“Great Mexican and New Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

This looks like a place that's been serving the locals forever. The building is smallish, old, and in need of refurbishing but boy is the food and service great! There was not a working sign outside the night we stopped there so we overshot it and came back. We will be back again and will know how to find it.

“Mexican? Sure!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

We stopped through T or C to visit with old friends at the Geronimo Springs Museum and afterwards found the lunch hour approaching. We wandered on through town to Maria's, a local institution that's been slinging doggone fine Mexican food to locals and travelers alike for years. Our lunch was smothered green beef chimichanga for me and chili rellenos for my companion. While the place was slammed but good, the service was prompt and friendly...the meal excellent. So avoid the chain joints on the north end of town and wander south to Maria's. You won't be disappointed.

We live in New Mexico so we are particular about our Mexican Food. This little gem did it up right. Excellent variety of dishes with the perfect amount of heat. Good service and a great value for the money.

“Excellent New Mexican food...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

I live in Truth or Consequences and this is one of the best restaurants in town. It has gone through several ups and downs and is now back with the original owner, Maria, and is back to being excellent....
