“NOT TEX-MEX AS YOU KNOW IT”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

If you are expecting Tex-Mex like you would get in Central Texas, you won't be getting exactly that. You will, however, get something relatively close. Once we figured out the differences, we have settled on dishes that we like at Los Mayas that might not be our first choice at a true Tex-Mex restaurant.

The cooks are a little heavy-handed with the various sauces. The fajita beef used in dishes like the chimichanga is sometimes a little overdone. The salsa is very mild but we do like spicy salsa so we just deal with it. The chips are good as are the home-made tortillas. If you are looking for a sharp yellow cheese, you will discover that queso blanco is the norm at Los Mayas. If you stick with the standards (enchiladas, tacos, etc.), you will likely leave satisfied.

Overall, the food is pretty average. Since we do go fairly often, we do know a few of the servers. They are always attentive and take good care of our table. We will continue to frequent Los Mayas as long as we are here.

“Average”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Overall I rate this place as average.
Service was very good. Red dip was mild. Quesadilla was fresh but uncut like a large soft taco. There was lots of shredded beef but not much flavor.

The food here was pretty good. The Los Mayas Mexican Grill was a little small inside. They have an kind and attentive staff. I will be going back before I leave!

Pretty good, good margaritas and the food was decent. I would go back if ever in the area again. The beef chimichanga's were really good, flavorful and fast service.
