Casa Moreno is a family-owned and run business in the heart of Downtown Covina. Since opening its doors in 1995, it has been a popular staple in the community, delighting diners with delicious mexican cuisine. The restaurant is a lunchtime go-to for locals, as well as a great meeting spot for hospital administrators, realtors, and other business owners and employees. Dinnertime also draws families from all around the area. Casa’s top three most popular dishes are the Suizas, Mole and Chile Rellenos. You’ll definitely want to compliment these yummy dishes with one of their signature drinks, such as the Casa Moreno Margarita, the Clooney, or a Michelada.
Casa Moreno’s appeal doesn’t stop at great food…they also have an incredible banquet room that seats up to 150 guests, equipped with everything you need to host weddings, business meetings, quinceñeras, or any other type of party or function. Be sure to stop in to the restaurant on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday to enjoy live entertainment with your meal.
The idea of Casa Moreno came about initially as a unique investment opportunity. The owner had always thought about opening a restaurant, and one day brought her family straight to the location in Covina after church, keys in hand: Casa Moreno was born. The restaurant had its struggles in the beginning, and in the true tradition of “family business,” all the owner’s family members pitched in to make it work: her husband started serving, one of her daughters came in to host after school, and her other daughter began managing the kitchen, while other relatives did the cooking.
It was at times chaotic and stressful, but ultimately, with the help and support of the community, Casa Moreno built up to the strong foundation it is today. Having honed in on the skills of success in their Covina location, Casa Moreno was able to replicate that model and open a second location in Claremont. Long term, the owners hope to one day franchise the business and expand into other communities similar to Covina.
When asked why they have chosen to stay in the restaurant business after 24 years, the answer was simple: the people. Not only has Casa Moreno had a strong impact on the people of Covina, but the people of Covina are the reason Casa Moreno happily keeps its doors open, its food tasty, and its drinks strong. Customers would tell you that walking into Casa Moreno is like walking into a family. The service is outstanding, and everybody knows your name. You will find it is a well named business, because when you come to Casa, it’s like you are coming home.
