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

Go hungry and leave happy! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. This place is the best Mexican Food in Utah County. We frequent this place on a weekly basis. Only problem is that the word is out and they are starting to get busy with longer wait times. Their location does not have great parking but that does not stop us, park in the... More

So we used to come here every now and then, mostly because it wasn't usually busy and there is this great waitress who calls everyone "princess" - but the service was ridiculously slow, and there are better Mexican places in the area, so we stopped going. But last week we decided to give it another shot. And I'm sorry we... More

Stopped in here for lunch on a recommendation and we were very pleased. This is a small mexican restaurant located in a strip mall on 800 N and State Street in Orem. There are plenty of tables inside and they have a couple of tables outside if the weather is good. They have a very large menu and the food... More
