Plenty of food and tasty margaritas! Great, friendly service from Luis P. It's amazing how much of a difference a smiling server affects our perception of a restaurant. The enchilada suizas were flavorful with plenty of cheese and great texture. All the food was appropriately...More

Lots of menu choices, good service and nice atmosphere make this place comfortable for families or friends to enjoy good food together. Outdoor terrace is a plus in good weather. Quality of food and service are consistent.

Monday’s there were 1/2 price margaritas and they were delicious! The guacamole and salsa were great for appetizers. We shared multiple dishes between the 6 of us. All were very good.

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.
