The motto 'Mi Casa, Su Casa' is on a wood shingle behind the bar, and when San Antonio native Ike Sewell -- founder of Chicago's Pizzeria Uno and acclaimed inventor of deep-dish pizza -- opened Su Casa in 1963, south-of-the-border hospitality was his intent. Su Casa has all the traditional dishes as well as Mexican decor galore: pinatas, statues, religious icons and paintings, faux balconies and doorways and hanging baskets of colorful flowers.

A small bar with booths separates two dining rooms, a smaller room with five-table set-up that is used for parties. The back bar is laid with varied tile fragments and colored pebbles and decorated with bowls and symbolic artifacts. Local businesspersons and residents -- and occasionally Florence Sewell (Ike's widow celebrated her 94th birthday here June 4, 1996) have been the staple of this casual eatery.
