Our waiter, Eric, must have been given a mandate to push the trout. He pushed it pretty hard, too. En route to a neighboring table with a plate of trout in hand, he went so far as to pause at our table to show it off – to the dismay of the trout’s owner, I’m sure! It didn’t escape me that the trout was the second most expensive item on the menu. None of us ordered it, although it did look pretty tempting.
Eric’s efforts notwithstanding, the guidebook was right about the food. Our nacho appetizer, overflowing with beans, cheeses, fresh guacamole, and all the extras you’d expect, held us over until our entrees arrived. I was so full of appetizers, in fact, that I couldn’t manage more than the Southwestern corn chowder. Perfect for a light eater, it came in a modest but not skimpy-sized bowl, set on a larger plate which also held two tiny quesadillas. What a treat! The rest of our table stuck to the basics, and gamely dug into their oversized burritos, quesadillas, and tacos washed down with another round of margaritas.
With the festive, colorful décor you’d expect from a Mexican restaurant in a resort community and a lively, upbeat crowd, Mi Casa is a fun spot for a filling meal. Right across the street from the skier drop-off for Peak 10, it’s also conveniently located. Just be sure to get there early so you can get a table – and if you see Eric, and he’s still pushing the trout, order something else!

Mi Casa is much larger on the inside than I first expected it to be. The interior walls are made of a pale stucco. The ceiling is brick supported with dark timbers, and the floor is a red stone. Oil paintings hang on the walls. Books line shelves for decoration. Lights made of chipped glass hang from the ceiling.
The night of our visit our waiter arrived quickly with chips and exceptional salsa made from fresh tomatoes, bell peppers and onions. He won my wife's heart by presenting her with a flower in honor of Valentine's Day! Our entrees were exceptional, too. Our son ordered from the very reasonably priced kid's menu: chicken nuggets shaped like dinosaurs. An array of frozen drinks are on the menu, too, and the bartender will whip any of these up without the alcohol for children. My wife had spinach and mushroom enchiladas full of cream cheese and covered in chipotle yucatan cream sauce. I found my fish tacos satisfying. I noticed the special for the day was actually Mahi Mahi, so I believe the menu would suit a wide range of tastes. There are even some selections for vegetarians such as the portobello sandwich. Of course, we topped our dinner off with refried ice cream covered in strawberry and chocolate sauce!
While we did not eat at the Keystone location, there is also a Mi Casa on 22869 US HWY 6, Mt. View Plaza, Keystone. (970-262-9185).
I'd highly suggest this restaurant to anyone in the mood for Mexican.
