Must eat!

Place is so damn good it's not even funny. Be warned though, this restaurant is tiny! Like 25 ways or less tiny. Do not bring more than one person here because it's not happening! It would be best to order over the phone, which can be a struggle since they are really busy, and pick it up to go... read more

The pastor burrito/tacos are a must have from Maize. They also have great guacamole. I used to never like Mexican food until I ate here.

Try the Tlacoyo with pork (pastor). The tortilla has a bean filling. Very tasty. The food is also filling and inexpensive. The order comes with homemade tortillas and salsa. I always get carry out. It gets very crowded, and the restaurant is very small, so I venture there when I am eating dinner late. They will be opening a new... More

Best to go when students are out of town just because it's less busy. Awesome food for awesome prices! I had the chicken nachos and it was a nice portion.

Authentic Mexican food. Tight quarters for seating. Order to go if you have a large party. Enjoyed the corn tortilla tacos especially the fish and chorizo.

We are traveling back to MN and found this place via Google as we passed through this college town. We are foodies and will often seek out good food. This little place is outstanding!!! The corn tortillas are especially good. Loved it so much we finished our lunch and ordered dinner to go for later in the day. Go there!!... More

This is a very small Mexican restaurant that has a great deal to offer. Their tacos are made from fresh, delicious ingredients. My favorite is their fish and pork tacos. I often have problem with greasy food. I never have had any problem with food from Maize! The restaurant is often full but the good news is that they are... More

This Champaign restaurant is nestled on a corner lot at First and Green Sts., just a stone's throw from the U of I campus. And college students love it! So much so that we waited until just before they returned to go for dinner. My friend had the flautas and I opted for a quesadilla with asada and mushrooms....and cheese!... More
