We had eaten all the seafood we could stand for a bit, so we were looking for a Mexican restaurant as a change of pace. We found this one on Trip Advisors and it looked good so we stopped. Prices were good. Food was good. The homemade hot sauces (you had to ask for them) were excellent. I had the... More

Family-run business wait staff was very attentive very polite. Straightforward Mexican menu many items to choose from food was well prepared presented nicely and not over seasoned. It's a place I would definitely come back to again

We loved our tacos (carnitas, el pastor, goat, and chorizo). We loved the ceviche. My husband loved that he could request his food without cilantro. We loved everything about this place. There was a bit of a mix up with our order, but it was promptly corrected. Service was outstanding.

This was our second time at this restaurant. The cocktails are great. The food is delicious and high quality: tamale, charbroiled beef, salsa, ..., and pineapple cake with ice cream for dessert. Staff are friendly, and the place is nicely decorated with beautiful Mexican artwork.

Went for dinner and meal was excellent. Staff friendly and helpful. You've got to try the horchata a delicious milky drink and the cheesecake chimichanga - yum.

We used to come to Maria Bonita's several years ago, and actually quit because the food wasn't that great. We decided to give it a try again last night and were pleasantly surprised. They have changed ownership, and the food was quite good. We are vegetarians and so we cannot rate the meat dishes. But we got fajitas, quesadilla, burritos,... More

There aren't many places to have dinner in this area of town. For the second time, I tried this place, and I vow never to return. I paid $9.00 for a lousy shredded iceberg 'taco' salad with a literal handful of 'lettuce', some chewy shredded chicken on the bottom, a 1/2 tablespoon of bland guacamole, 1/2 tablespoon of sour cream,...

Went to this restaurant while staying in Daytona Beach Shores based upon the reviews posted on trip advisor.. The service was good. There weren't many patrons but it was very noisy. Chips and salsa were very good (spicy). I ordered the shrimp garlic mojo which wasn't very good -- the shrimp was very fishy tasting even though it was in... More

I never feel at home here. My wife swore 5 years ago that she would never go in there again and has not. The main problem is anything with chicken. They boil the chicken until no flavor can be found and then shred it and use it in all diskes. Yuk
