Atención Perfecto!

Forced off I5 by miserable traffic, we decided to make a stop for lunch on our way to Great Wolf Lodge. Mayan Mexican in Yelm was perfect. We were attended to immediately and often. In about 10 mins we had chewed and dipped through 2 baskets of chips and 4 bowls of salsa. The salsa, something... read more

I had the enchilada + tostada lunch special. It was wonderful! Loved the salsa too! Quick service and a great price! My friends loved their meals as well! We will be back!

The service was good and attentive. The food was OK, but you do get a lot of it. I ordered the Carnitas a la diabla. It was probably enough to serve 3 people. The Mayan Iced Tea was good and packed a good punch. We would probably try it again, but perhaps something different next time.

Near golf courses and next to I-5 entrance, this shop seemed to be a good stop at dinner time before heading home. Wrong! The Carnitas de Res was chewy like rubber, the Borrego (lamb shank) took forever to cook, and Mariscada a la Mexicana was gluey. Service staff must have rescued the business, with quick hands on providing chips and... More

Seems that we head here as our favorite one of the Mayan chain. Generous servings and great wait staff. Food is consistently good and we ask for the salsa verde with our chips. The carnitas a la diavble are one of my favs or just plain chicken enchiladas or carnitas.

Here for a month long stay & finally tried the Marvin Way location based on reviews. Been there now twice. The food was good tho not as spicy as South Texans are used to 😀. The bean dip & salsa were extraordinary. The plates for dinner are huge. I had an awesome veggie quesadilla made with fresh vegetables. So big... More

decent and plentiful food, apparently they don't want you to sit and talk. If you want a refill on water or other beverage - TOO BAD! They have NO desire to offer you coffee or dessert after a meal

Went here at the tail end of my family holiday while stopping off near Olympia, WA. I'm usually weary of places that have pictures on their menus but this place was the exception. Well prepared and tasty dishes with unlimited supply of tortilla chips and freshly made salsa - great for my 2 ravenous teenage boys. There was even a... More

We were nearing the end of a driving vacation, approaching Sea-Tac airport, when dinner time arrived and we were in search of somewhere off I-5 at which to stop. We saw a sign for Mayan and decided to give it a try. We were very pleasantly surprised by the outcome of this decision. The chips and salsa were excellent, the... More
