Nasty. ..

So far this place has the WORST mexican food I've ever try. Never going back again. Food tasted reheated, friendly staff but horrible food. They spend too much money remodeling that they can't afford a good chef. I don't recommend anybody this restaurant I rather go to taco bell

Food is wonderful, service fast and friendly. Took two people with me who had not tried mole sauce and they are forever ruined by how good it is here. Love their 'ritas too. they taste very fresh and not full of bar mix.

We stopped, on a whim, headed back to NSB. Cuban food was excellent - had the pork, and the fried plantains were some of the best we've ever enjoyed! Fresh salsa with chips was excellent!

They have great food when the owner is in. You get large amounts of food for the money, but if the owner is no working, the taste is not the same. Last night we went over for dinner, it took a long time for the waiter to come take our order, when the food arrived some dinner were cold and... More

If great mexican food at a good price, Maria Bonita is the place to go. Extensive menu and drink specials make this a great place for dinner. We go there every time we are in Daytona Beach and are never disappointed.

I have been here a number of different times and I absolutely love this place! The food is excellent, you will not be disappointed! I live about 40 minutes west of this location and I try to go at least once a month. It's just that great! They give you chips and salsa that are the best I've ever had.... More
