Big bones and gristle in my chicken burrito that I ate the next day. I don't know if we will go back though it's been one of our family's favorites for several years.

We went to La Casa de Isaac and Moishe with family visiting from out of town. The food was delicious, and the decorations are cool. We went at an off time, so I can't say how crowded it is as normal meal times.

Food was good, not exceptional ... priced at high moderate end.

Only complaint: House Margaritas were $10.00 ... very expensive, I thought, for relatively small portion ... with lots of ice! Not worth more than $5.00 tops.

A wonderful experience, start to finish. Warmly greeted. Attentive service by "Marco". Delicious and reasonably priced menu. Beer served in an iced glass. And a very enjoyable dessert presentation for our birthday boy! We've been here before and will be back again

P.S. I don't especially enjoy traditional Mexican food, but my guests loved theirs. I found the steak to be a perfect option for me.

We will NEVER spend another penny here, which is unfortunate because we used to enjoy their food. We had a 7pm reservation for 2 through open table this past Saturday night and we were there, I have a bar receipt as proof. They refused to honor our reservation. We got there and hostess said we are really busy probably 10-15 min. The Lady next to us kind of huffed and said yeah, we had one too. We said ok and stood at the bar and ordered a drink each. We noticed her seating multiple people coming in immediately without reservation. We asked about this nicely and she looked down for a full 2 minutes and then just said "my bad". Then she said I guess you could sit here and took us to the booths on the bar side...the first come first serve next to the bar ugly booth area...not even in the main dining room. The hostess had a very non caring attitude and it just didn't feel good and my husband and I don't get sitters very often. We didn't feel like letting them ruin our night, so we settled up at the bar and said, never mind, we wanted to sit at a nice table in the dining room which is why we got a reservation. We just left, didn't make a stink. They never checked in our reservation in open table and when we walked out I received an email from Open table that we didn't show up. I looked it up and when that happens 4 times,
Open Table will cancel your account. Not that we have done it in the past, but still not fair. So disappointed.

Who would have thought to go here for breakfast? Well, because of OpenTable, we found out it was available for breakfast. Just great, perfect coffee (with a hint of cinnamon) and our skillet breakfast meals were very tasty. Staff is so nice and professional, and kept our coffee mugs filled. Really nice surprise for breakfast.

Best tortilla soup anywhere, and I have tried various versions of the soup all over the U. S. While some people may want to go to the new new place, I prefer to go where I know the food will be very good. My NYC daughter who is a foodie had them cater her rehearsal dinner in Chicagoland.

My family (ages 16 to 90) went for an early New Year’s Eve dinner. Fun and relaxed atmosphere, delicious food, generous portions. A little pricier than typical Mexican but worth it.

Great authentic food! However, service was extremely slow considering the place was almost empty at 5pm on Sunday. There were maybe 4 other tables.
I would definately go back again. I have hope for faster service.

Had been meaning to come here for quite awhile. Finally got here and wish we had come sooner. Frozen Mango Margarita was great! Had the garlic red snapper and was probably the best red snapper I ever age. Totally enjoyed it; just sorry I split it with my wife ;-) We also split the duck tacos and they were also very good. Will definitely come back here!
