    The little standalone building at Cassine Station (owned by Snappy Turtle folks I believe) across from One Seagrove Place in Seagrove has a new sign that says it will be a Mexican restaurant.

    Every year this place changes names / cuisine. It was ice cream, Nona's Pizza ...
    Flip Flops was going to go in there and that fell through.
    Crust was going to go in there that fell through.

    That's because he wanted $8900 a month for rent for 1300 sf.

    Sounds like you might be seeing more of a Mexican standoff than any Mexican for rent like that

    Sign went up (almost like a permanent one) and now it is gone. Never any sign of life there!

    It's for people who can't make up their minds what food they want to eat. They just go there and let themselves be surprised.

    There was a neon sign flashing open in the front window today, along with balloons. Can't wait to see some reviews!

    We stopped by today. The menu is quite simple and seems to be very authentic Mexican. Tacos on corn tortillas with your choice of protein and garnished with onions and cilantro, $1.99. One can add tomatoes, cheese, etc all for an extra cost. Maybe we will try it one day.

    Okay, Mi Casita reviewed by a Texaridian. Stopped in today for lunch. Menu, very simple, the basics, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, chimis and a few other things. No seafood. No enchiladas. I had a steak burrito $8.99 plus add ons are 75 cents, cheese, guac, sour cream, even vegetables. So it is easy to end up with a $15 burrito. I got my wife a chicken quesadilla, $7.99 with rice and beans. All in all not too bad. Fresh, good flavor, some prefab things..I think the beans were out of a bag. My fajitas blow doors on anything around here, so I will ley ya'll know next time the grill is fired up and we can have a rita and try them out.

    Ate their today for lunch! No frills, great food! I had the (3) tacos/beef and she had the Pork
    Carnitas. It was very good! Go give it a try. Nice relaxed place with very good Mexican food.
    I will go anytime I am in Seagrove. It's across from One Seagrove Place. Friendly people and great value for the money. We spent with a drink and tip $25.00 and were full! Most places around here are over priced and average food. Well worth a stop in when in the area. "Mi Casita"

    If you have not checked out this little Tex-Mex eatery that opened with little to no fanfare, I urge you to do so. It is in the location that used to be a pizza place and ice cream parlor (I think) and was supposed to be Crust. It appears to be a family affair with a menu that includes all the standards. Not a big place by any means, so take out may be their niche, but they do have some limited inside and outside seating. Note they don't serve alcohol but don't mind if you BYOB. The prices are great for this area and the product is better than any other Tex-Mex on 30-A (in my opinion). Check them out!

    Aren't they from Latvia? Did they employ mexicans?

    I think all restaurants here employ Mexican nationals regardless of the food genre. The guys up front didn't have a Latvian vibe.

    This place is fantastic!! The pork carnitas was delicious! They have great salsa. The gentlemen who served us were fantastic!! BYOB for now. A great spot for lunch after the beach, or they will even pack it up for you to go.
