Don't miss the opportunity to eat here if you're in the area. Great food with very reasonable prices. Friendly staff who will give you info on what else to see while in the area.

I thought that unimpressive Mexican food was a rarity in California; that is until I ate in this restaurant. The chicken in both our dishes was dark meat, and the food had no kick; it was quite bland.

We were in the mood for Mexican tonight - after reading some of the reviews here we decided to try Maya restaurant. We were the only table as it was a Sunday evening. Service was average but the food was superb. Really tasty fajitas, and enough for three tortillas. Great experience, we'll come back next time we are in Morro... More

We stayed in the hotel next to it and were there late when they were just about to close. The owner was super friendly and let us in to order food for take out. The food was great! I lived a couple of years in Latin America and its hard to find authentic Mexican food. The salsa was super delicious... More

It was Christmas night in Morro Bay. We were looking for a place for dinner at 7:00 PM. Stopped at the first place, they were busy. The man said it would be 45 minutes before we could be seated. I counted 10 empty tables. We would have waited for dinner, just let us have a table and some beverages. Second... More

We were greeted by the friendly family that owns the restaurant and our order was promptly taken, the meal was a little slow in coming but it was Christmas Eve! I had the Special Burrito for $10.99, perhaps a little pricey but typical of coastal California. The flavour was a perfect balance of heat and taste in the spices, the... More

We were driving up the coast on Route 1 and stopped a Maya for lunch. We had a wonderful home cooked meal at a very reasonable price. Our server was efficient and food arrived at our table, hot and delicious. Wish we lived closer for a return visit.

As locals my wife and I have tried many of the Mexican restaurants in the area and we always return to Maya. Family owned, cute funky interior, great service and the best Mexican food we can find. Classic Mexican cuisine, good prices, week day specials. Can't go wrong. Steve P.

Best Salsa from a mom and pop, made fresh and compliments any thing they cook. Our table of Nine had a field day with the menu and not a plate went back with any food left on it. Staff was wonderful and move table to accommodate our group. Oh by the way, they allow prayer at this place, thank you.
