We love Maria Bonita! The food is fresh, great tasting and fairly priced, the staff is kind and animated, the atmosphere is unpretentious. It is a family favorite. My 10 year old especially LOVES the salmon. I love the grilled veggie burrito. One Burrito Supreme could feed 4.
They have catered some small parties for us as well. Great food for a fun evening.

We went because a friend recommended the restaurant. I was skeptical when I saw the building, but we decided to give it a try and we are glad we did. The first thing I noticed was that the menu was quite extensive. They had more dishes than any other Mexican restaurant I have ever visited. Then I noticed the pricing. The average dish ranged from 7-12.00. That seemed about average. We ordered steak fajitas, chicken quesadillas, chicken flautas, and a shredded beef chimichanga. When the order came, we couldn't help but laugh because the portion size was ridiculously large. Every dish was HUGE. Not one of us at the table was able to finish their meal. I am a big eater, and I ate about half of what was served to me and took the rest home. The food was delicious. Everything tasted and smelled fresh. You could tell that it wasn't your typical prepackaged and reheated food that you get at most places. All I can say is that it was good. I live 30 minutes north of Maria Bonitas, but I will gladly make the trip down there again. It was that good. The only thing I can say that was negative, is that the service was a little slow. They seemed to only have two waitresses working the whole restaurant, so if you are looking for a quick in and out, this isn't the place to go. But if you have a while and want a tasty meal, I recommend dropping by and giving this place a try.
This place has great food, costs a little more than the avg mexican restaurant, but it actually tastes authentic. I'm not pleased with how small the place is since it's pretty crowded on weekend nights and there's nowhere to stand and wait since the restaurant is just a small room. Not knowing whether I should seat myself or wait I stood in the doorway for a few minutes and then sat down on the one bench. Then some other people came in and were helped in front of us. The first time I ate there I got the molcajete and only got the meat. No shrimp or avacados. I should have said something, but I thought maybe they would be mixed in...nope. The guacamole is also very very oniony. bottom line, it's great food, but you never know if you will get great service or crappy service. Go during lunch if you don't want to wait right in front of the door for a while.
