Tu Casa has been around for, I'm guessing, about 20 years. It's located in the now-trendy in-town Washington Avenue corridor, and was established there at a time when few would venture to this part of the city. It is now surrounded by high-end, pretentious eateries...More

The food is always good here. Very fresh tasting and cooked to order. It takes a little time as it's not a fast food place but is worth the wait. One of our family's favorite place to eat. The prices are very reasonable.

I love dining here, the food is so great. I have been several times and never been disappointed. Only thing is no alcoholic beverages, not a deal breaker for me when the food is this good.
