We love Maria Bonita

When my wife and I are driving around town discussing where we want to go for dinner, we often fall into the non-decision making mode and can't make up our minds as to where we want to go. The one place that we can always agree on however, is Maria Bonita. This is a nice little Mexican place where... read more

I have eaten at a lot of Mexican restaurants in Utah Valley, desperately searching for quality even remotely resembling that to what I've found in other parts of the Southwest. This place comes pretty close. Prices are good and you get a TON of food. Seriously - if you're on a date, you only need 1 plate of food between... More

They made you feel like home. Their molcajete is really tasty and it can feed two people easily. A great place to eat mexican food.

Great place to eat lunch or dinner. Authentic food served with large portions. Everything I've ordered so far has been great food. Hope to keep trying new items in the future.

We had heard from more than a handful of people that this was a wonderful place to eat. The menu is extensive and the plates of food being served looked amazing. The awesome look didn't match the taste though. We got pretty full on chips and salsa waiting for our food. It was busy (Friday dinner) so we excused the... More

This eatery is a hidden treasure. After high fives from our adorable server, we started in on fresh chips and salsa and admired the curious art on the walls. First time there, I ordered the chicken molé. Not impressed. Second time I ordered the molcajete. A flavorful explosion of steak, amazing shrimp, tasty chicken, melted cheese, onions, etc. simmered in... More

I took a date here for Valentines Day and it was a truly wonderful experience. The waitresses were there to get what we needed quickly despite the insane amounts of people that were there, and they were so polite. There are fun pictures all over the wall and it has a true south american feel inside as far as the... More

We tried this restaurant tonight after reading the majority of reviews saying good things. We ordered fajitas. The portion was nice, except they give you a tiny spoon full of guacamole and sour cream. The meat was flavorless, although the peppers and onions were cooked well. The beans tasted like baby food, no flavor at all! Apparently when we mentioned... More

Don't get me wrong; the food is delicious. However, since I started going here it had declined in unique taste and is more and more like a chain-style food. I only say this since I have had to wait to get extremely fresh tasting food, but nowadays it seems like it comes from a hot lamp and a buffet assembly... More
