Mari Luna is a nice change of pace. Good food, with nice sized portions and excellent sangria. The specials are often great value.

Authentic and delicious meals at this excellent Mexican restaurant. I've enjoyed lunches + dinners here and never ever been disappointed.

The flagship restaurant of the the now defunct triumvirate of the Chef Luna brand, it started it all and is now the only one left. But it does not disappoint. You can get a truly high end dinner or just some great tacos (including lingua---tongue, my favorite!) or other Mexican standards. This is located in a former 1960s era Carvel... More

Went here for a business dinner. It doesn't look like all that much but don't let the appearance fool you. The food is great. The menu is very diverse with lots of choices for meat eaters, vegetarians and those who love seafood. The guacamole is fantastic.

Mari Luna is my go-to lunch place. The quality is great & always fresh, the portions are generous & the price is right. Soups & salads are awesome, burritos are way to big for me, and Peruvian chicken is a crowd pleaser & good for 2 lunches.

My daughter's favorite spot. Every time we go there, i am leaving in a good mood, saying "adious" to the cooks, getting best wishes from them and waitress. Good service, large portions - you get plenty of food for your money. Not a fancy restarant but delicious, well decorated food. So, who cares about decoratiions? If you happened having birthday,...

This place is a rather cheesy looking sorta-dive with some low budget paint and decor. Don't let that discourage you. The food is some amazing Mexican food, which includes the typical TexMex stuff, but also more authentic "down home cooking" which isn't very easy to come by. We have found the seafood to be their shining star: Gambas al Ajillo... More

This place is still very good, but doesn't have quite the charm of the place that now doesn't serve lunch. I came here about a month ago. The chips and salsa were good. I don't remember my main meal, but remember that it was decent, and then I had a slice of tres leches cake, which was pretty good, and... More

Well if you are a native Baltimorian you might remember that this use to be the location of a Carvel's soft ice cream location. Well, no more the owners have transformed this into a colorful little Mexican cantina, family friendly, and reasonably priced. They offer everything from a simple taco to deliciuous meals of Mexican favorites. THer eagaer staff is... More

This place could be on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, because it is a real dive. Sitting on a broken parking lot, in a run down building, this place really looks like it would be terrible. But its really amazing, if you can get past the slummy appearance. Home cooked Mexican, served with a smile makes this a highlight of the... More
