Really good food

This is a great place if you are looking for authentic southwestern food. The resturant was family friendly, and the staff went out of the their way to make us happy.

Marías was recommended to us by a local shop owner. LOVED this place. I had the combo plate that I highly recommend, as it gives you a taste of everything that María's is famous for. The chile relleno is the best I've ever tasted. The margaritas are made with lemon, not lime, so be warned if lime is what you... More

March 23, 2015 5pm. My sister and I both got food poisoning from eating at Maria's in Santa Fe. The Exorcist with muscle pain and chills. We had a margarita, guacamole and split the Grande plate with short ribs, tamale, enchilada and fried chile pepper. Guacamole was not fresh, the tomatoes and onions in it were not crisp. Ribs tasted... More

We loved our visit to Maria's. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly. Everyone wants to know where you are visiting from and there were a lot of local families there. I had the blur corn enchiladas and my husband had the green chile pork stew. They keep bringing chips and salsa and... More

The food here is absolutely delicious--some of the best we have had in Santa Fe. The portions are good-sized. We will definitely go back to Maria's!

I went back to Maria's again during a visit to Santa Fe and I am still in love with the food, ambiance and service. It is appropriately noisy because folks are there to have a good time while enjoying the fantastic New Mexican specialties they serve up. I will continue to go back to Maria's whenever I am in Santa Fe.... More

Maria's is our favorite New Mexican restaurant. We are there every Friday night for our green chili chicken enchilada's with Grandioso margaritas. We always have great service, and satisfying meal and the best drinks in town. Look for us when you come!

The meal wasn't bad but after trying many other restaurants this week I would have to say Maria's does not stand out as memorable. The food items were hard to decipher as the enchilada looked just like the tamale and everything was covered up with too much sauce. The Margarita was not that great. The Don Rael at La Fonda...
