“unique menu, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2009

My wife and I were mixed on this restaurant. She didn't care for the food and I liked it. Chalk it up to personal preference. She didn't care for the chocolate mole sauce. The food was very fresh and wasn't "heavy" at all. The salsa was very good. The pumpkin seed appetizer was very good (but spicy). The atmosphere was very nice and the carved wood chairs were very comfortable. My only issue was the value of the drinks. The margaritas are served in small martini glasses. With drinks approaching $8 - $10 each, the small martini glass serving was a little on the stingy side.

“Not your ordinary Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2009

The food is not the standard taco, burrito, enchilada fare. My colleague and I just wanted a small bite before we headed to the airport, so we jumped in here. Fresh Mexican beer on tap! I had an appetizer of deep fried artichioke hearts-not something I've had before or could contemplate making @ home. They were fantastic.

“SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2009

Sure the food is great, but the service from servers, bartenders & managers is something special. Did I mention they have a great bar and room for family dining. Denny and Manny continue to make locals and area visitors feel the warmth and joy that is Maya.

“okay restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2008

Food was good, service was bad. The restaurant was very loud and service was slow. The food was good (a little expensive for what you get), I was not super impressed. I would not recommend this restaurant.
