I have been waiting a very long time to get authentic delicious Latin food and Orem. Here it is! You drive up to the restaurant and you expect it to be any old Latin restaurant at a strip mall. You walk into the restaurant and the first thing you notice is beautiful artwork at the desk. Then you set down... More

I have been here at least a few times the food is always great. The Mocaheta no idea how to spell it is the best can feed at least two people. The food seams to take a long time. I don't care for me talking before the food comes is part of the fun of eating out. The waitresses are... More

I cannot express in words that are believable how big the portions are here. My tip in ordering is take the number of people going in your group and divide it by two for the number of entrees you need to order. And if you have a light-eater or two in your group, you could realistically third your orders. The... More

This is a very unusual Mexican restaurant. There are very few that have the extensive menu or the portions you'll find here! Try the Octopus Cocktail. It is the size of a meal but intended as an appetizer. You will find yourself taking pictures of the plates when the first come out as proof to your friends that the burrito... More

We LOVE Maria Bonita's and have been going there since 2006. After finding Maria Bonita's, we loved the food so much, we went on the average of 2 or 3 times a week because the food was SO GOOD and authentic Mexican. It is a family business and when we first started going some members of the family were still... More

The food is delicious! The service is awesome. The chicken fajitas are the best. The chips and salsa are so yummy. The homemade quacamole is devine. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant.

Food was awesome, with great sized portions. Our family took more than half of our lunch meals home with us and then skipped dinner we were so full. We ate the leftovers at breakfast. Only drawback, which was not a big deal to me was questionable timeliness of service during their busy lunch period we were there. Seemed like a... More

We found this lovely little restaurant by chance on a road trip from Grand Canyon to Yellowstone. Very good Mexican food - great fajitas, tacos and carnitas. Very friendly, family run place. Waitresses were friendly, funny and helpful. Chips, salsa and soup turned up as a matter of course, which was nice. Portions are large by UK standards - normal... More

We are loyal customers of Maria Bonita. I grew up in Southern California, so I know good Mexican food. Sometimes there is a wait, but it is well worth it. Our favorite is the Enchiladas rancheros - pork enchiladas with great green sauce.

Really don't know how this doesn't have more reviews. The place really does have delicious food. When you take into account the fact that most the entrees can be split into two portions the are so big it's one of the best values you can get. Supreme burrito with carne asada is divine.
