It has been unseasonably hot for the past few weeks in Chippewa Falls. When the mercury is on the rise, there is no more refreshing adult beverage on than a cool and refreshing margarita. Whether you are a resident of the area, or you are just passing through, Casa Mexicana offers some of the best margaritas in the area.
Located on the corner of North Bridge Street and West Colombia Street, Casa Mexicana has a prominent location just across from the post office. Its colorful exterior features the red, white, and green colors of the Mexican flag.
The food is authentic and the portions are sizable for a very reasonable price. In most cases, a single serving is enough to satisfy the appetite of two adults. On most days, you see individuals leaving the restaurant with a contented look on their face and a bag of leftovers that make for a nice lunch the next day.
The margaritas come in a wide variety of flavors and are available on the rocks or blended. The glasses are rimmed with salt or sugar depending on the flavor, and they are sweet enough to be tasty without becoming overpowering.
The wait staff is attentive and courteous. The Casa Mexicana always has a festive atmosphere and the restaurant is the perfect location for parties.
They make a grand celebration for anyone having a birthday. Be advised that one of the traditions of celebrating a birthday in a Mexican restaurant is that the servers will wipe cream on the face of the person who is celebrating.
This action usually results in a cheer from all the patrons of the restaurant, but if you have a friend who doesn’t have a good sense of humor it’s best not to opt for the birthday celebration. However, after a quality margarita, it’s amazing how many people are willing to go along with the tradition.
Casa Mexicana does not dilute its flavors for the sake of the North American palate. While there are a wide variety of non-spicy options on the menu, items such as the Camarones a la Diabla are hot enough to make almost anyone break out in a sweat. Make sure you read the menu carefully and select an appropriate dish. Rest assured that it will be authentic and delicious.
The Casa Mexicana offers regular margarita specials every Monday. It has a fantastic decor featuring colorful murals which justify a visit all on their own. It’s a popular destination for individuals who have finished running events such as the Eau Claire Marathon as the combination of alcohol and sugar is the perfect way to commemorate a tremendous achievement.
With life returning to normal after the trials of the pandemic and the restrictions of masks and social distancing, the Casa Mexicana is ready to resume its place as one of the primary social gathering points of the Chippewa Valley.
There really is no substitute for a quality margarita. The Casa Mexicana is one of the best places to go to ensure your adult beverage is prepared with the attention to detail that elevates the adult beverage to a work of art. Remember to always drink responsibly and enjoy the beautiful Wisconsin summer.
