Good food

Chili Rellenos were yummy. Service was a little slow but the staff was friendly. The atmosphere and building are great. Will visit again.

We have been eating at this old New Mexican restaurant for many years. I remain amazed at how the owners have maintained such reliably good service and food for such a long time. Our recent dinner there was excellent with fresh well prepared food. We were served flavorful and generous portions. Everyone at our table was completely satisfied with their... More

We've been going to Santa Fe for number of years and this trip was our first time to eat at Maria's. I friend has recommended it and so glad we took their advice! It was so delicious the first time we went that we went a second time and it was equally delicious then. Highly recommend, parking is not easy... More

They make the juiciest, most flavorful Carne Adovada that I have ever had. Theif salsa is great, and they have a tequila selection beyond any I have ever seen, 100+ types!

Our last meal of the trip & it was outstanding! A friend told us of this tucked away restaurant that we would have never found alone as tourists, and we are so glad we went. Everything we ate was fantastic & the margarita menu was fenominal.

Best carne adovada in Santa Fe ... has been for more than 30 years and still counting. Anyone says different must be nuts or eating at a friend's mama's house (the locals do it best)

This is exactly where you want to go for very tasty, authentic New Mexican fare. the green chile dishes are what you want here. It is very popular with both locals and visitors, but they do take reservations so give them a call first. It is not far from downtown, but you will need a car to get there. The... More

A very good mid range restaurant! Deserves a visit for either lunch or dinner. Margaritas were excellent.

It's a bit hard to find and doesn't have adequate parking, but if you actually get into Maria's in Santa Fe, the food is more than worth the effort. We went away with smiles on our faces and satisfaction in our stomachs.

Our family of five ate five different dishes and we loved everything. The fajitas came sizzlin' hot and had all the fixings. We all enjoyed our food. The margaritas were nice and strong. Our server was attentive and our food came out quickly. We called ahead to make reservations so we were seated quickly. And, compared to many other Santa... More
