We love Maria's Mexican Pueblo. The food is excellent and the staff friendly. I've been to alot of Mexican resturants, but you cannot beat this one for the value and service you get. Keep up the good work.

Food is "fair" at best. Find another place. The authenticity of the food is just not there. Go to the Mexican restaurant at the Food Lion shopping center instead.

After many yrs. they have gone out of business. They shut the doors a few weeks ago. Trip advisor is saying I have to write 50 words to submit so I am not sure what else there is to say other than Maria's is closed for good. No longer in business. Maria is a fantastic positive person and I wish... More

Went by on Wednesday as usual and was greeted by a sign saying that Maria was only catering. Maria's Mexican Pueblo was sadly closed. We will miss eating Mexican food in Western North Carolina,

This is my husband's and my favorite Waynesville restaurant. When we are in NC, we eat at Maria's every week for lunch. Maria was born and raised in Mexico, moved to California and then happily to NC. Maria can serve you the Mexican food that you want. The salsa is HOMEMADE by Maria, and the cheese is what you request.... More

I had heard grand reviews from coworkers for years and finally talked my husband in to going. We were the only people in the restaurant and the service and the food were horrible. I will never go back. The salsa wasn't authentic it was canned and too much cheddar cheese smothering everything.

You have to visit Maria's if you are in town! The salsa is amazing! I have loved it since I was a child. I have never had any other like it. It is very garlicy, which I love! Maria is a wonderful lady. Certain tuesday nights are retro nights and the menu prices are from the 80s. That is a... More

Maria's is awesome! She has the best salsa I have ever eaten. When I mentioned this to her, she only says that it's because of the fresh ingredients. Of course, her own recipe has something to do with it I'm sure. We've tried the other "authentic" mexican restaurants around Waynesville and all I can say is I know what store... More

Found this place through a Groupon and continue to go back because the food is fresh and good. It's off the beaten path, but worth looking for.

All I can figure is that this place is never standing room only because it's on a side street. We go here every year for at least one meal and have been doing so for many years. The owner, I assume Maria, is always there and always attentive. Her food is reliably great and she is a sweet heart. In... More
