Good food, quick

I always like to stop at Maize for lunch when in Champaign. Great place to pop into for a quick and delicious lunch and if you are lucky - they'll be a place to sit at the window counter too.I like the fish tacos, and with the chips and salsa that come with the meal, I'm "just right" full.

Went to see my nephew at U of I and we decided to eat here. It was very busy and very crowded. The line moves pretty fast. Nice and efficient waitstaff. Found a spot by the counter and wasn't long at all before we got our order, and IT WAS CORRECT!!! So many places can't seem to get the order... More

Visited just last week while there visiting family. A very tiny place but WOW! What a wonderful surprise! The food was excellent ! They were quick and the food was great. We ate there at the window counter, there are no tables, just counters. Delicious chips and two kinds of salsa come with whatever you order. There were 3 of... More

Small place with big taste! The food is authentic and priced right. The burritos are big and the chicken nachos were great. Not much room inside so don't go at lunch rush or evening rush.

There is really nothing on the menu that isn't good...It is all made to order and so fresh and authentic...Only dislike is the place can be a mob scene but if you plan the times of your visit you can avoid that. Also they need bigger cups for their salsa..kindve hard to dip your chip in a thimble

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
