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

This small restaurant is better than expected. The margaritas are great, and there is good food variety. If you order the guacamole as an appetizer, they come with a cart near your table and make it fresh from scratch right in front of you.

We stopped in here for a quick lunch. The salsa was impressive as it had a little bite to it and a very fresh flavor. I had the lunch taco's and my wife had the chicken taco salad. disappointed that they could not provide ranch dressing only the house that she described as bland. The beans and rice were pretty...

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
