Great location, festive decor and food that can't be beat make this one of our favorite stops in the city. The chips and salsa are tops and our lunch was served piping hot and was flavorful. We ordered sour cream and guacamole as extras and it really wasn't enough to share. Service was very good.

We tried to go to a place that was highly recommended on Ontario Street, but the wait was 2 hours. While having a beer a bar waiting, I searched using my phone and found this place. We called and there was no wait. We walked over from the other place and were seated immediately. They have an extensive (and awesome)... More

I popped into Such Casa and was a bit disappointed with the service and food. I was given my bill without evening asking for it. I probably wouldn't come again.

Left the Chicago Auto Show in -5 degrees Fahrenheit and walked from Millenium Station to look for a great place to eat. We were freezing and walked into Su Casa. They were so welcoming! They have a large margarita menu and their food menu was a good size. The margarita was probably the best I have ever had. The food... More

Very nice lunch and a terrific margarita. The service was outstanding. There's a reason this place has been there for 50 years!

I went for an early dinner. I had the chicken mole. The mole sauce was very good, made from peanuts and almonds, but the chicken breast must have been frozen, not fresh. The texture of the chicken was spongy. The margarita and tequila menu is pretty extensive. The margarita I had was good but nothing spectacular. Service was fast and... More

Food is genuinely authentic with a perfectly seasoned salsa and maybe the best chile relleno I have ever eaten (and I have eaten a population of poblanos). Service is relaxed and excellent.

This place has a sign outside stating that they have the best margaritas in Chicago. Well if this is correct Chicago has the worst margaritas in the US Mainland. The food was also a big disappointment. I don't have much to say about this place only that it has a great location and should change everything about it. Not my... More

I walked to this little restaurant on Ontario St. from my hotel to place an order to go. The decor was really nice and eye-catching on the outside and equally as cozy on the inside from what I could see from the lobby area. The service was very fast, hostess was very friendly and the food was very good. We... More
