I wasn't overly impressed. The food was acceptable, but absolutely nothing to rave about. I got the mole enchiladas...my standard. Doesn't come close to Red Iguana's. Even Mi Ranchito, which I barely rate as real Mexican food, has better mole. Getting seated was a nightmare and the seats themselves were like hammocks--super uncomfortable. The service was quick, despite being a... More

When the four of us showed up the waitress tried to seat us at a table for 3 and when I said that was unacceptable she rolled her eyes at me but sat us at a table for 3. Her service did not get any better. She never ask for our drink order she came to our table and asked,"do... More

Small restaurant, somewhat slow, worth the wait in terms of taste and portion size, and selection. Creamy horchata. I liked the chili relleno, cheese enchilada combination. It was $85 for five adults and four children.

From the outside this place doesn't look like much but walk through the front doors and the yummy aroma of Mexican food hits you. This is a clean place. A little crowed but worth it. The service and staff are awesome. Oh and the food is so good. You get the typical chips and salsa when you sit down. The... More

We loved the salsa! It was very chunky with lots of tomatoes! I got a beef giant quesadilla & they weren't living! It was giant! And it tasted very good! My husband got the lobster Quesidilla and said it was also very good! The service was excellent, our water was always filled & we always had chips & salsa!

I tried Maria Bonita for the first time last week and enjoyed my lunch. The food was good, they have a wide variety of items on their menu, the chips and salsa were delicious. Don't go here if you are looking for a good restaurant to visit with friends or colleagues though as the dining room is extremely noisy.

Took our family of 9 for dinner there- everyone loved their meals and came away stuffed to the brim- with leftovers! We came on Tuesday evening and hardly had to wait- The staff was personable, the owner busy helping, mingling and making sure everyone happy! The food was awesome! Definitely recommend! Great value, great food!

I went here for lunch with a friend. I'd never been before. Orem has so many Mexican restaurants, so I figured this would be like all the rest. I ordered a chicken chimichanga, and it was so delicious! The tortilla was crisp like it should be but so often isn't at other restaurants. The chimi was filled with lots of... More
