I have been eating food either served by or made by Maria for almost 30 years and it has been consistently good the entire time. We were at "Maria's" about 2 weeks ago and as always the food was very good. Maria's restaurant is located close to the Stockton police department and isn't what I would call a dive but it won't get many points for ambiance. I love the Cocido (beef and veggie soup in a clear broth), cannot seem to get enough of the flour tortilla chips, the green (very hot) salsa and when I need a change of menu the Camarones a la Diabla. The food is always fresh, well seasoned, the refried beans are great because she isn't afraid to put lard inside them and the Spanish rice is light, fluffy with a hint of tomato. This is a family owned business where the grandkids are occasionally being sat, so families are always welcome. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have a large variety of items on the menu. The prices are reasonable and the service is friendly and Ms. Maria will remember what you had last your next time back. I don't think anyone will be disappointed in the food, we never are even after all these years. Enjoy!
