Snooty but wonderful.

This place is really good but no matter how many times I have been there I had to wait. I could see empty tables right in front of me. So I can never figure out what the wait is about. Otherwise amazing place. Excellent food and of course fresh and clean.

Casa is a wonderful place. There is a restaurant and a bar. The whole place is homey and comfortably worn, in a sort of oldish hippy way. I love to go there. For one thing, they have the BEST coffee in Athens, I think. Their breakfasts are so good. Whether you order a veggie dish, like a breakfast burrito, or... More

Casa has wonderful, often locally sourced, Mexican style food. Great flavor, usually healthy, and very predictable. Even before they went to a no-tipping policy (and raised prices about 20%) service was indifferent and often slow, but the food makes it worthwhile. Be prepared to wait unless you go at very odd times - it can be maddening to have a... More

Came with a party of 10. Very reasonably priced. Took great care of our large party. I had the enchiladas verde with chicken. So yummy!

I've been going to Athens, OH for years now and every single visit I make sure to stop at Casa Nueva (or just Casa, as locals call it). There food never ceases to amaze me in the combination of flavors they create and most (if not all) of it is locally grown in southeast Ohio. There selection of beers on... More

We arrived early afternoon and even though the college kids are away for the summer the place was still packs and we had to wait a half-hour for a table to open up. Good food, great staff willing to go the extra mile to make sure you are happy. I particularly liked the tasty tofu fries on the side to... More

We sat for 15 minutes with out even a "hello, be right with you". Left without being acknowledged and took our business to another local restaurant. "Worker owned" could use some "management" guidance...

I decided to try this restaurant while in Athens on business based on TripAdvisor reviews. I must say the food was pretty good. The ingredients seem very fresh and tasted great. I would certainly come here again!

Come here when we visit family who live in the area and LOVE Casa. Lots of sauce/salsa options for burritos which is the main stay of the menu. Bit off beat place - run by owner/workers. Food is fresh and flavorful. Service can be spotty but in fairness we usually have four adults and a gaggle of kids and toddlers.... More
