This Mexican restaurant in the heartland of America offered very good and authentic Mexican food. The Chile Relleno was equal to any I've had here in California or Mexico. The staff was very friendly, quick and spoke very good spanish. I would certainly go here again.

We enjoyed a meal here two weeks ago before catching a flight. The margaritas were big, strong and delicious. The warm chips with salsa and cheese dip were yummy. The food was very good and service was quick and friendly. The restaurant and restrooms were nice and clean. It was an excellent way to start our vacation!

If you like ground beef tacos and burritos then this is the place for you! Food was very bland, refried beans were straight from the can and salsa was just chopped tomatoes. On the upside, the chips were warm!

Enjoyed the dishes (a little bland) and the staff was very friendly. A little pricier than what we are used to, but then again the food came out promptly and was hot. Will return and ask to spice it up next time.

I live in Platte City and eat here frequently as it is the best Mexican in town. When you sit down you immediately get warm chips and salsa. If you would like cheese dip, order a small bowl for the table. They won't ask you and it's wonderful! Their house Margaritas are wonderful! I frequently get their Fajitas (wonderful and... More

I was staying near the KCI airport on a business trip and went to Maria's based on reviews. I was not disapointed. The food was good and the prices were fair. The cheese dip is very good. I will say the the pico was a tad heavy on the onions.

This place is overrated, it is good food and alright service. I would say it's a step above Taco Bell. They need to work on the friendliest to customers. Their prices for food are fair for what you get. I don't think I will go back.

The staff work within your food preferences and are very friendly. No worries about what to wear, either. Professionals and families with young children are equally comfortable. The food is quite authentic - only wish they offered something unexpected.
