Mi Casa Mexican Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review: Mi Casa is a lively spot in the Newport-Mesa area for classic Mexican-American food and margaritas. Groups of guys, couples and families flock here to soak in the festive atmosphere, munch on chips and salsa, and order huge combination plates filled with refried beans and spicy rice. Expected dishes --- tacos, enchiladas, chile verde and chile Colorado --- are offered, as are a few more modern items such as chipotle citrus-marinated skirt steak and mahi mahi with tropical salsa. Although not open until 11 a.m., Mi Casa serves up some breakfast specialties like huevos rancheros. Eggs Benedict with chorizo and chipotle hollandaise sauce is among the special Sunday brunch selections. Regulars might come in through the bar's back door and sit down for chips and margaritas while they wait for a table, or they may just pop in for the caramel churro sundae. If you're looking to enjoy a little history, be sure to request the booth that President George H.W. Bush sat at when he dropped by for dinner.
