I live in the Philly/NYC area. It is incredibly hard to find authentic Mexican food here. So, I always try to have it at least once whenever I travel south or west. Maria Bonita did not disappoint. The food is excellent. The service is great, very friendly. There are some places in Daytona that are entirely too touristy. This is... More

Came here with my wife for lunch. Very large menu, so my wife got a chicken bowl and I got Lengua tacos. Neither were spectacular, but both were good. Very affordable with friendly service.

Fresh mexican food cooked to perfection. All good on the menu and friendly service. Steak and shrimp delicious. Try Horchata for a very different drink.

Everything was very good. They brought some things out wrong like hard tacos instead of soft, on the rocks instead of frozen but nothing major still very delicious.

Read the reviews and were excited to eat here. Food is average Mexican food at best. Wouldn't say authentic food. Service was average. Nothing to rave about.

This was a spur of the moment decision. It was around 6:30pm so when we walked in it was dimly lit and the first thing you see is the bar. My wife and I stood at the front door for several minutes before being noticed and seated. There was a decent crowd in the place but not over run or... More

We've lived here in South Daytona for a while and had promised ourselves to stop in and check it out. We were quickly seated. We asked for water with lemon, which was brought to the table with chips and salsa. I had the Pollo (Chicken)nMargarita, which came with lettuce, chopped tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream and three tortillas. My wife had... More
