Sit on the patio, or inside at one of the cozy bar-adjacent booths. Have a signature margarita. Splurge and get a pitcher. The food will be coming right up and it's all good. For ambiance and cuisine, Maria's is second to none. Outdoor heaters really work too. Right in the center of town and convenient to everything. Friendly servers top... More

The chicken fajitas were the best fajitias I've ever had. Service was so so, quite slow. Drinks and food were all great, great environment out on the patio for a nice brunch or lunch.

We live in Texas and enjoy trying different margaritas. The two we had here worst ever! No flavor. Very good salsa with chips. I gave it 3 stars because food and service were good.

The salsa was delicious - fresh and homemade. I had the shrimp tacos which were pretty good. Margarita also decent.

Good food, they were quite busy after we sat so our order got a bit jumbled up but the food made up for their error. Churros and ice cream topped it off well

We waited over 45 for our food. When it arrived, it was at best mediocre. I had to send back the chicken. Maybe the holiday season got the best of them, but this place was a disappointment.
