I was visiting for business and was craving a great Mexican restaurant. I read reviews and decided Ina different restaurant. The hotel shuttle driver told me there was a much better Mexican restaurant. So I took the locals opinion and tried Maria’s. From the start...More

Oh my goodness! Have not been to Maria’s for several years and used to truly enjoy the experience. However, today was MUCH different. Service was good but the food was HORRIBLE! (We visited in the middle of the afternoon...). Orders were prepared incorrectly, sent back...quesadillas...More

This restaurant is located downtown. The restaurant smells nice. Even the bathroom. I ordered the Spinach and Portabelo Enchiladas. It did not disappoint. The service was fast and friendly. The food is reasonably priced.

Great food and outstanding service, even with a busy Parents weekend at Missouri State. Waitress was pleasant, efficient and timely. Never ran out of drinks and food was great.

Came here for the first time and was happy with food and service. Nothing special but nice place. We recommend if looking for something not to expense downtown.

I ate lunch here yesterday with a colleague and probably had the best service I've had anywhere that time of day. I didn't know the burrito would have green peppers I side but I scraped them aside. I'm sure this would be a great place...More

I like maria's but its not remotely authentic. They serve excellent american style mexican food. The guac is good as are the fried tacos. Get your burrito downtown style for sure. Not the best place for kids though as their kids menu is lacking.
