Probably pretty authentic; & I like the vibe.

Mayas is such an off-the-beaten-path type of establishment that I can hardly believe I'm in downtown Portland. Really funky, not one gentrified square inch -- more like the famous Portlandia foodie-carts (before Portland HAD food carts) -- but bigger and in an actual, old building on the corner of... read more

I ate here 3 days ago and went back today for more, the food is quite good, large menu to choose from, making it hard to choose. Lot's of meat for those of us that like it, veggie's for those that like that.. You can have it full of spice or none at all, beans, black beans, refried beans, rice,... More

On my annual visit to Portland, I always stop off at Maya's. This time was disappointing. I ordered the taco/enchilada combo plate. The chicken taco was OK, but the carne asada enchilada was horrible. The beef was dry and had no flavor at all. Their salsa was still good though, so I may go back there next year.

Stopped in for a quick snack because most of the food trucks were closed, and nothing was appealing. The bright exterior immediately got my attention, and loving Mexican food I was in to try it. I ordered a carne asada pequeño taco, very reasonable at $1.75. The corn tortilla was clearly handmade, and delicious. They was a lot of meat,... More

I should ordered what everybody reviewed, the burrito... Instead I ordered a very Mexican dish "sopes". I didn't like them, not tasteful at all... Probably the burritos are ok, but I hit disappointed with what I ordered. The place is nice, the employees are kind it has a good atmosphere. I'd say an average place...

Had their 'wet burrito' for lunch. The best I had in a long time. Totally loved it and a really cool little place. Will definitely come back here despite all the lovely food trucks in downtown Portland. 100% delicious!

Mexican restaurants downtown seem far and few between, but this sure did fit the bill. Food was fast and tasty. I have a hard time finding good chile rellenos, but theirs is delicious.

stopped randomly on a stroll downtown. Service was very friendly, food was great. Portion sizes are a little small, but it's as expected. Homemade lemonade and lots of other great beverages available. Good for a quick Mexican food fix!!!

Quite possibly the best burrito's in all of Portland! Be ready for a bit of a line wait, but its worth it. they serve beers, authentic ceviche, and amazing tacos/burritos. Located smack in the middle of downtown, located next to a cool bar called MOMO's.
