Can't go wrong with Casa. Veggies change, seasonal items change but the quality, portions, staff, and flavors are consistently great! Thanks for great locally, worker, owned restaurant.

Best bar in town is the Casa Cantina and the adjoining restaurant Casa Nueva serves reliably delicious food unlike anything usually called Mexican. Use of local ingredients keeps the menu changing and guarantees freshness. Service is friendly and ambience is busy. Can be quite noisy so if you have a hearing issue ask to osit in the kitchen side.

The food is high quality ingredients but isn't the most creative or flavorful. You can feel awesome about where your money is going though and you feel good after you eat it knowing its good quality healthy food sourced with as much local as possible.

Since my father originally is from Athens and I still have family there, I have been going to Casa for years. I always remember our visits to Casa with fond memories but this last visit to the restaurant was a little disappointing. Food took forever and tasted just average. Came back however a second time (but just to the bar)... More

Case Nueva was a fine place to eat. Good service, very attentive and helpful (kept picking up things our young children threw on the floor before we could). Food was okay, but could have been better. Hash browns were dry, and a bit tough as a result—probably too long under a warmer. Otherwise things were fine. We would probably eat... More

This is a cooperative that has been very successful for many years. They have great food and there is no tipping since the tips are included in the menu price. Lunch and breakfast are the easiest times to go since typically there is no waiting. Dinner can be difficult since you may have to wait for more than an hour... More

Always a busy restaurant but well worth the wait. The ability to get Drinks and appetizers in the bar area while we waited to be seated made the wait fly by. It is always nice to support a company the cares for its employees and pays them a fair rate without having to over charge their patrons.
