We will be closed on Sunday April 16 to observe the holiday. Both locations will resume regular hours on Monday. We wish you all a wonderful Easter holiday!

Good news for our Albuquerque location!
Now you can enjoy a cold bottle of Corona, Tecate, dos Equis Amber or Lager, Modelo Especial, or a Happy Camper IPA along with your tacos.
Yeah, it’s here – every 7 days! And if you’re reading this on a Monday, tonight’s the night!

In observance of the Easter Holiday, we’ll be CLOSED on April 24, 2016 in Elephant Butte and Albuquerque. Hope you all have a sweet and blessed Easter!
Casa Taco is NOT fast food! We make ALL our food from scratch. Every order is made FRESH when you order it.
Casa Taco “Signature Tacos” are made on a griddle, which gives them that crispy goodness everyone loves. During busy times, it may take longer for your order to be completed as we serve both dine-in and carry out guests with equal priority.
Thank you in advance for your patience. We truly believe it will be worth your wait!
Please note, our Elephant Butte location is closed for a holiday break. We’ll reopen on January 7, 2016 – in time for the 1st Thursday Enchilada Night of the New Year!
Albuquerque location is open, keeping normal hours on New Year’s Eve & New Year’s Day. We’ve got some good surprises coming in 2016. Come see us!
Happy Taco Monday! The Elephant Butte location offers $1.50 Ground Beef Tacos every Monday from 4pm-close.
Thank you to our patrons, we are grateful for you!
Please note our Thanksgiving hours:
The ALBUQUERQUE LOCATION will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.
In ELEPHANT BUTTE we’ll close Thursday (Thanksgiving) and Friday.
Our Grand Opening special (Albuqueruqe only) – Walking Tacos for $1 – has resulted in a pretty big debate over on Facebook: is it called a Frito Pie or is it called a Walking Taco? And if you call it a Walking Taco, are you even worthy of owning a taco shop? 🙂
It’s Frito Pie on our menu, but for the promotion, it’s served in a Frito Bag and you’re “walking”…so we went with Walking Taco, which is what Midwesterners call it. We didn’t mean to poke a hornet’s nest, but we did. People have strong feelings about this!
So call it what you like, but be sure to visit the Albuquerque location this coming Friday Saturday & Sunday (August 28-30, 2015) to get a bag of delicious Fritos topped with our house-made pinto beans, ground beef, red or green chile, cheese, lettuce, onion, and tomato – for only $1!
Folks, now you can come see us in Albuquerque, where we are OPEN DAILY from 11am until 9pm.
This taco gif brought to you by TacoWeek.com. It spins out at you like a mandala right? Ommmmmmmmtacos.
Reminder, TACO NIGHT starts at 4pm today. $1.50 for seasoned ground beef tacos toppd with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and (you add the) freshly-made Casa Taco salsa.
Here’s a little song and dance to work up your appetite. Come see us tonight—and every Thursday—and enjoy Beef Enchiladas for $1.50 each! Smothered in red chile, green chile, or both.
EVERY MONDAY NIGHT you can enjoy ground beef tacos at Casa Taco for $1.50 each. We also have a Monday night nacho special: get an order for only $2.
Here’s a photo of our yummy beef tacos on the grill (with a brisket taco or two on the back row). After they’re grilled we dress them up with fresh taco toppings like lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes. Grab your own fresh salsa from our salsa bar; sour cream & guacamole may be purchased separately.
At $1.50 per, you’ll be saving money with every taco you eat! 🙂
But we hope you’ll try to save room for one of our desserts, perhaps even a warm brownie sundae, shown below.
The Nacho Mama Platter is a heaping plato of handmade seasoned tortilla chips topped with our house-made chile con queso, pinto beans, shredded cheese, lettuce and tomato. Substitute brisket (shown here) or add a 2 oz. scoop of guacamole, 2 oz. scoop of sour cream, or jalapeños for an extra charge.
Home-made dumplings, with vegetables and chicken…just like James’s Grandma used to make! This will be on the menu until the weather warms up, at $3.95 a bowl.
Casa Taco Chimichangas – cubed beef, potatoes, cheese and green chile, wrapped in a flour tortilla and deep-fried, then served with sour cream and beans and rice plus your choice of chile (red, green, or both). (Shown above: no sour cream.)
We first bit into a Chimichanga in Phoenix in the early 1980s. According to Wikipedia, “though the chimichanga is now found as part of the Tex-Mex repertoire, its roots within the U.S. seem to be in Pima County, Arizona.”
If you love rolled beef enchiladas, then visit us on any Thursday night and bring your appetite! Thursday is when our Enchilada Special is available – any time after 4pm, get beef enchiladas (a la carte) smothered in either red or green chile (or both) for the tiny price of $1.50 each.
Hope to see all you enchilada lovers soon! As a reminder, enchiladas are always available on our menu, and in varying styles (flat, rolled, cheese, chicken and beef). But if you want them for $1.50 per, then get out here on Thursday.
Casa Taco will be closed Tuesday December 23 through January 7, reopening on Thursday January 8.
Come in early December to get your taco fix! If we miss you, see you in 2015. Happy Holidays everyone!
Have you tried our chile cheese fries? Might want to check them out sometime – fresh-fried shoestrings topped with our house-made red or green chile, all topped with cheese and broiled until bubbly. Some of our customers are slightly addicted, so please use caution.
If you go there, since it’s December – why not make’em Christmas.*
*Christmas = red and green chile on the same dish, red on one side / green on the other, aka “half and half” or “50/50” or even just “both.”
Sold at Casa Taco starting Friday the 24th – COUPONS good for a free kid-sized beef taco! Limited to age 12 and under, and must be accompanied by an adult…(but we won’t be carding so bring on the kids!!).
(Value of $56.50 for only 5 bucks – 20 cents a taco!)
Coupons are valid until April Fools 2015.
We’ve added another item to our menu for the short-term – Blue Corn Chaquitos – influenced by the tasty food of Central Mexico! We roll spicy chicken in blue corn tortillas, fry them crisp then smother them in a savory tomatillo sauce with monterey jack cheese.
Did you make it out to Elephant Days? The weather was great, the carnival was awesome, some way cool prizes were doled out, and everyone seemed to have a great time.
The tacos we whipped up for Elephant Days were so popular that we decided to keep them on the menu. New tacos available NOW at Casa Taco:
Hey guys, we’ll be set up in the Vendors Area at Elephant Days this weekend (September 13 & 14) serving some tasty specials including Yuccatan Pork Taco with Asian Cucumber Slaw, Jamaican Jerk Chicken Tacos with Pineapple Habañero Salsa and (for the vegetarians) Fresh Green Chile with Asadero Cheese and Pinto Beans in a Flour Tortilla (grilled)!
We’ll also be in the parade – look for the big taco!
It’s going to be a fun weekend, come see us in Elephant Butte.
(Actually we’ve known that for a while now, doesn’t make it any less exciting.)

