La Casa de Isaac - Highwood

Sunday nights are good for casual, friendly family dinners. Last weekend Erica and I met friends Joel and Stephie up near their suburban hood of Highwood. The destination was mexican neighborhood restaurant La Cassa de Isaac. The place was packed and busy all night long, though some might not like having tables so close that I could have tasted the taco next door easier than Stephie's sitting across from me. La Cassa definitely has an authentic feel and it adds charm with a huge blackboard featuring daily specials hanging over the grill.

We kept things simple and ordered a pitcher of sangria for the table and a large bowl of guacamole. Both went fast. The food took slightly longer than expected but it didn't matter as the chips kept flowing alongside the drinks. Erica ordered the enchiladas and I went with a blackboard special of steak fajitas. The steak was great with the melted cheese on top and sides of beans and rice. I don't usually need tortillas with my fajitas and I was thrilled when they asked if I wanted any and I could just say no. Erica's enchiladas were equally tasty and we sent back clean plates. 

La Casa de Isaac is a great option for the locals. It was worth trip to hang out with friends and eat tasty Mexican. Solid choice.
