We love Maria's Mexican Pueblo. The food is excellent and the staff friendly. I've been to alot of Mexican resturants, but you cannot beat this one for the value and service you get. Keep up the good work.

Food is "fair" at best. Find another place. The authenticity of the food is just not there. Go to the Mexican restaurant at the Food Lion shopping center instead.

Went by on Wednesday as usual and was greeted by a sign saying that Maria was only catering. Maria's Mexican Pueblo was sadly closed. We will miss eating Mexican food in Western North Carolina,

Maria's is awesome! She has the best salsa I have ever eaten. When I mentioned this to her, she only says that it's because of the fresh ingredients. Of course, her own recipe has something to do with it I'm sure. We've tried the other...More

Found this place through a Groupon and continue to go back because the food is fresh and good. It's off the beaten path, but worth looking for.

All I can figure is that this place is never standing room only because it's on a side street. We go here every year for at least one meal and have been doing so for many years. The owner, I assume Maria, is always there...More
