I used to go here once a week and now I got once a month. The service has been a lot worse and although I'm a regular, some waiters have been rude, especially when it comes to children coming in. One week they told us about a kids night for free and then the next week we go in, they... More

We stopped on a Wednesday afternoon. The restaurant is nicely decorated, very clean and our booth was comfortable. We were given water, tortilla chips with a fresh salsa that was delicious. We placed our order. My chili relleno was served with excellent refried beans, the chili relleno was on top of an outstanding sauce with a complex depth of flavors.... More

I have eaten here a few times before and always had good food and service but I was appalled at my treatemtn there on August 29th. We had to beg to be able to order a drink first. We were totaly ignored by our server, Juan Carlos. But the shocking thing that happened was when we asked for more chips... More

My wife and I love this place, It has by far the best home-made salsa you will ever taste. The service is great, and the restaurant is very clean. It has original authentic Mexican dishes with real Mexican people as chef's and servers. They have a full bar, with adult beverages, or regular non-alcoholic drinks. They have delicious Seafood entree's... More

Simply put the food was excellent. They where very busy when we visited and the food came out fast and hot. Portions are beyond generous. We loved it. The place itself lacks in style and ambiance but it's food and service makes up for it.

We stopped in for a quick bite while traveling back to NC. What a great meal! We had the fish tacos, fajita quesadilla and kids chicken burrito. Everything was delicious! Great service and yummy food!

Great Mexican food. Fair prices. Cold beer. Good service. Portions are sizable. This is truly a special place to come with family and enjoy down home Mexican cooking and you will not leave hungry. Highly recommend Maria's.

We enjoy going to Maria's about twice a month. The food is really good and the service is great. We will go again and would recommend this place highly

Great place for lunch. Wonderful luncheon menu although typically seem to pick the same items--lunch fajita and cancun salad. Staff are friendly without being hovering and seem to work well together as a team. Tucked away in a small strip mall and is likely not to get the attention of any but the locals. Can be very busy at times.... More

Nice looking, clean place. Extensive menu with reasonable prices. Service was pleasant but spotty. Mainly, though, the food was pretty uninspiring-essentially bland. If you are looking for Mexican in the area, we thought El Mercadito down the road was much better in every way. (Although the shopping center it's in looks a little scary)
