So, we ate here on a weeknight. I read some of the other reviews and wasn't sure what to expect regarding the service but we had zero problems. Service and food were great. Cocktails were awesome! Guacamole was amazing! We left happy, full, and with...More

There are interesting add-in items on the menu like tofu and kale. There is no tipping – any tip received goes to charity. We both had burritos ($11.50 & $12.75) and they were just okay because they were dry, there wasn’t enough sauce to wet...More

Super yummy menu of local, wholesome ingredients. Locally owned by the employees, so no tipping. Service is a little slow, and expect a wait!

The fact that it is a coop matters since it doesn't quite operate like a regular full service restaurant. Everything will work smoothly if you recognize this. First. Food was fresh and tasty. Apparently locally sourced so that is a plus. Tap selection was good...More

My sister took my wife and me to Casa Nueva with her personal rave reviews - and we were not disappointed. It's kinda quirky, very laid back, super casual, and an eclectic menu tending toward vegetarian. It's the kind of restaurant that appeals to a...More

The food is pretty good. It is not your typical Mexican food, but rather an Athens, Ohio take on Mexican food. They have a full bar with a lot of beer on tap and in bottles. Typically, we have to wait a bit to get...More
