We recently visited Maracas after working all day at the Deep Ellum Arts Festival. No one was at the hostess stand so we waited a bit. The decor is almost nothing except a couple of chandeliers, and doesn't even resemble a mexican restaurant. Chips and...More

Fabulous service and meal! $1 Mimosas and the best food! Great tacos and the Queso is amazing! Brisket tacos were soo good! They accommodated my daughters food allergies no problem! She had a quesadilla and some tortilla chips with queso.

Maracas is Mexican food at its greatness! Have to praise the guacamole, simply marvelous! Staff is very attentive and accommodating. Atmosphere was good, slightly darker than my preference but didn’t diminish the experience. Also, specials on Tuesday nights!

Each to their own but the food here is quite average. If you are on a tight budget and happy with sub-par food then this is the place. Probably the least interesting, flavoursome and fresh Tex-Mex I have had in Dallas.

I visited Maracas Cocina for an early lunch on a busy Saturday morning. The waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. The food was served promptly and tasted great. I highly recommend the beef fajitas. Good place to have a meal in Deep Ellum.

The food, drinks, and service were excellent. I had cheese enchiladas with avocado sauce covered with chicken fajitas...YUM! The queso was a hit as well. They also have a great happy hour margarita. Great atmosphere as well.
