I had heard very good things about Casa Nueva, so I was excited to try it. Unfortunately, my order was late to the table compared to all the others. Then I tried the quesadilla that had taken so long to prepare. I ordered a beef...More

Hi Michelle. First, I'd like to apologize for your negative experience. I'd like to ask for a little more information so we may address your concerns. I'm wondering if you dined in the restaurant or in the Cantina and ordered from the bar. Clearly your...More

Very busy on a weekday during holiday season even though Ohio university students were on holiday break. We waited in the bar area for a table to open up for about 25 minutes. Food was good, but not great. Prices are higher than average but...More

We were there about 8 pm on a Sunday. There was still a long wait but we were able to find a table in the bar area, which is almost as big as the restaurant. We ordered some build-your-own nachos and some "get your own"...More

Great burritos. We had great service also. We got there on a Saturday around 4:15 pm, we had to wait about 25 minutes. The bar has a great selection of beer and extensive drink menu. Would go again.

Very good choice for FRESH!!! One thing was cool is they don't accept tips found that very interesting for a restaurant. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. Pork taco was very filling.

While the food was good the service was indifferent and I wasn't sure why there was a wait as there were tons of empty, clean tables. The staff was polite but not overly friendly. The prices are slightly higher but that is because they have...More
