Octopus Cocktail? Oh yeah!

Marie Bonita has one of the most diverse menus of any Mexican food restaurant. From their octopus cocktail to the over sized portions on regular entrees they will have things you have never tried before.

We've visited this restaurant several times over the years, but this visit was unique. There were more patrons, and a line to get in, which probably caused service to be somewhat less than optimal. The menu selection was large and varied. One problem was that our meals were not served at the same time, which makes for an awkward dining... More

The portions are very large, almost too large, the taco's were mostly lettuce. The chips and salsa was good, but we had to ask them to bring them to us. I probably will not go back.

We ate at Maria Bonita tonight and two of our group had Chicken Chimichangas. The oil they were fried in was rancid and when we pointed it out they didn't believe us and did nothing about it. The other food we had was ok, but based on the service we will not be back.

Great food and excellent service. Large portions. Many non-traditional selections. We have eaten at many Mexican restaurants and would definitely recommend this one.

We were looking for an authentic and fresh Mexican restaurant and got precisely what we wanted! This place serves very generous portions and delicious food. The prices were very reasonable. For three people we ate for $31.00 and all had boxes full of leftovers. True to prior reviews on TripAdvisor, we got to meet Maria herself as she strolled through... More

This place is the best if you're feeling like good Mexican food. Huge portions, rich flavors. The piña colada in the pineapple is to die for. I do wish the menu was less complex, there's too much to choose from!

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
