I quite like MB because it is close to TexMex. The food today was plenteous and delicious as expected. Service was kind and courteous. But delivery was 10 minutes for the first dish. Another 15 minutes for the second person. And for me the bill payer another 29 minutes and then only when I asked if I would be served.... More

Maria's has gotten very popular. We waited an hour outside on a busy Saturday night. It was worth the wait as it is likely the best Mexican restaurant in the area. The chips and salsa were good and plentiful. Numerous drink options. Alcoholic and lemonade choices were well done. Each person enjoyed their orders. Burritos were huge and could b... More

We went to the Maria Bonita Mexican Restaurant after receiving a positive review from a friend. We were told that wait time was about 20 minutes. We noticed after waiting that other patrons were being seated that came in after us. Upon inquiring, we were told that we had deleted our name from the waiting list. We weren't sure how... More

We're from Salt Lake but any time we come to Utah County we come here! We love the halibut tacos and sometimes come down just to get them.

My husband and I went for dinner last night (we go here a few times a year). They are traditionally quite busy but we got there ahead of the dinner crowd and were seated quickly. I appreciated that they brought out large glasses of water and another container of water to fill from. (I hate sitting there needing a drink... More

The food makes up for any shortcomings you might experience in the waiting process for a table because it is so popular! The staff is so friendly (hugs from our server!) and attentive, it almost feels like a home cooked meal at Abuelas! The portions are filling. We ordered a lemonade and it came out in a giant cup that... More

Came in for a late lunch. Had the carnita tacos. Delish! Too big to finish. Loved the salsa. Son had the chicken Poblano and it was really good.

I've gone here on and off again for the past four years. I went a couple weeks ago with my wife and mother. We kept remarking to each other how much we liked the atmosphere, how great the food was (and how large the portions were). I really like that I could order ala carte from the menu (I wasn't...

I am always looking for good Mexican food and Maria Bonita was a delightful experience. The food was delicious and a great value for what you receive. The best part was the service. Highly recommended.

The food here is great. Pretty tasty, and with lots of options. The service has never been that great. They're always nice and everything, but, just not super on top of things like drinks, etc... Also, one thing that was a big ding was that they charge $2.50 if you want more chips and salsa after your first round. This... More
