Absolutely delicious. Unique twist on many dishes. The service was friendly and I loved the casual atmosphere. Tips go to charities. Ours supported the cleanup of the Racoon River.

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

Casa Nueva is a favorite when I visit Athens. The food is always delicious and the right price. The including tip system is nice also. I also enjoy the variety of drinks and the enjoyable atmosphere of the restaurant.

We used to come here to eat every time we were in Athens. Hadn't been in a long time, so we were really looking forward to it. We remember fresh, flavorful entrees. What we received were horrible dry burnt enchiladas. They were pathetic in their little coffins, and for the price, there was hardly anything there, not that it mattered... More

The sign outside reads "Employee Owned." Also posted is that tips are not accepted and will be donated to charity. So.... do I make a charitable contribution? I guess the answer is no (but I did anyway). The staff simply states that they don't accept tips and donate them to charity. IMO it would be more genuine, and better service,... More

Spent the day hiking at Hocking Hills, & decided to seek this place out on a recommendation of a coworker. It was so good!! The food was fresh & served with the nicest presentation!! They have LOTS of veggie/vegan options, but my husband, the carnivore/omnivore, had no trouble finding a yummy meat filled burrito!! Glad we went!! Super satisfied!!

I went here with a friend. We shared our meals because they were both so good! They were very busy so we did have to wait a short while, but totally worth it(just on the table not on the food!). Everything was fresh and tasted great. Plus after they are done serving food they have a great music scene and... More

This place was so good, and the menu very unexpected! They have a lot of locally sourced and in season ingredients. Everything is freshly prepared the way you want it. I had green chile enchiladas with chicken (so good), guacamole (very good) and a side of the vegetable of the day (rainbow chard, arugula, carrot, parsnips- I will be trying... More
