Love the fish tacos and the traditional pork taco, but everything is good and they fix everything just how you want it. Atmosphere is casual and relaxed. Great place to stop in for lunch or dinner.

Maria's Taqueria is my favorite place to go eat when visiting Shepherdstown. Small warning though- make sure you are hungry! The food is amazing, the people who work there are fun and hardworking, and the atmosphere is very typical of the eclectic crowd of Shepherstown. The Mary Jane is my favorite!

Fresh, balanced, consistent, friendly, fun...this is an authentic taqueria in a sleepy colonial town. I am sure it does well with the students from Shepherd University, but it is a must for a fun lunch with the family and the many visitors that come to Shepherdstown to shop, stroll or bike. Love it!

Nothing fancy, just good food. I had the Fajita's which was very good. We had a large group of 10 so I can't say exactly what everyone had but I didn't hear any complaints. Service was good and staff was friendly.

Enjoyed the food although the person I was with thought it was way too salty. It was salty, but not so bad that I didn't enjoy the food. Great service

Been going here for years, even back when it was still just a taco closet before they moved to their current location ;-) The space is chill & casual, the food is very delicious (get the chicken traditional taco!!!), service is always very friendly, and they even serve beer now! Can't think of a recent town establishment that has been... More

We get take-out from here weekly. Even though I usually change something on the menu to personalize my meal, have never been treated with anything other than a can-do, friendly attitude. Good, fresh food.

When we first walked in I could hear light smooth jazz playing overhead. Very atypical for a Taqueria. But I loved it! Turned out the gentleman working the counter just plays music off his iPod. The Jazz was replaced by some light classic rock a bit later. But you don't want to read about music! How was the food? What... More

Good food with incredibly quick and friendly service. The decor is cute and food choices are varied (tacos, burritos, salads, desserts).

What a great little place. Fresh burrito, some kind of creamy sauce of the gods on it. Cool funky little spot, fast friendly service. What a nice pick me up after a long morning of reading about the bloodiest day in American History down the road at Sharpsburg. Thank you Maria ...
