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

When my wife, who is Brazilian, wants a good Mexican Food dining out experience, our choice more often than not is Maria Bonita in Orem, UT, close to our home. The service is good, the prices are popularly modest, and the food has never disappointed. I can't say there is anything stunning or extraordinary about the food or the ambiance.... More

We have been going to Maria Bonita for many, many years. The cute little server, Maria, is the best. The food is amazing! We love the mocajete! I tried a chimichanga last night and loved it as well. Chips and salsa are wonderful too!

My sales team and I ate at Maria Bonita for lunch on December 23, a super busy pre-Christmas day. The restaurant was packed and the waiting area truly is too small as this restaurant draws a crowd, however, the host and server were super friendly and joked with everyone to ease the lunch/Christmas rush tension. We waited about 15 minutes... More

Been twice now and both times waited forever to get my food. Tonight we waited over an hour. We just about left. Don't know if I'll go back. Food is good but service is lacking. They also need a better waiting area.

I was visiting family and we decided to go for Mexican. Maria Bonita was highly rated so we decided to try it out. We beat the dinner rush because people were lined up outside the door on a Saturday evening. We really enjoyed the complimentary chips and salsa. Service was good and we each received a hug with our order.... More
