The Mexican woman has created the variety and the infinite richness of the history of our cuisine. Likewise, it has been mainly the women who have maintained the tradition, techniques, characteristics and ingredients exclusively from Mexico. During the 19th Century, Mexican women played a profound role in domestic life. To be a good woman in Mexico means to have a profound knowledge and great skill in preparing the cuisine. Undoubtedly an important part of Mexican culture is its varied cuisine. When Christopher Columbus started his search for valuable species in 1942, instead of arriving in India, he found America, Sparkling off the conquest of countries which like Mexico, opened the world to new culinary horizons with its universal donation of vanilla, avocado, corn, tomato and chocolate, among others. In Mexico there are great regions which have their own gastronomic art. Due to their variety and deliciousness, the cuisine of Puebla,Oaxaca and Yucatan stand out, however one must not forget the recipes from Bajio or the cuisine of the border states. Mexican food is popular throughout the world. With its variety of indigenous civilizations, each region in Mexico is marked by a distinct aroma, taste and texture. Love of Mexican food shows an appreciation not only for the constant process of search and discovery of the right combination of the ingredients, but for the great Mexican imagination.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Love Maria Bonita's margaritas! They're the best in town. Sep 14, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by We were stuck in the middle of the restaurant under the stairs when there were open tables along the wall ways from the kitchen. Very loud. The attention by the wait staff was poor. Apr 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Since we do eat at Maria's often (close to our house), it would be nice to update the menu on occasion (although you have quite a variety). My husband loves spicy, but my stomach can't take hot spice, so it would be nice to have more mild selections. Also PLEASE keep the Tres Leche is stock - YUM! It was not served for awhile, last fall and we actually stopped going to the restaurant. Glad it's back. Feb 4, 2015
