Casa De Tellez
1423 Bunting Street
Pottsville, PA 17901
While some reviewers have compared this to chain restaurants that isn't really a comparison, most of these chains are tex-mex food. Tex-Mex is a different style food that has been influenced by Southwest cooking. While I enjoy both types of cooking they are different. Casa De Tellez is traditional Mexican cooking. They are also known for their steaks which I always say I'm going to try but end up going with my favorite Mexican dishes. Last night I had a chicken enchilada, a cheese enchilada, served with rice, beans and soup to start. A Margarita for me and a Dos Equis for Jim. He had a combination plate taco, enchilada, and a Machaca (similar to a burrito but spicier shredded beef). We both enjoyed our meals and will be back when we are looking for a night of Mexican cooking, maybe I will even try those steaks everyone raves about. It is rather dark inside, a very casual place one side has booths and there is a larger room of tables for big groups.
Unfortunately dove into my dinner without ever getting a photo......maybe next time. Their desserts sound good but I have never left enough room to try them.
