Description: Located in Oak Park, Maya Del Sol is just minutes away from the city and surrounding suburbs of Chicago. Prepare to be whisked away by the exciting flavors and tastes from some of Latin America's most vibrant countries. The unique menu is complemented by an inventive cocktail menu and extensive wine list. Relax on one of the best patios in the Chicago area when weather permits or dine in one of our two comfortable dining rooms. If you prefer, pull up a stool in the lively bar area, which has live music on some Friday nights from 9pm - midnight. Join us in celebrating numerous special occasions throughout the year, including Mother's & Father's Day, Cinco de Maya, Day of the Dead and many more. Celebrating a birthday or anniversary? Maya is also available for private parties - on or off-site - perfect for weddings, rehearsals and showers.

“Where nachos reign supreme”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Latin fare with a flair, everything we ate at Maya was unique and tasty. The nachos were topped with a type of soft, pot roast-type beef. You must add a side of their wonderful guacamole. My wife loved her late Sunday morning french toast. You will want to call ahead for reservations but do not miss when you visit Oak Park.

“Great food that is not like anything else you will find in town”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Maya Del Sol has a very different menu, using foods found not only in Mexico but in the Mayan area of South America. The food is unique and always delicious. Great drinks and a good selection of wines. I have been here numerous times, and plan to go back many more. I was featured on "Check Please" on WTTW, Channel 11. The patio is great in the good weather, and in the fall and spring, if it gets chilly, they light up the fire pit and bring around blankets so you can sit outside a bit longer. Friendly wait staff. Well worth the visit. Reasonably priced, but not cheap.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Maya Del Sol is definitely above the ordinary. Although it seems to be thought of as Mexican, the cuisine is more Caribbean, largely due to the influence of a Jamaican chef. The staff is wonderfully well trained and attentive, with a thourough knowledge of the dishes and the appropriate beverage accompaniment. Parking can be a bit dicey, but valet service is available. Definitely recommended!

“Love the food and atmosphere”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

The menu here changes seasonally, and is always good. I especially enjoy the outdoor patio during warm weather. The drinks are very good as well...not watered down, overly sweet, or too strong. Servers are attentive but not imposing. I really enjoy dinners here.

“Go.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Blue Cheese Fillet was amazing. Never thought I'd order a fillet at a Mexican restaurant, glad I took the risk. Wine list was adequate and decently priced. Beautiful outside dinning area. Service was knowledgeable but our server was on his own clock.
