Most Mexican restaurants most places are going to serve "trayff", which is a Yiddish word indicating it is not only non-Kosher, but it is the sort of food that can never be made Kosher. Pork is clearly one of those prohibited sorts of food. There are no pork products because this large Mexican family are Jews, and are more observant... More

My wife and I joined a group of friends to celebrate a birthday at La Casa de Isaac, which was our first time at the restaurant. The organizer of the event had a range of food that came out, so we ended up trying the chicken fajitas, sweet-glazed salmon, and the marinated skirt steak, along with sides of rice and... More

We saw a Groupon for this restaurant and visited. The food was exceptionally great and the service was just as great. My friend was thrilled that their ladies night margarita was prepared with a top brand tequila. The chicken enchilada soup was the best I've had in this market. Another visitor at another table who was enjoying their first meal... More

Our regular mole' spot. Drinks are great as tequila selection is superior. Staff treatment is like family, huggs and all. NO BAGGED CHIPS, fresh and hot with guacamole adaptable to every palate. Breakfast is the best..nice selection and so consistent. Myself, I treasure mole' on my chicken skillet with onions and potatoes.

Very good Mexican dishes, whether going for a unique special or a simple classic. Service is excellent. Both indoor and outdoor seating areas. And the chips and salsa to start are also excellent!

Fantastic authentic food, great ambiance, large portions & excellent service. Isaac's Mother's-Favorite Enchiladas are a flavorful standby. The fish tacos are the most authentic I've had in the entire Chicago area. And their mole sauce is incredible: more spice than chocolate, which I love! They are closed on the Sabbath, which you have to respect. The one negative is that... More
