Start with the white queso appetizer which is full of flavor and super delish.Order the cucumber margarita to unwind and enjoy a light, refreshing cocktail. My favorite dinner selections are the Ribeye Shrimp dinner and the Chicken Poblano. You cannot go wrong with these two entrees. Then there is dessert. You will enjoy the experience.

We kind of picked this place because where it was compared to where we were that day, but were glad we did. Don't be turned off by the area or look of the place. It is in an interesting area of town. The food, however, is really good. We all ordered different things and enjoyed them all. Our two little... More

Went here for late lunch on a Friday afternoon. The restaurant was fairly empty, but the service was superb.(Sometimes, the after lunch lull means poor service). I also found the food to be quite good. I had just basic chicken enchiladas. My lunch partner is vegan and found the vegetarian options plentiful and in her words "very savory". I am... More

We had the guacamole appetizer, Mexican lasagne, and Main Street Special. Unique ingredients. Friday night drinks for $3.50 each. Came in hungry left stuffed. Fantastic Mexican cuisine. Live music. Nice dining room and patio. Superb service too.

We just had a great lunch at Maracas Cocina Mexicana - name change for Monica's Aca Y Alla. The menu is almost the same as Monica's. The Green Pasta and Mexican Lasagna are the premier items and once you taste them it's hard to try other menu items. Today, we had Jose's Combo (2 enchiladas, black beans, and rice), Plato... More

I took my family here during the week, (because of a groupon special), and was surprised by the quality of food and atmosphere. Its more of a place for a date or getting together with friends. Even so, the staff made us feel comfortable with a 5 year old kid. The food was fresh, and tasted homemade, We are kinda... More

Good spot for brunch. Service was attentive - water and tea glasses were never empty. Fajitas were cooked adequately. Flour tortillas were better than the corn. Queso was absolutely fabulous.

Good spot with nice food and friendly staff. Real flavor, real food. Live music on Saturday nights. Good before, good now. Like before with the music, be prepared to Congo . . .
