My sisters celebrate our birthdays at Casa. It is convenient, friendly, efficient, yummy dessert- especially the warm cobbler, I like the chicken cutlet but there is several daily specials. A full bar for all our different choices.

Enjoyed their famous fried chicken dinners. Generous portion so had quite a bit to take home. At $20.95, lots of food for the money. Good wine selection. Valet parking available but we were lucky to find spot on the street almost at the door. Friendly...More
