Cool place

Nice Mexican food. It is a place for quick lunch or dinner not if you want to have lengthy meal. I enjoyed the food and the service was quick and easy

Stopped in to see what all the hype was about. While visiting my son at the U of I before we'd seen lines out the door. That's because there's very limited seating. It maybe seats 20 tightly. For being "fast food" the prices were high and the food was not memorable. Wouldn't recommend

A recommendation from a local for 'real' Mexican. We had tacos and fajitas, really high quality food, fast service and a nice atmosphere in a small space. Great prices as well. A real recommend for great Mexican in Champaign!

Amazing tacos for a reasonable price. Haven't tried a tacos there that wasn't incredible and the guacamole is deliciously fresh. Highly recommend!

If they only had booze....Love this place, the food is authentic and is unlike the other mexican restaurants in town that you could interchange without hardly noticing. I had the Chorizo Flautas and for around $10 this is a great meal with a little guac, pico de gallo, rice, beans and 2 flautas. Cant wait for them to open full... More

Maize in Green Street is a plain and small shop that serves excellent food. Hot, fresh, authentic, fast service, reasonable prices, a big step above the typical Mexican food served around Champaign.

Maize has long lines for a reason. Tasty food, generous portions, and very affordable prices. It is not the most comfortable place to eat in; it is a former doughnut shop, and thus has little room inside. The majority of customers use it for take-out. As with most guilty pleasures (messy food) it is best to eat it in the... More

Busy place - hated the wait, parking was no easy task but the food was delightful. Interesting ambiance but personally, I'd love to see them in a bit larger space. I would have eaten there a lot more but the crowd and wait was too much to handle.

The pastor tacos are super good. Small, very few seats, nor a place to linger around and hang out--and that's fine. All I want is the food. A co-worker brought me a chalupa from here last week--even better than the tacos. Hopefully the new location will be open soon so it'll be easier to get here and eat. Top notch.
