There are several Mexican cuisine options in Branson so it’s hard to know which ones are good, but I can assure you that a trip to Casa De Luz is time well spent.
This mexican restaurant is nestled between retail shops in the historic downtown Branson on Commercial Street and caters to those who enjoy traditional Mexican fare as well as tasty American dishes. This locally owned gem is the only restaurant in Branson that serves Mexican breakfast — and they serve it all day long!
I stopped in for a quick lunch last week with a friend of mine and we both ordered the combination plate, which offers a choice of three from a taco, an enchilada, a mini burrito and a mini chimichanga for just $10.99. It also comes served with rice, beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream and cheese.
The presentation of the food on it’s own was appetizing but it tasted just as good. The portion sizes are really large, in my opinion, so I had quite a bit of food left over on my plate well after I was stuffed full. And of course, you get unlimited homemade chips and salsa which is my favorite thing about Mexican restaurants!
The atmosphere inside Casa De Luz is very calm and there’s nothing really flashy or unique but the servers and staff are very welcoming and friendly. My friend and I were lucky enough to get a very nice server who was perfect. She made us feel important, checked up on us often but still gave us enough space and time to enjoy the meal without feeling rushed.
There’s certainly nothing negative I can say about Casa De Luz and I highly recommend it for any casual breakfast or lunch. Try it out and let us know what you think!
