I don't come here as often since I don't live close anymore. The food is first quality. A good menu of traditional Mexican foods and drinks.

Was in town for a weekend visit, and wanted to grab a quick bite. My husband and I headed to Maize to enjoy some delicious Mexican food. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. We sampled a Lomo taco, Pescado taco, chicken taco, queso fundido with carne asada and a Huitlacoche quesadilla....all excellent. Yes, this place is small... More

First time here tonight! It was honestly the best and most authentic Mexican food I've ever had! The place is tiny(which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars). Unless you skip the rush hrs, you might be waiting awhile if wanting to sit down to eat. If you can't stand crowded places, know this ahead instead of... More

Very small, local place. Very little seating. Fresh, authentic! The guacamole is exceptional...so are the homemade chips!

The food here is fantastic. Seriously. Really good Mexican food for mid-state Illinois. But the building started life as a donut shop many moons ago and there is NO seating, NO standing room, NO line-up space, and NO lack of over-patronage at really any time. (Ok, in the summer when most of the students are gone, you CAN actually get... More

Really great Mexican food that tastes fresh with fresh made tortillas, salsa and chips. Only wish there was a larger space for eating in

Very good Mexican food, Good size portions and excellent price. The steak taco Mexica were awesome. The wife and kids had burritos which they devoured. The chips and salsa very good too. I will definitely be back the next time I visit my daughter at college.

This is a lunch-counter type of place, the opposite of fancy, but the food is unbeatable. My friends and I had huarache, chalupas and carne asap, and all were fantastic, fresh and tasty. There's a big carry out business which isn't a surprise given the limited seating (maybe fits 20 people inside, a couple of picnic tables outside). They are... More
