This Mexican food restaurant and bar is small and cozy. Seems to me to be of an atmosphere more like a bar than a restaurant. Close to the gate of USMA. Really good Mexican food. The margarita was good. Service was exceptional. I would dine here again.

After much research decided to come here while visiting West Point for the weekend... so glad we did. Love the atmosphere and the caring attitude of the owners... you get the feeling that you are at their home. Was a quick 3 minute walk across the street from our hotel. I made reservations (do that during busy times) as the... More

We went here after taking a tour of West Point and before the West Point concert. None of us are crazy about Mexican food but there are very few choices of casual sit-down restaurants near West Point with good food. And four of the nearby restaurants are Mexican. We chose Maria Bonita because it was rated the best of the... More

After a day of touring the local sites, we needed a place to sit for food and a beer...we were lucky to stumble upon this colorful little place on Main Street. Great guacamole, cold beers, crunchy chips, and FRESH salsa were a perfect addition to the day. The owner/manager (I'm sorry I didn't catch her name) was wonderful and friendly...stop... More

It can be a struggle to find a nice meal in Highland Falls but we have found Maria Bonita to be one of the better options. The restaurant is quaint and provides a homey feel. It seems more authentic (in decor, menu and taste) than your typical Mexican restaurant. The owners are very pleasant. We have been four or five... More

Small and intimate restaurant located in the heart of Highland Falls proper. Food is made fresh to order and although this menu mimics many others in this category (i.e. Combo number one: enchilada, burrito, and taco), it is just a little bit more fresh and tasty than most of the others I have seen. I like the touch of putting... More

Decent Mexican food, the nachos were very Americanized and loaded with cheese but the red sauce for the enchiladas was excellent and definitely homemade.

This restaurant is close to the Applacian Trail where we met our hiking daughter & son-in-law. We Really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere & delicious food. This is not fast-food it is authentic, good Mexican dishes. We all chose different entrees & everyone was happy. I especially enjoyed the chicken mole & my husband loved the enchiladas with beef & chicken.... More
