Su Casa Grande

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Good Authentic Mexican Cuisine in the Suburbs"

Su Casa Grande Photo, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
Quote:
Whenever we want Mexican food but don't want to head into the city, we have always enjoyed Su Casa Grande in Menomonee Falls. Our most recent visit was once again very good.They have a thriving business as evidenced by the fact that a few years ago they moved into a larger building and even still, there can be a waiting list on the weekends. Since we had plenty of time, we took a seat at the bar for an adult beverage while we waited for a table for dinner. The wait wasn't that long, about 15 or 20 minutes. During that time, we enjoyed watching some college football on the TV while imbibing on frozen strawberry margaritas. Yummy good with chips and salsa.With a table ready ...Read More

Social media is a wonderful thing. Had it not been for Facebook, I would not even know about "Milwaukee’s Best Burgers" served at Sobelmans Pub & Grill. I have a couple of friends who have "liked" Sobelmans and seen photos of their "Bloody Masterpiece." Quoting from their web site "The Bloody Masterpiece features 13 garnishes: Brussel sprout, Celery, Onion, Mushroom, Cherry tomato, Lemon, Pickle, Shrimp, Sausage, Cheese, Olive, Green Onion & Asparagus AND the Bacon Cheeseburger slider!"For our midweek dinner visit, it would be an appetizer of wonton wrapped mozzarella sticks, burgers and a pint of beer from Milwaukee’s Lakefront Brewery. I had the Cali Burger which was basicall...Read More

Restaurant | "Enjoy Their Pie . . . Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner"

Quote:
Bakers Square is a regional chain located in the upper Midwest (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio). Here in the Milwaukee area, we have four locations (Greendale, Elm Grove/Brookfield, Shorewood and West Allis). Surprisingly, there are no others in Wisconsin, however.Bakers Square is a mix of diner and bakery, which is frankly challenging in a community where Greek diners are in every community and thriving with great food at exceptional prices. I believe that Bakers Square as an edge, however, when it comes to the bakery side of their business . . . and especially with their outstanding pies.Our most recent visit to Bakers Square was on the morning th...Read More

China Inn Restaurant

Restaurant | "Authentic Chinese Restaurant"

China Inn Restaurant Photo, Hales Corners, Wisconsin
Quote:
I have been dining at China Inn ever since I moved to Milwaukee nearly 20 years ago. Located less than a couple of miles from where I first lived in Wisconsin, it was the neighborhood convenience that first brought me through their doors. Today living nearly 20 miles away, I return there not because it is convenient, but because it's the best.With outstanding food, a varied menu and a decent value, they did not disappoint. We started with appetizers of fried wontons and egg rolls. These are hand made daily and taste very fresh. While fried, they were not greasy. They crunched when you bit into them, and were full of flavor. David likes the hot mustard, while I enjoy the sweet sauce....Read More

Restaurant | "Nice Birthday Ambiance"

Often when it's time to celebrate a special occasion, we head south into the city but for David's birthday we opted to head in the opposite direction about 15 miles to West Bend, Wisconsin in Washington, County. We had learned of the opening of this new restaurant through the monthly "Val-Pack" coupon mailer, and given their birthday dinner special of a half priced entree plus a free dessert, they certainly caught our attention!Their posted hours for dinner was 4:30p - 10:00p so you can imagine our concern when we pulled into the parking lot at 6:15p and there was just one car and a motorcycle in front of the restaurant. We entered and were immediately seated with another couple who was ...Read More
