After waiting over an hour for our food the owner came out and apologized and told us they where about to start working on our order! The place was empty when we got there! When my taco salad finally came out it only had a few pieces of chicken breast on it, about 1/4 as much as anywhere else I... More

The owner greeted us with a new waiter. She was very nice. The salsa was average. The food was awful. We tried the tamales which were small and the were falling apart. The chili relleno was the worst!! Re-fried beans were good. Didn't get the guacamole salad because they didn't bring it!! Taco Bell would have been cheaper and about... More

Had high expectations given other reviews but, sad to say, we were disappointed. Salsa was excellent and we appreciated the individual serving bowls. Entrees were unexceptional; unable to recall dishes that each of our party of 4 ordered. Our server was enthusiastic and checked in with us often. Just wish we'd been as pleased as other reviewers.

Best salsa in the world, and I have eaten many Mexican meals. Maria's is a family owned business that has provided good food and service to me and my family for at least 20 years. My favorite is the taco salid, but everything else on the menu is also very good.

My husband and love this place and go there 2 to 3 times a week. The food is very good and they are there to serve you when you sit down. Could not ask for better serve or better food and the drinks are to die for. I would recommend this place to anyone.

I've been here several times over the many years it has been open. It is usually on request of someone in our group; it wouldn't be my choice for Mexican dining. Service (order, food to checkout), is a slow process. The atmosphere is "small cafe... cramped", no reason to want to linger . The food is nothing special!

It was very crowded. We felt like cattle being herded around. Once seated (or should I say packed in), the service was cold and uncaring. I was so looking forward to eating hear after hearing great word of mouth. The food turned out to be the basic run of the mill Mexican Restaurant. Maybe we just hit it on a... More

This place may look like just a little hole in the wall but it's MUCH more! The service is great, the food is amazing, and the enviorment has a very down to earth feel. It's a little cheap but its worth it. I would recommend the speedy gonzales. I give this place a thumbs up!
