My coworkers and I have to moderate how often we come to El Maz. The service is fast for lunch, the restaurant is always clean and staff is friendly. Best of all the food is great! My only complaint is that shrimp isn't served during lunch (the shrimp quesadillas are my favorite). I don't visit without getting queso. For lunch... More

We ate there last night and left happy, full, and with leftovers. The server was very attentive. We had the beef Chimichanga and the Mazamolcajete. Both came with beans, rice, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and guacamole. The chimichanga was fantastic, even better than the three we tried in Arizona, where chimichangas got their start. The volcano bowl kept the Mazamolcajete... More

So the beer specials are $1.25 and a soft drink is $1.70? The cola was non-descript. It didn't taste like Pepsi or Coke-just weak, so stick with beer. The refried beans and rice were OK, but barely warm. The rest of the food was hot and well prepared. In Bowling Green, there are several Mexican restaurants I like better, but... More

I'm a native Texan so I'm really picky about my Mexican food! El Maz is pretty dang good. Not everything on their menu is "authentic" Mexican food but it's delicious. The staff is knowledgeable, courteous & prompt, the food is hot and fresh. I love to visit when I'm homesick for Texas!

A good Mexican restaurant with the expected items on the menu. The service was good, and we got some good recommendations on food to try. The chips, however, were not good. The salsa was good, but the chips seemed either stale or lacked the right flavor. The quesadilla and taquitos were excellent though. Overall a good experience, and worthy of... More

I have eaten at this restaurant 4 to 6 dozen times, the food is always well-prepared and tasty. The service is always impeccable. I have tried many many dishes on their menu nearly all of them and have never got a bad dish. There's shrimp dishes are out of this world their fish always seems to be fresh. And when... More

Was looking for a mexican restaurant on my first visit to Bowling Green. SO glad that I chose this place. Ample parking in the shopping center and the restaurant is deceptively larger than it appears from outside. Pleasant seating and nice water feature at the entrance. The portions are large and very reasonably priced. The mazamolcajete was SO delicious...Chicken, grilled... More
