Casa Ramos is a family-owned restaurant featuring a cozy "rise-and-shine" decor, in the words of one employee. Descended from a Casa Ramos chain in California and first opened in Kansas in Emporia, the Topeka store serves authentic Mexican cuisine in a warm, relaxed and festive atmosphere. "If you want a taste of heaven, come to Casa Ramos," manager Alvaro Ramos says.
The family-oriented restaurant serves lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, while offering daily lunch and dinner specials. On Sundays, kids eat for 50 percent off. There are 99-cent margaritas Monday through Thursday and 99-cent Budweiser and Bud Light draws every day. Don't forget to look for the rubber chicken! (Updated 5.7.10)
