“a bit pricey for Mexican food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

tried it twice..because of the crowds we thought it might be something special. But for me, I like the food and prices at On The Border, better. This place is worth trying at least once.

“It was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nothing to write home about and it was loud. The food was expensive for Mexican and not that great. Probably a good party place. Outside may have been better.

“There are Better Places”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Went once and probably won't return. The taco salad was fine, but over-priced. The relleno was ghastly, and the chips and salsa only so-so. Fairly nice location and atmosphere but run down the street to Tacos El Rey De Oro--about 836 S. Milwaukie in Cambridge Plaza. Better food and prices.

“Overrated Mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Mexican is my favorite food. The salsa here is really bad and the food is very average. Many other Mexican restaurants in the area are much better.

“Mediocre Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This restaurant has a lot going for it. Unfortunately food is not one of those things.

The atmosphere is good, the drinks are good, the wait staff is good, the food is mediocre at best. Places like this give Mexican food a bad name in this country. It is your usual Tex Mex fare with not much creativity or taste. Obviously they consider themselves a bar first and a restaurant second.

However, it is a great place to go for a drink and some appetizers. It has a great location in Libertyville and the dozens of outdoor heaters make it a cozy place to sit outside on a cool night (though not in a Chicago winter).

So, go have a drink and some nachos, relax and enjoy. Just don't hungry because the food is not worth it.
