This is our go to place for Mexican! This is true Mexican Cuisine so it is not as spicy as Tex-Mex. The kitchen is willing to customize orders within reason. Wednesdays are a great night as they have $1 margaritas with the purchase of an...More

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....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...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!...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...More
