Bonito Michoacan Mexican Restaurant

location: 3715 S Decatur Blvd  Las Vegas, NV 89103

phone: (702) 257-6810

This is my alllll time favorite mexican restaurant… HANDS DOWN.  Home cooked food, Large portions, Great people, Great margaritas, Friendly waiters, warm atmosphere, Just plain fun. Everytime I go to Las Vegas I get off the plane and head to Bonito Michoacan. If I have a business meeting, I bring my clients there, especially middle of the afternoon. What a great way to have meetings over chips, salsa and bean dip, with a margarita here and there..LOL

I highly recommend this restaurant. It’s off the strip, but not too far. I always invite all my local friends when i’m in town to meet there and they all agree. The food is just plain delicious… 5 STARS    There is Nothing on the Menu that isn’t excellent…NOTHING…  Did I say I love this place…   LOL

Update.. For the “”BEST”" service go to the back room and tell ‘VIOLETA’  you read it on Food Snobs that this was THE BEST room with the Best service ….!!!!!  Violeta takes extremely good care of you.

We have been to many Brazilian steak houses and this was the first time at Texas de Brazil. It was a Thursday night in Las Vegas and a Birthday weekend. there were 4 of us, 2 of which had never experienced a Brazilian Steak house. We had a 30 min wait so we went to the bar for drinks.  When seated the Hostess explained the little red and green buttons. We headed over to the salad bar which was extensive and a complete meal in itself. The Asparagus was superbly steamed, the salads Crisp and delicious. They had a huge round of Parmigiano cheese that was buttery rich tasting, hummmmm just like the kind i get in Italy.  I had brought my own Bottle of Silver Oak 2005, so the waiter corked it and served us all a glass. We toasted a fun evening with friends in Las Vegas. It’s Now time to Turn over that GREEN button to bring on the meat.  The gauchos started swarming our table with roasted meats, chicken, sausage, bacon wrapped  filet mignon, pork chops, lamp chops, and numerous others. The fire roasted, smokey flavor just made your mouth water. The meat was so tender and delicious. we finally had to turn over our buttons to red to slow down and enjoy all the flavors.   We added in some dessert with a Creme’ Brulee.  All in all 4 stars.  Fogo de Chao is still my favorite, But this was a VERY pleasant experience and i will be back and refer it to everyone.

It was late and we got to the Hotel at 9:10pm and the Radison hotel clerk Suggested “Castillos” as a good Local favorite. They stay open till 10PM and wasn’t far so we headed down there.  It was your typical Good ole Home cooking. The Chips were fresh, crisp and the salsa tasty. The food was delivered hot, delicious and the service was Great. There were 10 people in the restaurant on a Wednesday at 9:30pm, as we ate more kept coming in. We had Chili Rellenos, chicken enchiladas, carni asada burritos, Chicken taco’s, cheese enchiladas, beans & rice. Everyone ask for something added special for a custom order. Our Waitress was humorous and good hearted and took the order and delivered it just as ordered.  Only issue was they DON’T have Liquor so no Margaritas, But have Lots of cold Beer.  We give the food 4 stars. The Flan we had for dessert, was a Little Bland.. 2.5 stars..LOL
