We were attracted by the building - it looked like a fun place. That was the best thing it had going for it. I had chicken tacos. There was very little cheese on the tacos. The chicken was cooked in a salsa type sauce but...More

Every time we visit Austin, we go to Maria's for their breakfast tacos. They offer many choices of fillings. When the weather is good, we enjoy eating in their outdoor area.
