“Decent Food and Drink”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

While this may not be the best Mexican Food ever, it's a good value. Service is attentive and prompt. Drinks are generous pours. The ambiance is casual, convivial, and perfect for bringing a group of friends or family with children. Maria's is willing to make adjustments for guests with gluten allergies. The bar area was lively but not disturbingly noisy. This is a great place to come to after a visit to the Everglades Wonder Gardens next door. It's very much a slice of Old Bonita, not fancy but enjoyable.

“We love this place”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We spend winters in SW Florida and have driven by this place many times. Finally, about 6 weeks ago, we stopped in for dinner. It was great! It is clean, lots of room and the margaritas and sangria rock! Since our first stop we have been back 3 more times with different sets of friends and they have all loved it.
The food is also really good. I am a big fan of chile rellenos and I think theirs may be the best I have ever had.
Service is good. On a couple of occasions it was s bit slow as they had some big groups come in while we were there. But we will certainly return. Cant wait to go back!!

“Pathetic. ”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

I guess one word could describe this place. Totally over priced plus the food is tasteless. We never got the food we ordered, plus there is a 4$ sharing charge even if you buy 3 entrees for 4 people. Nothing home made or authentic about this place. Avoid!!

“Not worth going to”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I am Mexican & was looking for a good authentic restaurant to take our friends to. Didn't have Corona beer or Jack Daniels at bar. Chips & salsa were bland & stale. Food was less than ok in terms of flavor & service was terrible. Will not return.
