After walking around downtown Chicago all day we were way too hungry to face the Friday night dinner crowds. So we popped into Su Casa and were seated right away. Our server was incredibly friendly and helpful and the food and drinks were served incredibly fast. However, the food was less than average and the drink sizes are not worth the the price. I love Mexican food and have tried numerous places all over the country. Skip this one.

If you want authentic Mexican this place is great. You won't get the greasy/cheese overload like at the chains. I had shrimp quesadillas and they were great!

I was staying in a nearby hotel, and we were enjoying a rather heavy snow storm. Walking out, in search of dinner, I was downwind from Su Casa, and had noticed it on the previous evening. It smelled promising. The promise made by my nose was fulfilled, I enjoyed a lovely dinner. The food was ample, and very well prepared. The service may have been a bit slow, but my server also had 2 big tables to contend with. I'd go back there in a heartbeat, and bring friends to enjoy it with me.

We were disappointed with this restaurant! The hostess acted as if she didn't want to give us a menu. Why, we're not sure! Then no one waited on us. We asked a waiter who was going to serve us, and he had a discussion with several servers and finally said, " no one knows about it", and then he took our order. He was very nice from then on. Food was mediocre, greasy, etc.:(

The food is generic, which may have something to do with the UNO pizza company owning it now! Great margaritas! But last Friday we arrived at 11:00 PM and a manager was warning the patrons she was going to close soon. ???? Why would you tell potential customers who want to SPEND MONEY that you want to close soon? And, she did! Usually we get great chips and salsa but that night we got the last batch of stale chip crumbs and the bright lights came on at midnight. We could tell the bartender wasn't happy. The woman manager was obviously in a hurry to leave and it ruined our visit, along with many other customers. So, go for the margaritas, leave the food alone unless you like generic corporate Mexican restaurant food that hasn't any personal touch.

The problem with reviewing Mexican restaurants anywhere let alone a city the size of Chicago is that the reviewer’s tastes vary. I see so many of the "Taco Bell" crowd who think that is Mexican to the "Grey Poupon" crowd who think if it isn't trendy it isn't good. Well I am here to tell you that I have frequented Mexican restaurants all around the US and Su Casa is as good as any I have been to. The food is always fresh ingredients prepared fresh and served with a smile. The comments about bad service…well…anyone can find that in the best of restaurants on any given day but overall you will be satisfied when you leave here if you know Mexican food. Whether you want the run of the mill taco, burrito, enchilada or you ask your server for a more “Mexican variation” of a menu item, you won’t be disappointed. As for the margaritas…if you like foamy versions of a chain restaurant margarita that resemble a Slurpee, you won’t find them here. These are authentic versions that coupled with your favorite premium tequila make for a very special experience that I have not found anywhere north of the border. I encourage you try a few different brands of tequila as that alone can change the flavor of the margarita dramatically and produce something that you will crave from that moment on. The bartenders are always very helpful and ready to suggest a tequila to use in you margarita based on their many years of experience. This is the kind of place that doesn’t get written up in Chicago magazine as the latest craze but it has been in the same location doing the same thing for almost 50-years. Enough said! No restaurant lasts that long in a city as large as Chicago unless it is special! You won’t be sorry you tried this one and tell them Fernando sent you! <smile>
