If you are looking for a Mexican restaurant that combines great food, ambiance, and excellent service, look no further than Deli Casa in Kingsburg, California! This restaurant is the real deal. Established in 1993 by owner Olivia Sons, Deli Casa should be one of your first choices when considering Mexican fare. 
I had occasion to dine there for lunch this week as I was attending what I like to call an “eating meeting” (my favorite kind by the way) with a group of friends. I was immediately drawn to the ambiance of the establishment by the tiled floors and frescoed walls, all done in earth tones reminiscent of a Villa in Tuscany. Quaint old-world charm in a modern setting, a big hit with me!
We were greeted warmly by Olivia and immediately seated in a section with our group. Our server Catherine was on the scene in an instant to take our drink orders. She was quite attentive throughout the meal and as the size of our group grew beyond our table’s ability to accommodate, she quickly assented to allowing us to add another table and chairs to our section! Old-World ambiance with attentive, flexible wait staff, are you kidding me? In today’s world I might consider eating there just for that but wait…..The best is yet to come!
As our meeting got under way I couldn’t help being distracted by the delicious aromas emanating from the kitchen. Mexican spices, chilies, meats cooking, the scents were simply mesmerizing, so much so that I couldn’t wait for our orders to be taken! 
I ordered chicken enchiladas in red sauce, or as the locals say, “enchiladas de pollo en salsa rojo” with rice and beans “frijoles con arroz”. Each person in our group ordered something different so there were quite a variety of entrees available to tempt our respective palettes.
When our food arrived our meeting which had been moving along quite briskly came to a sudden halt as 7 sets of eyes focused their attention on the delightful presentation of each plate. Conversation slowed to an occasional comment as we devoured our meals. My enchiladas were excellent, with incredibly tender morsels of chicken embedded in their tortilla cocoons, lavished with just the right amount of red sauce and melted cheese. I consider myself quite the enchilada subject matter expert and these were quite simply, incredible! The Mexican rice was done perfectly with excellent texture, not too moist not too dry, a welcome companion to the smooth creamy consistency of the refried beans. Truly an excellent meal!
I took a mini survey of my dining companions, and without exception they were all thrilled with their choices. Everyone said they would be definitely dining here in the future! If you are planning to get together with friends for Mexican cuisine I would definitely recommend visiting Deli Casa in Kingsburg, California, you will not be disappointed, in fact I believe most folks would give it 5 stars, but as we are apt to do while in Kingsburg….Deli Casa gets 5 Dala’s!
