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 love this place. Great food, meal comes warm, some places they bring your food and it's chilled already. The place is clean even in the winter, the floor is clean. Can't stand eatery where it is okay to have dirty floor.

Restaurant row in downtown Libertyville adds more variety with the addition of Casa Bonita , a lively Mexican restaurant serving very good basic Mexican food. My wife and I went there Saturday night and waited about a half an hour at the bar until we were seated. We enjoyed the tasty margaritas rimmed with more sugar than salt. The guacamole was excellent accompanied by both traditional chips and the regular kind served with salsa dip. The fish tacos we're very good tending to be mild in flavor emphasizing the fish instead of other accompaniments. The chicken and beef tacos which my wife had were also very good, the chicken being tender and the ground beef flavorful but not too spicy.
Overall, this place offers lively ambiance and very good food making it worth a Saturday night visit.

My sister and I were charmed by the historic character of the main street of Libertyville while staying at the Hampton Inn for a family wedding. We were directed to Libertyville by the hotel and stopped at Casa Bonita which appeared to be the main restaurant open on a Sunday evening. We both loved the food and service, but did not sample the large supply of tequilas. We will have to visit this suburb of Chicago which has grown on the bones of a 19th century village again.

I've eaten here many times. The food is good, but nothing really special. The margaritas are good. They have outdoor seating which is really nice when the weather is good, but it's rather noisy because it's on the main street through Libertyville. Still, it's a great place for a drink and appetizers on a warm evening. They have a decent lunch menu, too. It's popular and you'll have to wait for a table on the weekends.
