Description: 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.

I'm a true hater of Mexican food. I can here and ordered their special and it became the best Mexican food I've ever tasted. It was the only place that I actually finished the food. People say this place is bad but they must not like good food.

I had been looking forward to eating at Casa Bonita’s since they had opened. We got there and there were maybe four or five other tables (booths) that were seated. We were sat right away, next to the door and right behind the host stand. Because the restaurant was so slow, the whole experience was kind of awkward. The host was standing behind our booth the entire time and so close we couldn’t enjoy our conversation without feeling intruded. The other waitresses were all standing around together, looking bored and staring in the direction of where everyone was eating. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was average and we just weren’t impressed. There are plenty of authentic Mexican restaurants in Lake County and unfortunately Casa Bonita is not one of them.

Had a great yesterday at Casa Bonita. We were celebrating my husband's 65th birthday with family including two small children (3 1/2 & 18mos.). The staff was so accommodating. The food was top notch Mexican food. Delicious guacamole and quesadillas for appetizers, Everyone's entree was terrific, and they took such great care of the small kids, even though there was a little spilled milk! They let us bring in a birthday cake and were very nice about getting us plates and utensils for the cake. Our server was there whenever we needed her, but not intrusive. Must try the Camarones Acapulco. We have been to this restaurant a number of times, but had to comment on this trip because it was so exceptional.

I know, chicken soup at a mexican restaurant? But it's so delicious!! This place has a great atmosphere, the whole neighborhood does really. Check this place out the first Friday of every month it's awesome! Karaoke & a family atmosphere, which I didn't expect
