Excellent New Mexican dinner. However, a warning, they don't take reservations and on a Thursday night at 7PM we had a 90 minute wait. We both can usually handle green chile, but the green chile pork stew was more than either of us Anglos could finish. Awesome but too hot for us. We each had the New Mexican Taco Plate... More

Oh how I love Mexican food!! I usually order cheese enchiladas enchilladas with red chili sauce. I decided to be more Adventurous this time and I ordered the combination plate with taco, chili relleno, tamale, beans and rice, and, the divine cheese enchilladas. Absolutely heaven! Each bite was a delight. The chips and salsa while waiting were delicious. Many Margueritas... More

I had the green chili stew and a burrito and enjoyed every bite. The servers were friendly and helpful. I would go back.

There is better Mexican in town. Portions are large and okay. You can easily split entrees. Service is adequate.

That's all you need to know. But in case you're still not convinced that you need to go here, they also have killer enchiladas and chiles rellenos. Any time relatives or friends visit us in SF we always take people here for some authentic NM cuisine! And...two hundred margaritas. 😉

We have eaten at Maria's several times over the years when we visit Santa Fe and have always enjoyed the family atmosphere and good New Mexican food. Their sopapillas are hand made in their kitchen where you can watch. They melt in your mouth. My husband had their shrimp enchiladas and our grandson kept snitching bites. Our daughter likes the...

If I lived in Santa Fe this would be my regular spot. Very good food, very good service, a casual and completely unpretentious environment. Good value. Love it.

We had eaten at Maria's 3 times last year when staying in Santa Fe for a month and each time had a fantastic meal. Their house margaritas are excellent and reasonably priced and they have over 200 different margs to choose from on the menu. We were staying in Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta with a group and had another... More

Because my son fell in love with this place on his first visit here, and I have a friend locally who always chooses Maria's, I ate there once again recently. While it is now owned by someone else, it remains a great place to enjoy New Mexican food. Well known for the large number of Margarita choices, it is also... More

We seldom return to a restaurant twice while on vacation but this place earned our admiration. Food was delicious and service personable and fast during both our visits (lunch and dinner). It's a casual place with no real curb appeal but inside, it feels like a tried and true place for local great food.
