Casa Mendoza Symbol

Our Story

We have two locations to serve you. Our La Quinta Location is nestled in Old Town La Quinta with a beautiful view of the San Jacinto mountains. While our new location in Palm Desert is conveniently located just blocks from the world renowned El Paseo Shopping District.

From breakfast to dinner, Casa Mendoza prides itself in making all its meals from scratch. Owners both Ramiro Mendoza and Martina Mendoza offer it all; a sizzling and tasty lunch, dinner plates, delicious sides, divine drinks and savory desserts in a fun and intimate family environment.

After more than 25+ years in the business where Ramiro began as a busboy, they decided to open a 100% Mexican authentic family owned and operated restaurant with a full bar since 2014. Their secret to success is creating hand-made meals right on the premises using only fresh ingredients.

“Most of our meals are from my mother’s own home cooking, and some are based on the best recipes from places I’ve worked in the past.” – Ramiro Mendoza

As one of the highest rated restaurants in the area, Casa Mendoza has no specialties – every meal is handcrafted with the same quality anyone is welcome to request their own preferences. Warm up your taste buds with some of the best chips and salsa around town. Its well known plates such as the sizzling Fajitas which includes a side of beans and rice with a choice of chicken, beef, shrimp or all three! & the Camarones Mendoza featuring grilled shrimp stuffed with crab meat wrapped in bacon and drizzled with melted cheese are a must try! Let’s not forget everyone favorite, Skinny Cadillac Margarita and the famous Chavela both made from fresh ingredients. The little ones may enjoy a refreshing Shirley Temple or a Roy Rogers for the kids. Don’t miss out on a treat and satisfy your sweet tooth with a hot/cold Fried Ice Cream or homemade Flan. We invite you to come out and enjoy a savory meal at Casa Mendoza, where you will always eat a delicious meal in a fun ambience.
