We've been at both this location and the one on Wabash Avenue. The food is very consistent on both places and the menu is the same at both locations. This location has been around for several years and we have been here several times specifically for lunch. We love their warm chips with salsa and you actually have to be... More

Excellent Mexican food. We are from New Mexico & get lots of Mexican food at home, so I didn't expect much on the road in Illinois but this was very good!

We used to love coming here, the food was great (though a little pricier than typical), service fast and an overall pleasant experience. The last few times the food has been meh, service terrible, music blaring and you can't hear a thing, hard to communicate with the wait staff, and the floor is either always filthy or wet causing a...

While the N. Grand location has been in operation for a couple years, they have opened a large new second location on the west side with obviously a huge investment. I'm not a huge fan of Mexican fare, but this place has been changing my mind. Servers are genuinely knowledgeable and caring. The menu is a bit overwhelming but very... More

No other Mexican restaurant can boast as much historical excellence as Casa Real Mexican Restaurant. If you love Mexican food, this is the right place you. The menu is extensive. The best guac. And friendly staff also.

I cannot say enough good things about Casa Real on North Grand. In the old red Coach Restaurant location. Friendly staff. great food. I never feel rushed (like in so many other places). The prices are fair. The portions are almost perfect. I would choose this as my favorite restaurant. It can't be beat. Their drinks are always mixed well.... More

I have ordered their food through order to eat, and even when it's delivered to me and not as fresh, it is excellent. Easy to order gluten free with corn tortillas. Try the chocolate cake, it is to DIE for!!!!!! I have been to the new location in person on Veterans, the menu is a bit different, but the atmosphere... More

If you like Mexican food, this is the place for you! The menu is extensive and has many options to please all kinds of eaters. The food is good and the service is usually above average. Do yourself a favor and go to the new location on West Wabash and Veterans Parkway. The older location on North Grand was dirty... More

I was so surprised to see bad reviews. I went here with my husband and daughter last weekend and loved it! I do agree there were some things on the menu that were overpriced (i.e. the queso dip). I ordered a burrito that had seasoned chicken, chorizo, rice, etc., which is totally outside my normal mexican restaurant order and I... More
