Nice dinner

Almost didn't stop here on a visit to Chicago during the crazy Lalapoolza and after reading some of the reviews. However I'm glad we stopped. Our service was great and the food was really good. The salsa was spicy and chips were good. My companion had the shrimp fajitas and said they were good... read more

Reasonably priced, quick friendly service. I had the bean and vegetable burrito with the guacamole and chips. My friend had the steak tacos. Everything was fresh, tasty, and reasonably priced! We spent $25 on lunch for 2 and were VERY satisfied. Only criticism was that the tortilla chips were a little greasy. Guacamole was super fresh.

Recently ate here while in Chicago. I picked this place because most other places in the general area had stopped serving food for the night. I sat at the bar and the service was good and the food came out fairly quickly. I had a bean burrito with chicken. The price was reasonable, however, I really did not care for... More

We are not familiar with Mexican food so difficult to rate the food in comparison. We did enjoy the food though. It felt authentic Mexican and we enjoyed Mexican beer with the meal. We were served chips and salsa when we arrived and while waiting for the main meal. Served by an elderly lady – friendly and efficiently. An enjoyable... More

The server took FOREVER to come back to get our dinner order. There were four other tables in the small side room we were seated in and they all had their food and bills before we were ever given the chance to order. (We had a different server.)

We've been here for lunch a few times, and never been disappointed. They look after you well, though it's not nicely located near an alley with trash cans, it's definitely worth the visit.

Did not care for the experience. Food was mediocre and waitress was as well. Chip basket had chips remaining from previous customers.

Would not recommend. The food was over cooked. The tamale was probably good last week and the burrito was wet. Too bad only a few days in Chicago and wasted a meal here

Save your time and money on this place. Chicago has some wonderful restaurants and many times it seems on every corner. This is not one of them. Would call it a tourist trap. Stay away. Bad food and poor service.

My daughter and I stopped at Su Casa knowing we didn't need a lot of food late at night. We ordered a combination plate to share and enjoyed every morsel along with a side of tasty guacamole. There's nothing fancy about Su Casa but we found the food to be well worth the stop.
