Yummy local ingredients-great atmosphere

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

This used to be a favorite restaurant of mine, but the menu has changed from traditional Mexican food to more of a vegan menu with very few non vegan selections. The Cantina side is a good place to grab a beer and listen to local music. If you like vegan food you will probably love the attempt at vegan Mexican... More

As a vegetarian I was very excited to try this restaurant as they have tofu as an option (along with chicken and beef) for a filling in your taco, burrito, or enchilada. However, the menu was pretty confusing and my 13 year old gave up and said he just wasn't going to eat because he couldn't figure out how to... More
