Being from Arizona, it's a risk going for Mexican food in northern Illinois and having high expectations. But Casa Bonita is good. It's a little expensive, but it's not a dive by any means and on the main street of an upscale town, so that's...More

The only thing better than one margarita is two margaritas. Recent trip to Casa Bonita was lovely. The only negative was the guacamole we ordered never made it to the table, but that was fine because the mango margaritas did! They were awesome. As were...More

Ordered the frijhits and thought they were only ok. The steak was not very tender, the meal was not very hot, not cold, just warm. A very noisy resturant.

Casa Bonita was awarded "Best of the Best" for Mexican food by the Daily Herald Reader's Choice 2017. Located in the heart of charming downtown Libertyville, Casa Bonita is known for its vast list of over on tap tequilas and the famous "Perfect Margarita." The year round patio is enjoyed even in the winter where heat lamps allow guests to dine alfresco. Unlike the Mexican restaurant chains, Casa Bonita is an independent restaurant featuring a creative take on finely prepared, authentic Mexican recipes. Providing an array of recipe options, our food is made only with the freshest, quality ingredients selected daily from local purveyors. Everything from appetizers to desserts are handcrafted for a memorable south-of-the-border dining experience.
