Always fresh and yummy. Simple food, but wonderfully done. Their green sauce is especially good, and love the wet burrito.

Great place for a quick bite. We stopped by a couple of times for an afternoon snack. We tried the Taquitos, Chile Rellanos and Enchiladas. All were excellent. And the Mexican beer was cheap so my husband was happy. Also saw lots of take-out orders...More

I haven't eaten here in a couple of years. Was on Alberta and decided to stop in. I can't believe I haven't been eating here. Yummy vegan options. I like the simple side of beans and rice, corn tortillas, and large guacamole. I'm going back...More

This is real home-made mexican food. Vegetarian options available too. Large portions and very reasonable prices. My favorite is the cheese enchilada platter - ask for both green and red sauce! My roommate's fav is the garden veggie taco platter.

We had 3 different types of meat between 2 tacos and a burrito - none had any flavor at all. It wasn't bad like you couldn't eat it - there was just no flavor. The hot sauce joined the club - the red was just...More

The title sounds like I'm a booze hound, and I've enjoyed my share, but the food at La Bonita works well for everybody. I'm a fan of their red chilaquiles, and they provide with healthy portions and great flavor. It's not a fancy joint, but...More

The reviews of this place are mixed and that's my feeling as well. I've been here three times and the food is consistently, well, consistent -- and average. Nothing "pops" and I agree with one fellow reviewer that the meat portions in the meals are...More
