This business is a scam run by liberal socialists. Don't waste your time there. We waited two hours only to be asked to leave because we wanted to add a chair to the end of our booth. We asked for a table for 5, they seated us at a booth for four.There was a table that left after we ordered... More

For starters, I was here during Parent Weekend at OU, so that's why it was tough to get a seat. We tried Friday night, and the wait was over 90 minutes, so we left. The next day we went for lunch at 11:30. The restaurant side had a 30-min wait, but the bar side had immediate seating. However, by noon,... More

Our family has eaten here several times and have enjoyed many different dishes here. The happy hour is a great value and we enjoy sitting in the bar before going into the restaurant. Many times there has been a long wait so that tells you how fantastic the food is here! If you visit Athens (such a cute quaint college... More

I loved the Puerco Pibil enchiladas, however the waiter said they could not make them anymore because it would be two expensive. However, the web menu still lists the Puerco Pibil as a filling for enchiladas? : (

My favorite Mexican restaurant of all time. When I go for a weekend visit, I always stop at Casa Nueva for breakfast and dinner. Without fail, their margaritas are delicious and carry away all of my stress with just a few sips. The only think I don't like is the wait. It is a very popular restaurant.

CASA Nueva is a legend. The food is the standard for Mexican in Athens. Everyone is friendly and the restaurant is where people, when they return to Athens, must eat.

We come here every time we are in Athens. Not much to look at but the food and margaritas are worth it. Very tasty, fresh, local ingredients and the best tortilla chips I've ever had. Extremely unique menu items – not your everyday Mexican food.

Everyone in town talks this place up and after trying it twice, I won't be returning. The food quality was good, not very good, not exceptional. The price for that food, very high, too high. Some say "oh, but there's no tipping, so it's cheaper". The tips are already baked in to the price of the food and drinks and... More

Our meal was among the first to be served at dinner service. First thing we noticed is the odor of mild or mildew. Second, we learned that servers no longer work for gratuities, and it seems the result of that is the sever has NO motivation to do his/her job well. My food was absolutely the worst I've had in...

This is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in Athens. Whenever possible they use fresh, local ingredients and it shows through in the food. Casa would rather temporarily remove something from the menu than use sub-standard ingredients. The restaurant and cantina has a very creative and tasty cocktail menu featuring in-house infused spirits and fresh mixers. This is a... More