It was with profound pleasure and excitement that we welcomed “Mr. Bill” (you know, of “Saturday Night Live” fame) to Casa Taco this past Sunday!
Mr. Bill had gone on a tour of Spaceport America earlier in the day, and the tour guide was kind enough to recommend Casa Taco to the tour group as they cruised back to the station.
After noshing on a 3-order of our Brisket Tacos, Mr. Bill posed for a photo next to our sign.
Thanks for visiting Mr. Bill! Hope you’ll come back soon! You too Mr. Hands!
The restaurant will be closed all day Thursday and Friday October 10 & 11.
We apologize for the inconvenience!
We’ll be back in business on Saturday starting at 11am. Come see us this weekend! Long Live Tacos!
Happy “Beginning of Summer” to our patrons — past, present, and future! We invite you to come and get some tacos (or quesadillas, or ice cream) this weekend!
We can practically make tacos in our sleep, but GIANT tacos, like the kind you affix to the top of Jared’s Jeep? They require a different skill set.
We figured we needed a trained artist. And it was getting late! Andrew Martinez of Hot Springs Frame & Art Supply was fortunately available and willing.
It undoubtedly helped that he’s studied our tacos closely and with regularity – meaning, almost every Sunday at around 1 – and he did a superior job.
He even threw in salsa and chip! Thanks Andrew, great work!
