The atmosphere is somewhat rustic and quite nice. The salsa and chips are excellent. Full bar service available. Prices are reasonable. Food was good but not great. Beans had a great flavor. Food was tex mex with lots of cheese. Overall not bad. The bakery was very good with a large selection of sweetbreads. Service was very good.

If you are searching for really good examples of Tex Mex food, this is the place. All dishes are well prepared and presented. Tortillas are fresh made and very tasty. Beer and Margaritas are available. Prices are more than reasonable and service excellent.

I don't know about you but I get tired of what I would call "canned" Mexican food. Casa maria is the real thing. It's my "Go to" for Mexican food when I'm in San Marcos.

Casa Maria is an absolutely average Mexican food restaurant. The Chips and Salsa was the high point of the meal. The food enchiladas were bland, and the beans and rice were more like fast food. The wait staff was very friendly, and courteous.

I've had breakfast here many times and it is always very good. I usually have the Migas with chorizo, which I grade a solid A-. Today I had the Machacado plate. I gave it a B+. The beans and potatoes were very good and the machacado and egg mixture might be better with a white cheese topping rather than the... More

The place was very busy on a Saturday at lunchtime. The parking lot was right but luckily we found a spot. It seems like a popular place with good reviews so we wanted to trying their bakery items. The bakery display cases were beautiful with the goodies but I really didn't find any cookies that didn't look dry & generic.... More

About 25 friends and family members gathered at Casa Maria after the Aug. 12 graduation ceremony at Texas State. The restaurant was crowded with other large groups. We were seated upstairs at 3 long tables and felt we were having a private party with outstanding service. The food was good and the portions generous. Happy Hour margaritas were also a... More

Had a really nice dinner. The enchiladas were very good. Service was good although our server who was great was crazy busy ( not her fault). Despite how busy she was she took good care of us. Drinks were weak. Salsa was great. All in all ,Good Mexican food. Would recommend and we will return.

I have been to a lot of different places to have enchiladas and nothing compares to these at Casa Maria! The cheese is great, just enough meat in them, and most of all they taste fantastic. I love the service as well, every time I go they make me feel at home. Also, they have the best cucumber/chamoy margarita! you... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. They have the best salsa verde chicken enchiladas ever. I am from the valley which has the best Mexican food you can ever get! I moved to the Austin area 3 years ago and failed to find a restaurant that lived up to my high expectations. BUT THIS PLACE IS IT! They have the best... More
