“wow what a pleasant surprise!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2011

our old standard was closed so what a perfect time to try out this place....dropped in for lattes that were on special in the afternoon....since they were yummy and the atmosphere was interesting we went back for dinner....and it didn't disappoint!! The picked veggies with the chips were very unique....we split the autumn salad (very fresh lettuces, cranberries, apples, celery, carrots & a unique cheese) which was great and still had enough to take back to our room for a late night snack!! we went with standard mexican fare but it was amazingly different (chicken tacos & steak faquitas) with HUGE portions....again enough leftovers for later...along with a couple of drinks and the tab was under 50 bucks which i thought quite reasonable. The only problem was as mentioned in other reviews slow service. You got the impression everyone was doing multiple jobs....but they were always done well....just slow. So go when you're in no hurry!! Definitly will be back here!!

“Best Mexican Food in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2011

Su Casa has a great atmosphere and good food with large portions. They serve spicy pickled veggies with your chips while you wait - these are made in-house and better than salsa and chips any day. Husband and wife are almost always there working so if you have a problem ask for them. The owner is second generation (Su Casa of Fennville) and many recipes were handed down. They are normally closed January and February when the owners travel to stay with her parents – in Germany. We come here often and typically see many friends there as well.

“Not some place I will go back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2010

We ordered the Sunday special, a chimichanga. It was the worst Mexican food I have ever eaten. It had BIG pieces of pork wrapped in a tortia, deep fried. The meat hadn't been trimmed very well with pieces of fat on it. The meat was in a little sauce. It had nothing but meat in it with a very little cheese on top. It was served with some tasteless rice and lettuce.
They weren't very busy and service was slow...
Every time I think about my meal it makes me sick.

“A first timer, a life timer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2010

My best friend and I went were "first timers" to Su Casa in South Haven. It was a "girl's night out" and hubbys were left behind. The restautant felt very comfortable and not overwhelming with bold colors. Lily, our server, was friendly,cheerful, confident, and very paitent with all of our questions. We never felt rushed, like some restaurants.
The menu wasn't a book and the food was outstanding. The portions were worth their value. Thanks for a great night out! We will visit again. Maybe bring the hubbys, maybe not. Thanks! P. Bohle, Lawrence, MI

“Most interesting Mexican menu--delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

The atmosphere was so much nicer than many Mexican restaurants. Well-restored old building with high ceilings, nice lighting, good color choices. That said, the menu featured a wide range of entrees that were interesting--though we had to ask some questions since they were quite unique. All five of us enjoyed our meals and would love to go back to sample more of their choices!
