My father and I went to eat at Maria’s last night and have nothing but great things to say! The food is amazing and everything is so fresh. Our waiter, Carlos, was phenomenal. By far the best waiter I have ever had. The manager, Ricky, went to every table asking everyone how everything was and just to talk. It was... More

Sorry to say, the food is not good, but it also isn't bad. 3 out of 4 waitstaff is very friendly, except one. I won't mention his name, but he's not pleasant. His jokes are not funny. Rude. Everyone else is friendly and hospital. The food is average, and the drinks aren't anything to get excited about. My friend likes... More

I can't say enough about Maria's. From the owner, Maria, to the excellent staff, you always feel at home there. The margaritas and food are top notch and the service is warm and friendly. The Chicken Soup is not to be missed, but they don't serve it on the weekend. The spinach quesadillas and Carne Asada are out of this... More

Our family has been coming here for years. The portions are large and include soup or salad. Weekend fish specials are excellent! Great margaritas, especially the watermelon. Sunday's brunch is a great deal!

We sat in the bar side of the restaurant to catch the ballgame. The service was very poor and the food only ok. My husband had the beef tacos ( which he didn't even eat) the meat was not good at all. I had the combo plate ( chicken everything) again only ok. The margarita and watermelon margaritas were both... More

Been here many times through the years, and they have consistently good food. However it is pricey, 13 plus dollars for an enchilada plate that would be 9 dollars elsewhere, at least you get a salad. Some will surely disagree, but I was not here on a date and did not care for the guy with the guitar coming over... More

This is a good new find. The atomasphere is good, the margaritas and food are excellent and the service is warm qnd friendly. I'm all good with the steak tacos and the seafood entry menu is extensive...good find!

Excellent Mexican food in a fun and well decorated location. Great Margaritas and crab quesadillas. Can get busy. Fun place for a group with a nice bar area as well.

Typical Mexican restaurant, all staples of decent quality, extensive cocktail and margarita menu. They are offering take-out but don't always pic up their phone.

The best guacamole in the area. American Mexican. I always get the garlic shrimp with rice and beans. Black bean soup is great, crack a few chips on it. Margaritas are great!
