Casa De Mi Padre: Not Just a Will Ferrell Movie

It was a Saturday evening and we were looking for a new place to try.  Thanks to Yelp, we found one in Casa De Mi Padre.  It was so new that the various map apps argued as to where it was located.  We walked in to a dimly light, relaxed atmosphere.  We got seated right away, but service seemed a little slow.  We were served chips and 3 different types of salsa in a cute container.  The salsas were very good and the chips were okay.  We ordered margaritas and they were very generic tasting.  When our meals came, we were quite overwhelmed.  I ordered the steak tacos al carbon and Mike ordered the tacos al pastor.  Each meal was also accompanied by a big plate of rice and beans.  Our tacos were amazing and we got so much food.  The rice was different with almost a buttery taste and the refried beans were great too.  We had skipped appetizers in hopes of getting a dessert, but there was no room left.  Mike finished his meal, but I didn't even come close.  Maybe next time we will split a meal so we can try dessert.  We got the check and I realized that there was a mistake, they had forgotten to charge us for the margaritas.  I talked to the hostess (owner), who informed me that they were complimentary, as they didn't have their liquor license yet.  I am hoping that maybe once that happens, the margarita quality improves.  We loved the food and hope this cute little place makes it.
