Our 13 year old said it was the best burrito he ever tasted. I had the cheese quesadilla and my husband had the tamales. Definitely order a level lower on your spicy level. We ate in the back at outdoor picnic tables.

We were traveling with our dog and had to find pet friendly places to eat. Maria's is the perfect spot with their outdoor picnic tables. The fajita burritos are excellent. Be sure to stop here for authentic Mexican food.

Sometimes food trucks are hit and miss but not this place! We were able to sit in the back sitting area although it was very warm outside. Ordered the super burrito, nachos and Quesadilla, portions were large and everything tasted great!

The best Mexican cooking I've had this side of the border. Highly recommend you try it. Food Truck par excellence! Nothing else needs to be said but Trip Advisor is insisting on this to be 100 words.

Phenomenal authentic tamales, taco's, nacho's and burrito's and from a food truck!! Reasonable pricing, good size portions, and excellent service. Everyone in my family has not stop talking about it and wishes they could go back. Also visit the VFW and have a beer severed in a frosted mug!

We had read the reviews and were happy Maria's was open when we returned to Custer late after spending the day in the park. The selection was good, food was fresh and everything stayed hot while we took it back to our cabin to eat. It was a great, no-wait, tasty meal for our family.

Stopped here for lunch with a group of seven. We had the tamales, burritos, and tacos. They were all authentic home cooking. Service was fast and staff was very friendly and courteous. We ate outside on picnic tables under a pavilion. We all loved our food.

We got some carry out at Maria's. Service was very fast. Food was a bit spicier than I normally get. This is a popular place, and I see why.

I might have had the best burrito ever the day I stopped here to get lunch on my way to Wind Cave National Park. Mind = blown. Was not expecting what I got from this food truck on the side of the road. The worst part was that I was traveling and couldn't save my leftovers, as I was unable... More

Tables are in the back off the street to sit down. I had the quesadilla and it was good. A bit small for a serving but it was tasty. All in all, a good food truck that deserves a try.
