Maya's has been serving the best Mexican food in Prescott for 23 years. A tiny hole in the wall on South Montezuma heading out of town, Maya's serves the freshest shrimp in a variety of ways (enchilada, fajita, garlic). It's BYO, has reasonable luncheon specials, and is a bargain in the evening.

This home town hole in the wall restaurant is one of our favorites. Why? Great food and it is cabaret style drinks; as in bring your own booze; wine, beer, whatever. They have openers hanging on the wall near each booth. They have a cook who really takes his time with the chili rellenos; pablano chilies that are roasted and peeled; then mozzarella cheese..the perfect combo. The combination plates are very well priced; the service is good and this place is now gluten free. Tough to believe that is true with how good the home made chips are. This is authentic Mexican food at its finest. Do NOT be put off by the looks of the place; you are there for the food and this is the best. Tip generously, we say.

Came here after reading the TA reviews, and was glad I did! After selecting my meal, the waitress suggested the Tri Tip sandwich instead. ...... yummy!!!!!!

Love the authentic and modest setting.

My only mistake was that they are not licenced, but just run across the street to the beer store BEFORE you come in for a meal ....

It has been a few years since I've lived in Prescott but Maya's is still the best and most authentic Mexican cuisine I have found on this side of the border. The staff is friendly and courteous and very accommodating. The mole is the real deal. The guac and salsa is legit. The potato, cactus, eggplant burrito is one of the best vegetarian Mexican dishes I have ever had. I seriously miss this place after having moved away several years ago and I hope nothing changes until I can return.

Great food. VERY FRIENDLY PEOPLE. Amazingly satisfying Mexican food. Great carnitas. Bring your own BEER. Sometimes due to kitchen venting and overdue maintenance, oily smell in dining room. Only once could I not take it. Great for carry out as well. Hope motels in area support it.
