“Best Latin American eating experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

This was not my first visit here, but my first review. Even as you approach the restaurant, the aroma from outside promises something special. The entrees are always served hot and quickly. The food is delicious, the staff friendly and helpful, the restaurant clean and nicely decorated, the prices fair. My only complaint being, I always eat to much when I visit Villa Maya. My sincere compliments to the owner and his excellent staff.

“Can I give it 6 stars?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Every time I enter Villa Maya, I feel like I've come to a friend's house. The owner, Carmello, is there to welcome his guests with a warm smile and the atmosphere is equally as warm and inviting. There are several rooms and a nice bar area so seating is comfortable and not cramped. Chips and salsa (and water) are delivered as soon as guests are seated and the servers are not far behind. The food is always good and portions are generous. There are many, many choices for Mexican food in Montgomery County, but this is the ONLY place I will go. It's so nice to go to a restaurant and know that the owner and his staff go out of their way to connect with the people who are eating there. They really do make you feel at home.

“Hidden Gem - Villa Maya Rockville Md”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The family wanted to try this place based on a friends recommendation. It is tucked in a corner of a neighborhood shopping center. There is outdoor seating and about 80 seats inside spread among 3 dining areas. It was very clean. The menu had a wide variety of items and we order the chicken sonora, and the steak - both which were exceptional. They provide each table with a bowl of crispy and warm chips and some salsa. You can also order fresh guacomole dip from a person that goes table to table. The service was very quick and attentive. We got the fried ice cream and it was delicious. Try it. Prices were reasonable. We will definitely go back.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I visit the restaurant at least once a week, sometime more, even if just for drinks. The food is always good, the drinks unbelievable, and service friendly and attentive.
