I love this place it looks like a hole in the wall but come to realize those are the ones that have the most favorable foods. I ordered a burrito and it was just finger licking good. The staff is so responsive to everyone's needs as work well together.

My husband and I full time rv and always look for a locals style spot to eat along our travels. The carne asada chimi was delicious. Very crisp outside, a little difficult to eat, but the meat inside was superb. Just simply great home style cooking flavor. We'll definitely be going back especially since it is in walking distance of... More

We stopped here for dinner after a long day of driving. It was very busy...lots of people getting take out. You can also dine in. The staff was pleasant and the food was good. Everything is made on site including the tortillas. My husband had a tamale and an enchilada....he preferred the enchilada. I had an enchilada and chili relleno.... More

My husband and I had high hopes for St. Mary's Mexican Food after reading a glowing review in Edible Baja. Being huge fans of Sonoran style cuisine we were excited to give it a try. The restaurant is small with limited seating and does a brisk dine in and take out business. We got to St. Mary's Mexican Food around... More

I've been going to this hole-in-the-wall for years and only ever had one thing....the chorizo breakfast burrito. Love it! Flavorful homemade tortillas blanket the perfect ratio of chorizo, beans, eggs and potatoes. Oh, man...thinking about those burritos when not in Tucson is absolute torture. I've searched high and low for something comparable in other cities...I'm not saying it doesn't exist,... More

My wife and I picked up some burros, enchiladas and tamales recently. It was our first visit to St. Marys. Upon entering, there are large menus on the wall, and on a large flat screen T.V., to guide you through the ordering process. There are six or seven tables to sit at if one chooses to eat at the restaurant.... More

St Mary's is a favorite of the locals. The food is authentic Mexican Food, tasty and the servings are very good. You can eat in or have a take out. The busiest time is probably lunch, as a lot of the business people from downtown eat there. The tortillas are homemade and they are the originals, very large and very... More

I have eaten the food many times and have never had a bad meal. When you mention that you are getting lunch from St. Mary's at work you are suddenly getting food for at least 1/2 dozen or more people. They have great Tacos and tortillas!

Tortillas were good. I hated that everything was on styrofoam. There was styrofoam even I you were eating in. Food was good but a little too salty.
