I simply told the gal at the register who took my order to pick me something off the lunch menu. See attached picture. It was excellent.

Converted old style corner gas station. Truly unique. The small dining area fills quickly at meal time. The line to order your food extended out the door & many people did to go orders. The service was quick. Food was fresh and delicious. We will be going back soon.

My wife and I have planned to eat there for quite a while. Your early evening time was perfect. We got a seat and the place filled up, The building was an old corner gas station. Now serves the freshest Mexican food I have found in town. Pick a time that isn't busy or call for takeout.

You first see Maize and think it is just another "hole in the wall". It is a lot more than that. The food is fantastic! I have eaten here multiple times and everything as always been great.

Maize Mexican Grill is a tiny "hole in the wall" restaurant but has great food and very friendly staff. Their hot sauces have heat AND good flavor. Due to the small size, we sometimes get carry out. Their menu has a good selection and we enjoy the flavor combinations offered. While the size of the restaurant is small, this tends... More

Our son moved to New York but every time he returns to Champaign, he heads directly from the airport to Maize. Great Mexican food, inexpensive, very fast, packed all the time. We like it and many of our friends agree. Delicious food, hot and fresh always, and packed with flavor

Very casual and crowded, but good authentic quality. Quesadillas were packed with flavor! The complimentary sauces and chips are not your standard salsa and adds a nice variation from other Mexican restaurants. The only item I do not care for is the ribeye taco. I expected sliced ribeye meat with the usual taco fillings, instead it was a thin, fat... More

Found this restaurant thru trip advisor while staying in Champaign to tour the college. Food came out sooooooo fast. And it was so good and really cheap. 2 entrees, guac and 2 sodas for $25. Be warned...about 15 seats but since they're so fast I don't think it's a problem. Right on campus, perfect for students.

If you like Mexican, this is the best bang for your buck. It's small so plan to take it to go or eat at a bar. Price is very reasonable for the quality of food

We stopped here on our way through Champaign, based on the trip advisor reviews (especially fast, cheap, delicious). We happened to be there the night before the marathon, on a Friday night, so the town was jumping. There was a steady line, made up mostly of college students, but with some older adults mixed in as well. Lots of people... More
