“Delicious food and amazing bakery counter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Delicious fajitas, bakery goods and chips. Definitely recommend a visit when in San Marcos. You have to try the salsa.

“Horrible food, Extremely poor service and dirty environment.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We came here based on the various reviews I read on Trip Advisor.

The reviews are way off as this restaurant is not only dirty, but the service was very poor and the beef fajitas we ordered was very, very tasteless and it was not made from the cheapest cuts of meat and not from the typical Skirt cut.

The booth seats are worn out and the holes are covered with duct tape.

The floor and tables were visibly dirty.

Our waiter was simply terrible. He was very inattentive and had to get the attention of the hostess for refills. He returned to our table just shortly before we got up to leave. I brought it to his attention that he was not very attentive and he just shrugged it off.

Upon checking out, I told the manager Alex that our waiter was very bad, he too shrugged it off.

I have been to many Mexican restaurants and seriously, there's nothing authentic about this restaurant.

I don't recommend it and I most certainly won't go back.

“Just plain good food at reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

My wife and i have stopped at Casa Maria many times as we've driven to and from San Antonio. It's not fancy, but the wait staff has always been pleasant, the food very good and quick to get in and out.

“Good breakfast and bakery, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Casa Maria is a short distance from the highway in San Marcos. There is a bakery at the front which serves sweets, and a full service restaurant which serves meals all day. Both were good, service was friendly. Next time I am in San Marcos, I will return for lunch or dinner.
