I recently went to Maria's Cantina for a get together. The atmosphere is fun, the wait staff is great, and they have THE BEST guacamole' I have ever tasted. If you're in the area and haven't tried it yet, you are missing out.

Awesome food & one of the best waiters we’ve ever had. The spice on the warm chips was something we’ve never had before & it made them something special. Will go again when we are in the area.

$18 Seafood Fajitas gets you 5 unseasoned baby shrimp, 2 unseasoned 2in x 3in pieces of tilapia, old rice, soggy beans fresh out of the can and 10 pounds of onions. Gordon Ramsay would have thrown the plate across the restaurant and fired the manager.

I didn't eat the gumbo. I can attest that the food is delicious but must encourage you to contact the restaurant for its ingredients.
