Our server was great and they have unusual items on their menu. Anything with chicken is better than the beef but really we didn't have anything bad. Highly recommend!!

We ate here for lunch, I had the lunch special which was one cheese taco, one beef enchilada and one beef hardshell taco. It did not include rice or beans. It took a while before our table was brought chips but no salsa was brought. We asked out waiter and it was promptly brought. The chips are multigrain...which actually weren't... More

Great location in Deep Ellum. Service was excellent. Food was above average, but not outstanding. White queso was good, but not better than other restaurants-$6 for a small cup was way over-priced. Chili relleno was good but a little bland (just chicken and cheese inside the pepper); chicken enchiladas were good-the chipotle sauce was tasty but a little greasy. Nice... More

Ok y'all .... This is THE place for lunch. $6 plates? Are you kidding me? Great decorations, great ambience and I assume off the hook tequila drinks. The Mexican Lasagna is the plate... Oh my! You will not be doing anything wrong by coming here. Two thumbs up.

Margaritas were strong, the staff was friendly and the food was good! Had dinner with my sister and we were happy with the service.

This is a cute looking place and from the outside looks amazing. We arrived to a private party at 9:30pm and the kitchen was already closed. They had only 1 bartender. He was not happy and kind of rude. The menu said $3.50 for margaritas, but he repeatedly insisted they were $5. We were willing to give them a chance,... More

My friends and I luckily found this place online and decided to have Saturday brunch there. Best decision we made! I'm all for $1 mimosas and chips and queso! The food was great, the wait staff was so nice, and you can't beat low-priced drinks! The location is perfect I think, and the fact that they have latin music playing... More

Maracas is a great low-key old time favorite. Service is a bit slow at times however always great. My favorite dish is the Green Pasta. I have had the tilapia as well & it was awesome. Their signature queso is the best!

We've been here several times and always found the food to be above average. Not the best in Dallas, far from the worst. This last time (July 2016) was rather disappointing. I ordered the Tex-Mex special: hard shell taco, cheese enchilada with salsa verde, chicken enchilada with sour cream sauce. The beef in the hard taco tasted moldy, or something... More

Had an amazing time at Maracas! Our group of 15 was easily accommodated regardless of short notice. The restaurant is large and lovely. Our group quickly hopped onto the $4.50 Sunday drink specials. The drinks were tasty and pretty strong! Let's just say we ordered quite a few..... Chips and salsa were great and were constantly refilled. We also ordered... More
