Maria's is a great place for mexican food, right here intown. Nicely decorated place. Friendly servers and staff. My waiter was Dominic and he was helpful, friendly and enthusiastic. The salsa and chips are excellent. My meal that evening was a monday night enchilada special....Two rolled beef enchiladas with rice and beans. Very very good. They have a great expansive menu and every thing I've tried is just as good. Go to Maria's and see Dominic for great service.More

This is a good restaurant. I am sure the food is OK, but it helps me realize how spoiled I am by the Mexican restaurants where I live. The atmosphere was friendly and the service was good.

I love this colorful happy place. It's so clean and cheerful! The most important thing though, is the food. The White Queso is finger lickin' good. The Shrimp quesadillas are wonderful! The amount of shrimp they put in it is amazing! HUGE pieces of shrimp...cooked perfectly. Just look at my picture...need I say more?More

Hadn’t been here for a while so tried Maria’s on a rainy Sunday evening. Light crowd but filled up some while we ate. Nice place inside. Tons of servers all helpful and friendly. Enchiladas Suiza was our choice to split. Three nice sized chicken enchiladas...covered in a creamy cheesy sauce. Best thing they were in corn shells which made the dish even more yummy! Black boraccho bean and rice accompanied it all. A great salsa with chips too. Even provided us a hotter version which was great but definitely hotter. Nice place. Good food and service.More

Service is very consistent, food is good but short of great. The green sauce is the best that I have ever had. Good family atmosphere.

We enjoy their food and margaritas; for Independence, we feel they are the best... we generally split the ribeye steak and shrimp.

Didn’t know what to expect when we walked in. We live 2 and a half hours away. Looking for decent Mexican food. This fit the bill. I liked the salsa. Ate a chicken dish. It was tasty and the price was right.
