We came for $2 taco Tuesday, and ended up coming back on Wednesday and Friday! They have on tap one of our favorite Mexican beers, Negra Modelo. The food is fresh and flavorful. We tried different tacos and enchiladas; all were very good. They offer freshly handmade soft corn taco shells as an upgrade which is pretty good, but not... More

Great Mexican with fresh fish options. Small but personal palce. It was fun with a lot of options. The service was excellent and fast. Have ate here numerous times on trips and have never been disappointed.

My pork belly taco was one of the best eats on this visit to the islands. I could have eaten at Maria's everyday and been happy. The margarita was perfect; just the right combination of salt lime and tequila with nothing overpowering. Our group of 3 ate on the breezeway/porch and each had 3 tacos. At $2 or $3 each... More

If you love real Mexican food, this is the place! Can't recommend this enough. It makes my mouth water just thinking about the delicious dishes served by Maria, herself.

Hands down, the best place to get a taco, a burrito or fajita. You can't get better flavor. And the margaritas are divine. Don't miss the red enchiladas.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local merchant. The food was excellent, the spices used were very good and added such a good flavor to the food. They do have limited menu but whatever they have is very good.

We were here on "Fajitas Friday," and the service, price and quality of food make this one of the best we've found in three trips to St. Croix. It is in Gallows Bay, a small grouping of businesses around the ferry dock, the first business community east of Christiansted. The area has the best hardware store on the island, another... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us by several people during our 2 months on the island. We had stopped by twice before, during their posted work hours, and found it closed up tight. The third time we happened to be in the area and were hungry, and lo and behold, it's open. A sign says "Wait to be Seated"... More
