This is a little bit of a drive for me but so worth it. It is by far my favorite Mexican place around. The margaritas are delicious. I have also had their red sangria which was pretty good. Every time I go I get the fundido chihuahua (a taco shell with melted cheese in the middle) it is to die... More

The service, atmosphere and prices are excellent. There is a good variety of dishes and drinks which we enjoyed with a group of friends. The food is good but lacks some flavor, a little too bland for my taste but portions are good and the value is excellent.

It is a popular Mexican Restaurant, but I mostly go because my wife likes it. I think she prefers the Margaritas over the food. Has a very good black bean soap.

Rosemont is where the convention centre is, but it's way closer to O'Hare Airport than it is to downtown Chicago. So any place that serves up good food around there is likely to get its fair share of business from convention goers. And so it is with Maria's. We got there a little late, and ended up waiting an hour... More

I love to eat at this family restaurant. The Cochinita pibil is amazing (and hard to find at most Mexican restaurants). This place is worth making a trip.

We had a great dinner, meeting our nephew and his wife. It was quiet enough so we could have a nice visit. The food, drinks, service, and atmosphere were all great.
