Maria's one of Denam Springs first Mexican restaurants

I actually know and have met Maria who started this restaurant many years ago, nice lady. The restaurant offers what you expect in Mexican food. I would not say it exceeds expectations but for the price its pretty good. Not my favorite Mexican but its ok and a good value.

Nice atmosphere and good service, but the food is right off the institutional food truck, you would do just a well to go to Taco Bell. Needs non-smoking section also.

Place has been around for a while and recently renovated. Looks nice. Friendly people. Food is average - nothing special, but I would go there again.

We visited here for Cinco de Mayo. We both had the Hacienda platter, which includes chalupa (flat, crispy corn tortilla with beans, ground meat, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, and cheese), beef enchilada, chili relleno, spanish rice and beans. My wife modified the plate and made it lacto-vegetarian friendly, by removing the beef on the chalupa and swapping out the enchilada for... More

It has been a long time since I went to Maria's so decided to check them out. They always had great food and big portions. I was surprised to get mediocre food at the best and small portions.

The food isn't horrible but it's not amazing. We arriVed there and was offered the customary chips and salsa. It wasn't spectacular salsa. Better than a store bought salsa. I had the Maria Deluxe which offered a little show case of the different menu items: enchilada, taco, chili relleno (pepper filled with cheese and fried to a golden brown), tamale,... More

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
