Yes, the best chili relleno ever, and this is what made it stand out. First, it was not smothered in sauce. Second, the chili was lightly battered, allowing the flavor of the chili to come to the forefront. Third, the sauce, a spicy salsa verde, sparingly applied, kept the chili relleno from being soggy, and gave a substantial kick to... More

This is the top Mexican restaurant in Woodland by far, kinda hidden since it on the Main Street but the food is great and the place has a great outside patio for enjoying lunch during a beautiful day. I tried all the traditional plates from quesadilla to carne Asana and burrito. Service was so so but mainly doe to the... More

The atmosphere was pretty loud even though it was near closing time...the stools could be a little dangerous for shorter people especially after a few drinks. The ambiance outside is nice and the inside decor is stylish but not over the top. We ordered 3-4 appetizers, 2 dinners and about 6 cocktails and a few soda's and the bill was... More

Best service in Woodland and Davis. My Friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. We each had something different and they were all great!

Chile Verde and the Salmon Veracruz salad are the best things on the menu. The ceviche is the bomb also.

I truly want to know what others see in this Mexican restaurant that I do not see. The prices for most items is really high for what you get. This town has more Mexican restaurants than it has churches, stop-lights, and stray cats! So we have choices and many of the choices have much better food! The decor is Mexico... More

The food is consistently flavorful, fresh, and bright. The dishes are distinct...not just different configurations using a one-note red sauce. The patio is particularly nice for small groups and the bar is inviting and friendly.

This is s small restaurant, but lively. The cantina (bar) area is always full of patrons. The warm chips and salsa are pretty good. They offer weekly daily specials, particularly good are the street tacos. Maria's is a good place to wind down or to start off a good day or evening.

My first night and meal in Woodland CA was a good experience. I checked our Trip Advisor and saw that Maria's was rated pretty high. I felt like Mexican food would be good in Cali so I tried it. Friendly and prompt service, the Fajitas were delicious and the Marguerita was outstanding. The salsa was okay. It had the burned... More

I ate at Maria's years ago and was unimpressed. Recently they got a new chef, though, and now this is my new favorite place to eat in town. I am a picky eater and I order fajitas so I can choose what to put in my tacos. The chicken is my favorite -- the green sauce on top of the... More
