I always enjoy my meals and Margarita's at Su Casa. Not your usual house Margarita's, they all taste great. Many options too full bar and tasty menu.

Love this place. It feels like a little hole in the wall but the food is fantastic, and the drinks (read: Margaritas) are fantastic. Service was really good too, and all at a great price.

My mission in life is to eat Mexican food in every state in the union. Su Casa may have ruined me for all others! We chose tequila samplers in our margaritas. Our waiter stood by our table and explained how the tequilas tasted different depending on how they were aged or stored. Each one we ordered had a subtly different... More

Stumbled across Su Casa on the way to another restaurant and decided to visit another evening. Glad we did. It's got an authentic, non-chain feel to it. Was opened in 1963 and has a lot of character. Very generous portion of tortilla and salsa while choosing our food, and restaurant was accommodating when I wanted a combination not on the... More

Decided to try out this restaurant as it was close to my hotel. So glad I did! Beautifully dcorated, wonderful staff and plenty of great food. After ordering I was given a very generous amount of chips and salsa. I ordered the tamales which came with 3 plus rice and beans. It was almost more than I could eat. I... More

We now live in the UK, where really good Mexican restaurants are still rather difficult to find. So while visiting Chicago on our recent holiday, my sons were pestering us to go to Uno's or Due's. We noticed that Due's was relatively close to where we were walking, but as we approached, we saw Su Casa. First off, don't think... More

This used to be an excellent restaurant, but it's not the same anymore. Food is just O.K. Didn't have their margaritas that were very good.

This place is owned by the same people as Pizzeria Uno and Pizzeria Due (And also around the corner), but is not at all the same quality of food. The salsa was pretty good. But after that, it was downhill from there. The fajitas were bland. My kids quesadillas were dry. The cheese dip was ok. And the flan was... More

This is a landmark type of place! They have the best margaritas and very good service! We only had guacamole which was delicious but the food passing by looked very good! Stop in for a refreshing Rita and enjoy the nostalgia...
