I recently went here on a Sunday afternoon around 2pm. They were a little busy but there were plenty of tables that were empty and plenty of servers around. It took about 10 minutes for a waitress to come and take our drink order and...More

Met my lunch buddy there today. WOW, what an enjoyable experience. Superb service, friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. However, the food was the star of the show. We split Al Pastor tacos - and a beef burrito. Oh, did I mention that the chips...More

They overcharged my credit card (by over $100) and when I asked them to correct.... silence. So I had to go to Visa to get corrected. Otherwise, okay TexMex food

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

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.
