Let me start with margaritas with lemons and no limes. Yuck. Food was just slopped on the plate. No taste. Very bland. Waitress didn't care if we were there or not... Many more amazing local resturants to go to with fresh new Mexico taste Let's just say again. Average

I love Green Chili Cheese burgers and that is what I order when i eat here. They make the burgers wells done and still juicy, just the way I like them. It is a very old building and can be a little noisy. I recommend it for lunch. Good stuff!

The rice was tasteless. The tacos were so soggy we could not eat them. The posole was greasy and I bit into a bone. The restaurant was dirty. We were very disappointed, as Maria's is such a popular restaurant in Santa Fe.

We found no fault with Maria's. Reservations were a breeze and there was no waiting upon our arrival for dinner. The place was a buzz with a great mix of locals and travelers like ourselves. The atmosphere wreaks of times past and for my money is part of the appeal. Great location away from downtown Santa Fe and easy to... More

We had heard rave reviews about Maria's. Went on a Saturday night and the place was PACKED. Maybe my expectations were just too high. Margaritas were fine - nothing outstanding (maybe if I'd ordered the $13 silver coin the waiter tried to push?). The food is fine - nothing fancy, typical new mexican fare. It was all just fine. I...

Traditional mexican restaurant, ambiance was traditionally good. Food was delicious and for that kind of food prices are quite cheap

We went to Maria's on Sunday evening early and the place was buzzing. We were very pleased that we had booked because there were people queuing for tables. Our waiter said we had arrived before the rush - can't imagine what it's like later in the evening. Even though it was busy we had chips and salsa brought to the... More

While they have an impressive tequila menu, the margarita menu was a hilarious read of the same margarita style with just a swap out of tequila. Not very original unfortunately... the green chile stew, hot red chile salsa, and sopapilla's w/ honey were terrific...but the rest of the food fell flat.
