East Atlanta lucked out last year when CANTINA LA CASITA opened, serving wonderful, cheap Mexican food in a friendly dive-bar setting. La Casita is a great place for a cheap but fun date, or to spend a summer evening getting drunk on the patio with a group of friends. We especially love the enchiladas with red sauce ($5.85), the pork tacos ($2.35) and the $4 margaritas ($2.50 on Mondays). The kids beans and rice is hard to beat for $1.75. The staff is a reflection of the neighborhood tattooed, friendly, and full of personality.
