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.

I read all the previous reviews and really wanted to love Maize Mexican Grill, the problem is - I can't! The space is just impractically small and even ordering a to go order I was invading a person who was eating's personal bubble. We were there at lunch hour, so perhaps it is more tolerable off peak times. To me,... More

Very authentic Mexican and extremely yummy. It is super tiny so take out is best unless you are solo or only a couple and willing to sit at the counter.
