Went for weekend brunch. Staff & Owner very friendly & attentive. Really spicy Bloody Marys. Both items we ordered were scrumptious.

The staff at Maracas are always very welcoming, friendly and efficient. The food is delicious: the fajitas for two; chicken poblano; main street special; Mexican lasagna, etc all are very good. Half Price Tuesday is always fun and a good deal. Brunch on Sunday is great. Angel and Jose are always friendly and helpful, as is Robert and the others

This is our go to place for Mexican! This is true Mexican Cuisine so it is not as spicy as Tex-Mex. The kitchen is willing to customize orders within reason. Wednesdays are a great night as they have $1 margaritas with the purchase of an entree. Sunday Brunch is another good day as they offer $1 Mimosas. The location in... More

Our server was great and they have unusual items on their menu. Anything with chicken is better than the beef but really we didn't have anything bad. Highly recommend!!

We ate here for lunch, I had the lunch special which was one cheese taco, one beef enchilada and one beef hardshell taco. It did not include rice or beans. It took a while before our table was brought chips but no salsa was brought. We asked out waiter and it was promptly brought. The chips are multigrain...which actually weren't... More

Great location in Deep Ellum. Service was excellent. Food was above average, but not outstanding. White queso was good, but not better than other restaurants-$6 for a small cup was way over-priced. Chili relleno was good but a little bland (just chicken and cheese inside the pepper); chicken enchiladas were good-the chipotle sauce was tasty but a little greasy. Nice... More

Ok y'all .... This is THE place for lunch. $6 plates? Are you kidding me? Great decorations, great ambience and I assume off the hook tequila drinks. The Mexican Lasagna is the plate... Oh my! You will not be doing anything wrong by coming here. Two thumbs up.

This is a cute looking place and from the outside looks amazing. We arrived to a private party at 9:30pm and the kitchen was already closed. They had only 1 bartender. He was not happy and kind of rude. The menu said $3.50 for margaritas, but he repeatedly insisted they were $5. We were willing to give them a chance,... More

My friends and I luckily found this place online and decided to have Saturday brunch there. Best decision we made! I'm all for $1 mimosas and chips and queso! The food was great, the wait staff was so nice, and you can't beat low-priced drinks! The location is perfect I think, and the fact that they have latin music playing... More
