Honestly, the Best burritos Ever!

I have to say that my husband and I frequent a lot of Mexican restaurants all over and we both agree that the two different burritos we tried were some of the best dishes we've had...anywhere. If you are anywhere near Grand Junction, Co. you should go! I had the veggie burrito which I wish I'd... read more

Lot of chips and salsa which wasn't super hot as in other places. Non drinks but the drinks from the bar looked really good. The wait staff was effective and very friendly. The prices were quite reasonable. Food was home cooking and tasty. Servings were adequate. Live music in the bar. I will go back.

Decided to stop in to experience a new place we hadn't tried. Going around the holidays on a Friday night, we figured we would have a long wait. We were seated in 10 minutes. Chips and salsa almost beat us to the table! They had live music, a simple guitar player singing favorite songs from John Denver and Neil Young.... More

This place has a great location and very nice waitresses. Chips & Salsa are above average. Friends took me there for a B'day celebration and apologized for how bad the food was. There are much better choices (and some worse) for Mexican food in this area.

We ate here in September and recommend that you try it! The outside of the building doesn't show much promise, but the interior is attractive and the staff is very efficient and cordial. I tried the tamale per the recommendation of our waiter and enjoyed it very much. The food isn't fancy, it's just good home cooking and it's a... More

Friday night and the restaurant is busy, so my daughter, granddaughter and I go in to eat. Service was ok, but food was some of the worst I have ever had. The chips and salsa had to be out of a bag and jar. We both ordered the cheese enchilada with beans and rice and a taco on the side.... More

I would have to differ from one of the reviewers who said this is the best Mexican food she's ever eaten, but assuming she's eaten in horrible places. It's a fair and simple home cooking style cuisine and very well priced. It's a very casual atmosphere and extremely friendly staff.

Staff was super friendly. Chips and salsa were good. Polk tamale was dry, chile relleno was slimy, shrimp dish was overpowered by the minced garlic.

Oh how I adore Maria's. The Mexican food is very delicious. However my favourite is the burgers! The service is always pretty friendly.. Love that Maria will come around to the tables and catch. She remembers her guests and is very welcoming.. We go here often! Recommend!!

The breakfast burrito was very good, and the Tamales are also good. Nice downtown location is easily accesible for out of town visitors.
