I was really impressed with the bright, colorful interior of this little restaurant just off Highway 1. For breakfast, I had Mexican scrambled eggs with refried beans, flour tortillas and coffee. Not too pricy considering all the food I had. The place is well-lighted with spacious windows all around. I would recommend it to travelers.

We stay at the Best Western El Rancho. This restaurant is located on site. It is casual, easy to get to and the food is average for mexican food. The portions are fine. The service is fine. Really no complaints.

Ate lunch here with a group of 16. I ordered the chicken taco salad . It was a generous size and very tasty. Others in the group ordered a variety of Mexican specialties and all appeared to be very pleased. Very good service for a group of this size. I'm sure many of us will return in the future. We...

Love this place. I was going to grab some fast food before I left town cuz I was in a hurry. But......the smell from the kitchen lured me in! I had their breakfast burrito (wet) & when they say hot plate they mean it. This thing was hugh. Eggs, bacon, cheese, home fried potatos and beans all stuffed in side... More

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
