Seems like they closed as noone was there. Very sad, I loved the ropa vieja. The service wasn't the best but the food was worth it.

My experience was a wonderful one. The service was prompt and the waitress was very nice. The food was brought out and delivered in a timely manner, tasted very fresh and the chips were bottomless (as well as delicious). The Margaritas were also very well made, just strong enough to give you a decent buzz without making you want a glass of water immediately. All in all, great resturaunt.

AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL!! This was a total waste of money. Went to this place with my entire family. First off the place they sat us the waitress didn't want to take us b/c she tried to get moved to another section twice. After she couldn't get us moved the experience went downhill from there and fast. She had a real attitude problem. Asked for kids menu's 3 times. Finally after I asked her for them the third time (when she was asking for our order) she slammed a little plastic holder with the kids menu down in front of me. The service just gets worse from there.... I was hoping the food would make up for the service but the food was awful as well. My kids will eat ANYTHING that is junk food and they wouldn't even touch their food. I took 2 bites and it was so nasty I couldn't eat anymore. Even my husband who goes with the flow didn't like his meal. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. Total waste of money and time!

ROACHES!!! When the waitress brought out our chips and salsa a cockroach crawled out of our salsa bowl. My husband and I were disgusted. He killed it with a napkin and showed the waitress. She shrugged as if this happens often and took the roach to the kitchen. they told us we could leave without paying for our 2 drinks. the manager didn't even bother to come talk to us. Oh, and this was yesterday which happened to be Valentines day! It put a bad taste in our mouth the rest of the evening.

My husband and I drove by Maria Bonita a few days ago and it has been closed down, there is a sign out front that says the property is for sale. SO sad! We loved this place! I agree it had gone down hill quite a bit over the years, but I'm still sad to see it close.

I just love this place Mainly when a guy named Enrique takes care of us I been there a lot of times but every time he serves us is a very pleasant feeling very attentive and nice, food is very good an when your weitress is nice food taste better. Great job Enrique saw a sign about tip I agree about giving 15% or more but that's only if the server deserves it.

Absolutely the worst service I have ever experienced. The food tasted okay, but it took forever to get it and we rarely saw our server despite the fact that hardly anyone was there. After we ate and got our checks nearly two hours later, immediately after I put my card in the check book, I felt the sense of urgency. I ran to the bathroom and was instantly sick. I normally have a very strong stomach, so this was quite out of the ordinary. I decided to complain and since they had already ran my card, I expected a refund at the least. WRONG. Our waitress said she was going to talk to management and returned very quickly and let me know there was nothing they could do because other people ordered the same thing as me and they didn't have any problems. So, I asked to speak directly to the manager. A woman came out and said she was the head waitress of the night. Being in customer service myself, I was very polite when I explained what happened. She however, was not polite back. She told me that there was nothing wrong with their food and that I must just have a weak stomach since no one else got sick from it. I asked her if I could at least get a refund for the entree, and she said "No. Theres nothing wrong with our food." I told her "You're probably right, I probably didn't get sick." and left. One of my friends stayed behind and tried to reason with them, even got the manager on the phone and tried to get me a refund since the food clearly made me sick. They told me there was nothing they could do for me since no one else got sick. I submitted a complaint to the Florida Department of Health because this was just too ridiculous. NEVER EVER EAT HERE!!! unless you like paying to spend the night in the bathroom.

Came here today and as soon as we entered we were greeted so delightfully and seated right away. The server came instantly and served us chips and a delish salsa. I had the churassco steak and I ordered it medium. It came back rare. However, the server was so nice she took it back and cooked it more. Really like this place and the atomosphere. Deff a must try. :)
