Recommended to me, its a narrow, long space but is warm and inviting once you get in. Tacos were flavorful and Mexican style (no lettuce and cheese). Service was friendly and fast.

At first look it doesn’t look much but the decor and food are unreal! When you first walk in the decor is tasteful and authentic! We ordered nachos de Maria to start 1 portion between 4 us (the waitress could of easily up-sold us but...she didn’t). We all ordered different mains my dad had “burrito belly” afterwards. It was the best Mexican food we had all had in a long time! Also a special mention for the margaritas we had, the raspberry flavour was delicious! This place is a must! Worth every penny and mouthful!More

We had a lovely family meal under the stars on a warm night. Service was friendly, and they were helpful with attending to our three year old. They suggested skinny margaritas for the adults that were made with agave instead of sour mix. Very Good!...We had house-made guacamole and fried plaintains. The chips were the only problem. They were more like a pita chip. Not good! Then we ordered our entrees, which were good, but the rotisserie chicken was amazing! Simple food. Nothing too exciting, but authentic.More

My husband and I were brought here by friends who live in the area. I have traveled through the southwest and have had many Mexican meals. Maria's Bistro Mexicano tops all of them! My husband, who has been to Mexico, agrees. Everything was delicious. We...were fortunate to be there at brunch time when you can have several glasses of champagne, mimosa, or bloody mary's for no additional charge as the original cost of your food that includes a drink. A friend and I had Huevos Yucatecos; another friend had a burrito, and my husband had an Enchilada Suiza. Everything was superb. The place is small, really way too small for the potential of this place. Wish it were located in New Jersey!More

We frequent this restaurant for good reason. The sangria (both red and white) are delicious... get a pitcher. The burritos, the carne asada and the enchiladas are always on point. The guacamole is made fresh to order and we love it. There is outdoor seating...in nice weather in the back.More

Started with a pitcher of delicious pinacoldas while husband enjoyed Mexican beer. Nacho platter fabulous with steak and thick cheeses and peppers. Hubby enjoyed steak on lava rock while I feasted on chicken in mole sauce. Small restaurant with grand taste. Highly recommended

Don't let the exterior fool you. Inside the restaurant you'll love the neatness, cleanliness, and original Mexican ambiance. The food was excellent, and the staff was very friendly and attentive.

Visited March 8th with my mother and my cousin and his family. Doesn't look like much from outside, but get past the unremarkable exterior and cramped bar area at the front and there's a decent-sized little bistro in there. Friendly efficient service and tasty Mexican...food. Any dishes left unfinished were only because we couldn't possibly eat any more. Five adults and one child absolutely stuffed to the gills for $125 including drinks. My cousin lives nearby and they go there quite a bit. Easy to see why.More
