“Fantasic Food Cooked with Love!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

There wasn't a lot opened when we got into town on a Wednesday night. We saw the other reviews and went to this restaurant. It was so good!!! The prices were right. It's not much to look at from the outside or inside. But this is the place to eat!! We went back there again for breakfast the next day.

“Well marinated, well done!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

I love hole in the wall restaurants but after the hotel proprietor told me the "salsa wasn't too hot" I almost vetoed making the trip to Maria's. Turns out, the carne asada is perfectly marinated, the corn tortillas are fresh, and they are accommodating for those of us with celiac disease. I had to pork tacos, mom had the carne asada tacos, and we split a homemade, firm flan. On a trip from Tucson to Taos, this was the best meal we had. Though the staff is often poorly reviewed, we found that they were generous and warm with travelers--I even left my credit card at the restaurant and they offered to cut it up for me since we were 2 hours away. And for those salsa snobs, it was perfectly spicy--not mild but fresh with enough spice that I reached for my iced tea after several chips. Hit up Maria's for a nice break from road food!

“REAL good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We found Maria's after a long day of travel and with BIG appetites. We were pleased with our meal and the great service. The food is very authentic- true down home N Mex grub ( Chilli Relleno was muy bueno!) The young couple that manages it ( her family biz) had come back from pro Restaurant work in LA and brought with them a flair of sophistication to the already delicious choices- they were incorporating a special "cooler" summer menu that i only wish we had been able to sample. They also serve a very affordable breakfast---YAY for Maria's! Thanks for your culinary contribution to our trip!

“Good food and friendly people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We rolled into T or C around 8:30 and this was the only place open. Luckily, the food was really tasty New Mexican, not greasy at all. And the new owner, Hugo, was super friendly and helpful. Two thumbs way up!
