The food and the service was good. The price is reasonable and it seems like it is a place that most locals hang out. Therefore, the restaurant was quite noisy.

Most items are too spicy for me but my wife loves it. Great drink selections. Better prices than downtown.

We stopped in Sante Fe, New Mexico on our way to California 4/9. We researched places to eat and Maria's seemed like a good choice, the reviews were excellent. After visiting a few sites in town we went to have some food at Maria's. Needless to say, it was simply delicious. We had the combination plate, and the substituted any... More

The salsa and chips are homemade and they are a delicious start and they pair nicely with the delicious assortment of margaritas. Everything on the menu is yummy, but try the steak and rellenos for a real treat!

Went here with great expectations, has been a recommended Santa Fe restaurant for years. Food is just okay, I was really anticipating fresh ingredients and wonderful New Mexican food. Sadly, not hitting the mark, I ordered Chili Relleno, was not hot, flavor was canned tomato and cumin, over a greasy green chili, nothing great. Rice and beans were also served... More

Maria's has great New Mexican style Mexican food. The stacked enchiladas with Christmas chili sauce and a fried egg on top are as good as anywhere! The margaritas are very strong so be careful! Decor is simple but comfortable.

This place was really cute, I liked how western the interior looked, the food was really good. We ordered the mexican fajitas for two. I would say this is good for a first date, good for families, good for casual and friends and they have good drinks. The floors and the tables are all wood and look like you are... More

This was exactly what we wanted! We love Mexican food and this was great. The Carne Adobada and the chicken enchiladas were delicious; the red sauce has a serious kick but still maintained complex flavor. Oh, and the margaritas rocked; ours were made with Mescal and were some of the best we've had; delicious and potent. Get here!

Sorry to say, marias has gone downhill snce the sale to Gerald Peters. I have been coming here for four years, and sorry to say the fabled margaritas now have some sort of mixer and arenow too sweet. The rellenos, which I usually get, have been either cold or soggy the last few times. I am writing this in hopes... More

The hospitality staff was friendly, and the waiter was efficient, attentive yet lacked in friendliness. I ordered the tostadas with chicken and ended up scraping off much of the chicken which I found dry and rather tasteless. The chips were just okay, and the salsa was rather hot for me. My husband ordered the sampler which included a chili relleno,... More
