Good food

The restaurant has a ice decoration. The staff is very friendly. The margaritas are good and the main courses aspire a more elegant mexican cuisine.

Wow. Wanted Mexico atmosphere and food, hesitated after some write ups, but we were amazed at how great it is. I've traveled the world, with lots of time in Mexico, this was like being in country. My wife had ground beef enchiladas and me the shrimp (camarron) and beef fajitas. Food was hot, quality and well prepared. Bottomless soda, but... More

Found myself in Chicago Friday night without a reservation. Had the hungry family with me so didn't have a flexibility to wait till later. Settled on Su Casa based on a few reviews on Bing. Unfortunately I should have check Trip Advisor and made a different choice. There was a reason that when every other place was busy this place... More

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
