In 1989, Horacio and Isabel Lopez opened Casa Bonita Mexican Restaurant in Waukegan, Illinois. Casa Bonita was labeled “Lake County’s Favorite Mexican Restaurant” after many years of excellent food and service.
In 2009, Casa Bonita relocated to charming downtown Libertyville, Illinois and opened their doors as Casa Bonita Mexican Restaurant & Tequila Bar. We serve tempting food and libations with excellent service, in a vacation-like atmosphere complete with indoor dining and a popular three-seasons outdoor patio. Download our menu!
With the new location in Libertyville, one thing remains the same: finely prepared, authentic Mexican recipes … the very same recipes that have been used over the past 27 years. Our food is made only with the freshest, most high-quality ingredients selected daily from local purveyors. From appetizers to desserts, all are handcrafted for a memorable south-of-the-border dining experience.
We expanded by adding one of the largest tequila bars in the state of Illinois, offering over 150 different types of tequila. We are known for our “Ultimate Margarita” — freshly-squeezed lime juice, 100% blue agave tequila and expert cocktail crafting.
Casa Bonita Mexican Restaurant & Tequila Bar continues to maintain its reputation as “Lake County’s Favorite” Mexican Restaurant & Tequila Bar. You’ll come back over and over for our flavorful authentic Mexican cuisine, superior service, and a great dining experience. From Casa Bonita’s family to yours … BIENVENIDOS!
