We love the new Meso Maya downtown Dallas. The location is terrific: right across the street from the Perot Museum and just a few blocks from the Klyde Warren Park. Inside is a lovely patio that is surrounded by two-story brick walls, including a balcony....More

Visited the Perot Science Museum nearby and took refuge here for lunch away from hordes of school children. Aside from the civility of the restaurant and excellent food, we had an incredible waiter. We started with guacamole and the long, thin, crispy chips that accompanied...More

I've been meaning to check out Meso Maya for quite awhile as it's next to my apartment building. The carne asada & sweet plantains were great. I'd definitely order that meal again. On the flip side, I was a little underwhelmed by the atmosphere &...More

The smoky flavor of the salsa with our chips is addictive. The cucumber margarita and the guanabana margarita are thirst quenching and delightful. The shrimp tacos are what I ordered and they were some of the best I ever had.

Meso Maya was a six minute walk from our hotel so we decided to try it out. The place was crowded, but in a good way. I had the brisket enchiladas, which were excellent along with the mango iced tea. My friend had the Budin...More

We were able to secure a reservation same day. They sat us promptly. Our server was very attentive--if you're not careful, you'll be out of there in 20 minutes they move so quickly. We started with nice crispy chips and a very fresh tasting salsa...More
