We have made it a must stop for dinner when we are in the area. The food is very flavorful with good size portions at very comparable prizes and it is hard to top the location.

We had dinner here and enjoyed it very much. The Margaritas were excellent.I had a Tostada Salad which was very good. My wife orders the same thing at every new Mexican restaurant we try: a beef taco and cheese enchilada. If they get those right she will come back and try other things on the menu. Well, it looks like... More

My husband and I happened into this place and were so glad that we did. Our server was attentive and courteous, and the food was excellent. The price was very reasonable, especially considering the size of the servings.

I dined here with a group of 7 people from work. The food and service were very good. We enjoyed some tasty appetizers and for my entrée I had the Camarones Ala Diabla. It was spicy and very good. Each person indicated that they enjoyed their meal. I will definitely return to eat here again.

On Thursday nights, Palm Canyon Drive becomes a street fair, with music, food and interesting booths. You can see it all from the patio of Maracas, and have a delicious meal too.

....and I write surprisingly because it's in the middle of the tourist area of PS. The service was efficient, very friendly and accommodating. The portions were very generous and the price was very fair. My iced tea never ran out. I ordered the quesadilla and it was loaded with nicely cooked chicken breast and NOT dripping in oil like so...

I am Mexican so I am very picky about Mexican food, but this place is very good and I'd recommend it to anyone. I had the molcajete dish with steak and it was delicious. The margarita was good sized and great flavor. Not too expensive. Right across from our hotel so we loved it.
