Las Casuelas Terraza Restaurant Review

: The Las Casuelas restaurants spread across the Coachella Valley aren't a chain; they're independently owned and managed by the siblings of the Delgado family, a desert dynasty created by Florencio and Mary Delgado in 1958. Each restaurant is different, linked by that most important common ingredient, the family recipes. Patty Delgado Service owns and operates Las Casuelas Terraza with a strong emphasis on the traditional and an occasional foray into lighter, more contemporary Mexican cuisine. In winter, the green corn tamales (not on the main menu) are well worth sampling. In summer, the Terraza Mexican chopped salad is a popular lunch selection. Whatever the season, the camarones diablos (shrimp wrapped in bacon with a fairly mild diablo sauce) is compelling. The bar boasts a terrific tequila collection. Take-out is available at the backdoor outlet, Pronto.
