We tried Maria's on a whim one night while staying in Custer and could not have been more happy with our decision. The pork chimichanga is fantastic, so we ate dinner from Maria's multiple nights. But.... you cannot miss the breakfast burritos! We grabbed a...few for the road to eat on the fire trails and they were AWESOME!More

After a long day of sight-seeing, we passed by Maria's and saw a sign in the window for Mexican food made from scratch--we had to try it. Do yourself a favor and give it a shot! We sat on the patio during sunset on a...perfect evening. The chips and salsa were a delicious start, and then we ordered the nachos, chicken enchiladas, and steak quesadilla (we were on vacation, so definitely a splurge meal). Each menu item was spectacular in its own way. The portions were larger than expected, tasted fresh, and were very satisfying. Despite the restaurant being busy and only one or two servers working, each of the servers checked on us multiple times to make sure we were all good. Treat yourself!More

I only had enchiladas which were very good but others in our party seemed to enjoy their meals as well. They did a great job in serving a dozen of us in a reasonable time.

We found Maria's Mexican Restaurant while walking the streets of Hill City, South Dakota. We were promptly seated on the patio and our friendly server soon showed up to take our order. I had their chili relleno (sp?) and loved it. Side dishes were rice...and beans and they were very good too. We would go there again.More

This is a small diner type place. I had the chimichanga. Delicious. Don’t leave without getting the sopapillas.

My wife and I both had chicken taco plates on soft corn and they were superb. Just like authentic street tacos. Nice char on the chicken, rice was light and fluffy and refried beans to die for. We will definitely eat here again if in...Hill City South Dakota.More

This is a nice little Mexican restaurant in Hill City. We enjoyed the pork tamales but were a bit surprised by the cold spicy sauce on them. The tamales were hot and the sauce was mildly spicy but cold The beans were pureed and really...bland. The rice was good. Small amount of fresh tortilla chips served with fresh salsa and the bland pureed beans. Prices are very reasonable. It was a busy evening and we waited about 20 minutes for a table. Server was somewhat rushed. Alcohol is not available at this restaurant. Credit cards are not accepted. Would go again.More

We were in the mood for Mexican food and were very disappointed. Chips were stale, tamales DRY and served lukewarm which means cold by the time you eat the 2nd one. The nachos were not very good either... no jalapenos! How is that even possible?...We had to fight off the flys. There is no alcohol served here. No beer! The reply is that she is saving us from alcohol. OMG Plenty of other places to get good food with better furniture and no flys. Go there.More

was only in Hill City 4 days and ate here twice. 9 of us all really enjoyed our meals. Great food, great service and great price. Hard working family owned. They do a steady business and I can see why, very fresh homemade feel. Thanks...Maria!More
