We dined several times at Su Casa since we love Mexican food, were staying across the street at the Travelodge and had a 25% off coupon. Each experience was very good but our favorite meal was when Salvatore was our waiter. He was so friendly with his good humor and warmth. It makes such a difference when one is not... More

Su Casa, been here a few times over the years while visiting San Diego and the La Jolla neighborhood. The food is good, but the Happy Hour sign and menu lead many to believe the prices are reduced - not so with the menu as it is the food is further reduced, but the alcohol is already reduced so very...

Friendly staff and great food. The fresh Guacamole is to die for and they have delicious margaritas.

The food was good but I'm more accustomed to Tex Mex. They were short staffed but it all worked out all right. The Mexican Shrimp Cocktail was good. The cheese quesadilla was good and my grandaughter finished all of it. I had a beef taco and cheese enchilada which were good but more on the bland side. The guacamole was... More

We were here a couple of times and liked the daily drink specials and variety of mexican food stuffs. It was across from the motor lodge we stayed at so it was very convenient.

My husband rated his meal a 5. I rated my meal a 3. So we went with a 4 for the rating. The staff was great. The atmosphere very casual. There was a large party near us which made it incredibly noisy. Between the noise from the large group and the speaker right near us, it was difficult to hear... More

We went in right after they opened at 5:00 pm on a Wed evening. Chips were warm and Salsa was average, with zero kick to it. I ordered a margarita that was very good. Our meals arrived quickly. Food was plentiful, but nothing to write home about. My husband ordered the Durango plate and I ordered one of their tamals... More

The salsa that came with the free nachos at the start of the meal tasted of nothing but water and a bit of chilli, and this was typical of the whole meal. The mixed shrimp, chicken and beef fajitas was bland and boring. There were no jalapinos served with it and no refried beans, and everything lacked salt and any... More

You can't beat good fresh food & fresh prepared guacamole at your table does not get any fresher. Refreshing margaritas went well with Lost Tres Amigos Plus Tamal. 70 bucks for 2 is not that bad. Free parking outback. & if you get here early on - first thing in the evening - there is plenty of space.

I have been going to this restaurant for, oh, 30+ years, right after it opened. At that time they were offering 50% off to 'locals' to generate a client base. Marvelous, and continued to be so up until a year or so ago when plans were develop to sell the restaurant and adjoining property. That sale apparently fell though, as... More
