This restaurant is located downtown. The restaurant smells nice. Even the bathroom. I ordered the Spinach and Portabelo Enchiladas. It did not disappoint. The service was fast and friendly. The food is reasonably priced.

Went here for a business lunch and had a great experience! The fajitas were great and the other people in my group were also pleased with their selection of food. The chips were very good! Served warm and crispy along with very tasty salsa. Will...More

The standards here have plummeted. We ordered fajitas which came with dried out shells. The onions and peppers were still raw, some even still cold. We mentioned it to our waitress twice and she just said sorry. Horrible. My first clue should have been when...More

Great food and outstanding service, even with a busy Parents weekend at Missouri State. Waitress was pleasant, efficient and timely. Never ran out of drinks and food was great.

Came here for the first time and was happy with food and service. Nothing special but nice place. We recommend if looking for something not to expense downtown.

I like maria's but its not remotely authentic. They serve excellent american style mexican food. The guac is good as are the fried tacos. Get your burrito downtown style for sure. Not the best place for kids though as their kids menu is lacking.

My wife and our 2 adult children had lunch here a couple of weeks ago. The food was very good but the service was excellent.

We went for lunch on 2/13. It was not busy, but the service, while initially prompt, was almost non-existent. I had the Seafood taco and enchilada (Mario), and was disappointed. The "seafood" was the imitation crab found at the supermarket. My husband had the shredded...More
