The food is okay; service is okay; atmosphere is okay. Fine for a desperate need for Mexican food but only average.

this is a neighborhood staple, apparently, and being new in the neighborhood we needed to try it. the atmosphere is nothing special, could use an update, the bar area is in the back, which is nice for families that are looking to avoid that scene. The portions are plentiful, and the preparation solid. Salsa is hot, which is good. As... More

The good: the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, the menu abundant. You can get a zillion varieties of burritos. Mine was huge and seemingly packed with every edible ingredient you could imagine. I was given a wide choice of tequila brands for my margarita. It was served unfrozen (with ice cubes), which is fine, and it was noticeably potent... More

Generous & Good. Food was better than expected. A small sitting area with a full service bar in the rear. The staff had a hard time keeping up w/take out and dine in. Food came in a timely fashion, but bartender was helping wait staff. Will recommend for Food

I was disappointed in the way that this restaurant charges extra for everything! First of all, they won't give you chips unless you spend $10. If you want a refill that costs $1. The amount of salsa they served with the chips was less than 2 tablespoons, not even enough to dip your chips into. They charge .15 for cheese... More

I had the nachos with meat, cheese, and lettuce. It was great but it cost me $8.00 and I think that's a bit much for something I could have made at home for about $5.00. But it was either that or their $11.00 dinners. They have a bar and the margaritas looked good. Maybe I'll try that next time, hopefully... More

In addition to their fantastic selection of tostadas, they have good, filling, and cheap burritos. While much of the menu was disappointing, it is worth going merely for these two items. You should also try the nachos and guacamole dip. Maravillas also has a breakfast menu which I have yet to try. If you're a hung-over university student or a... More

Staying in Hyde Park

Neighborhood Profile
Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.
