Cruise on Over to Casa de Luz

Casa de Luz Sign

Nestled in the heart of downtown Branson you will find Casa de Luz.  Casa de Luz is a quaint family owned restaurant that serves both Mexican and traditional American foods, allowing for a nice variety.  It is know for its authentic Mexican breakfast, and boy is it good!

Casa De Luz Traditional Breakfast   Casa De Luz Mexican Food

It was the perfect place for our family to eat because my husband and I loved the opportunity to experience a breakfast other than the norm, and our children loved to be able to order the traditional pancakes and sausage.  All of our food was amazing and not a morsel of food was left on our plates!  The food is all made to order and you can tell they put their heart and soul into their dishes.  We especially loved the fresh tortillas!  The presentation of our dishes was spectacular as well!

Casa De Luz Mexican Lunch

Their menu, full of authentic Mexican foods and traditional American foods, offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner items, although they close at 3:00 p.m M-S and at 2:00 on Sunday.  Casa de Luz gets great reviews on tripadvisor for great food, great prices, fast and friendly service, and a good atmosphere.  They are a very family friendly restaurant as well and on the casual side.

If you find yourself in downtown Branson and are craving some amazing, tasteful food, stop on in to Casa de Luz.  I guarantee you you will not be disappointed and will probably return numerous times like we have.  Enjoy!
