We had four different people tell us to go to Maria's for the margaritas and we were not disappointed with the high quality Tequila and Grand Marnier! We also ordered an appetizer portion of guacamole and shared a combination plate of New Mexican food...all were excellent! Our server was excellent, gave us great recommendations and was lots of fun!

One of the things we've learned in the many places we've lived and visited is that you become very accustomed to the mexican food restaurants in your home area. Maybe this is the case here. First turn-off was the store bought tortilla chips. The margarita was ok, but a little on the sweet side. Carne avocada was tasty as were... More

They have a huge menu of margaritas. The two we chose were so good. The food was very good. Authentic southwestern Mexican. Cute restaurant and good service. They serve a sopapilla for you to enjoy with honey at the end of your meal.

We weren't exactly hungry when we went to Maria's, but had heard great things about it and went to sample the food. We had chile rellenos, enchiladas, tacos and tamales, all on a combination plate. The red sauce on the enchilada was earthy and delicious, the chile was very flavorful, although I prefer meat in my relleno, not just cheese,... More

Stopped in on our way to our hotel, found on Yelp. Didn't disappoint. Highly recommend the ribs, tamales, and stacked enchiladas. House margaritas are fantastic. Fresh lime juice, not too sweet, no overpowering mix. Definitely worth stopping in. Went twice on a three day trip!

Every trip to Santa Fe includes a meal at Maria's. From the first time I ate here and with the help of the waitress I still enjoy the food and drink. Definitely a must.

They had the biggest selection of tequilas and margaritas that I have ever seen! I had a chili margarita and it was pretty good. I had the carne adovada and it was excellent! They give you hot sopapillas with honey. They building can seat a lot more people than you would expect looking at the outside of the place. Servers... More

This place has good margueritas and the best Carne around. The tortillas are made onsite and are worth asking for a second helping. The atmosphere is old Santa Fe which is cool, too.
