True locals know the best Mexican food in the Magic City can be found in Homestead. Family-owned and -operated for over 30 years, Casita Tejas is that spot that instantly feels like home thanks to colorful plastic tablecloths and bowls of chips and salsa hitting the table before you’ve even had the chance to peek at the menu. Every plate is hearty, saucy, and full of flavor. No matter what you opt for, it’s going to be delicious, but the real star of the show is the Norteno, a large flour tortilla rolled with steak, grilled onions, rice, and cilantro, smothered with salsa suisa and melted monterey jack cheese, and served with sour cream and a side of rice and beans.
