Maria's had taken over Taco Bell's old building many years ago. Taco Bell, it ain't. When I want quick to-go Mexican food this is always my choice. They have several restaurants in the area.

I used to eat here very often years ago when I lived in Cali. Went back for a visit and its still just as good. Great food. The rolled tacos are delicious.

I wish they had one of these where we live. The food was delicious, fast service and great value. Did I mention they give you a lot of food? Well, they do! My husband and I got so much food that we had enough left over for a late night snack at our motel.

I've only eaten at their Merced location a couple of times but do eat at the Atwater location often. They have the best carne asada around and their food is very authentic.

I am probably one of the few people who visit Merced for the food! We used to live there and when visting friends the stay is not complete without Maria's rolled tacos (I like the American Guacamole). The hot carrots are also very good. Cheap, filling, wonderful food!
