One of my favourite restaurants in Chicago. Great ambience. Margaritas are very good. Portions are big and very tasty.

I love this place. So friendly. Such good margarita! (Ask for it spicy!) And affordable. I get the shrimp fajitas and my heart is reborn.

This place hasn't changed in 25 yrs....food is still good but charged us $4.00 for a side of sour cream that was literally 2Tbsp.....service was a bit lacking & we had a reservation & still had to wait 15 min. for our table. I luv the location & will go back but they def need to improve some things.

We were welcomed warmly and seated right away. The menu was varied and extensive. Ordered Margaritas, one strawberry and one original. Both were really good and quite large and not diluted. Nice way to begin. We got guacamole and chips, both house-made and fresh and tasty. The salsa was fresh, cold and tasty. My Chicken in Mole was not the... More

This is not a real Mexican restaurant but TexMex, and Chicago has many real Mexican places. This is not just one of them. The Margaritas are good but the Tacos and Burritos are just average.

Great drinks at the bar. Same owner as the family who started UNO's pizza. This kind of restaurant was his calling

We arrived at the busiest time and surprisingly got seated in less than 10 minutes. Waitress was super nice and food was excellent and served fast. The pina colada was yummy. I had chicken enchiladas with red sauce that was delicious. I recommend Su Casa for sure 👍🏻

The sign said best Margheritas in Chicago and they were not wrong. First time in a long time that I've had a cocktail in a bar that actually had the right amount (probably more) of alcohol in it. Watching the old Mrxican guy mix them was a treat. Wouldn't like to be the person cleaning the floor that night. The... More
