Delightful and delicious Mexican food

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... read 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

Food was delicious. There is limited seating, all "bar-style", so be prepared if you come with larger group. It was very reasonably priced, and quite popular with the locals. There was a line out the door when I was there, but they seem to handle folks quickly.

We stopped here on the way back home from a road trip. A great last stop before returning to Indiana. The food was delicious, a little spicy for my taste. I had had the pork tacos and guacamole/chips which was great. The price was just a bit much but if we're ever passing through again we'll stop.

Visited with my brother. Small corner shop, very tight on space. Their guacamole was excellent, but a little bit pricey. My brother had the steak taco and he wasn't impressed. I had a pastor burrito that was decent. Maybe my expectation was too high, but it certainly didn't live up to the hype. The service was good and speedy. Overall,... More

I had seasoned pork tacos and my wife had fish tacos. Both were excellent. Delivery is quite fast, within minutes, and the shells are homemade soft corn. It's a small place with only counter seating; at best it seats 16-20. Best dang tacos I've had in a long time.

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

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

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!
