Mi Casa is a local landmark, set into a strip mall on 17th Street in Costa Mesa. I have been going there for close to 36 years now and love it every time. Owned and operated by the Moore family since it’s inception in 1972, it is a favorite stop for the Costa Mesa/ Newport Beach locals. On any given evening there can be a waiting list, and well worth it. They do not take phone reservations, and request all your party be there before you put your name on the list. Mi Casa is still family run, and most likely your waiter or waitress is related to one of the Moore clan somehow. The ambiance is on the darker side, but lively. There is always a million conversations going on and from almost anywhere in the restaurant one can hear the bustle in the kitchen. While waiting for a table, or if just a libation is desired, one can wait in the bar. Aptly named “The Burro Room,” it also has it’s own entrance at the rear of the building.
