This is truly your best bet for great tasting Mexican food! The sour cream enchiladas are terrific! We come here regularly and appreciate the service and selections of food. I would skip on the queso but everything else has proved to be good!

I've been a fan of Maria's for 5+ years, at least since before they moved from the old San Marcos location on Hwy 5 to their current spot on 121. Delicious traditional Tex-Mex favorites, some unique house specialties. Sometimes I just go to get a...cheeseburger and chips with salsa. They make a decent burger for a Mexican food place. The salsa is one of my favorites and with the thin and crispy chips, I always order extra. Just a great local place. Consistent, affordable. And good dine in or carryout. Always worth the visit.More

We had Mexican food for Mother's Day, and it was absolutely delicious! Picked our freshly made order up, and it was still warm when we got home with it. Looking forward even more to their dining room reopening!

We moved to Melissa 6 months ago and have eaten at Maria’s multiple times. Every time the food has been very good. When we have company come in, we always eat at Maria’s and everyone we’ve taken has been impressed. In addition, their prices are...great! You can’t beat it!More

My wife's birthday is April 17. She wanted Mexican for lunch. Called Maria's to see if they were open. They were for take out only. Limited to 4 persons in order area due to lock down directive. Waited about 5 minutes to order. They had...their normal lunch menu. Placed our orders. 10 minutes later it was ready. No hassle. Probably serving more customers than they did before the panic. Service even faster than before. Same delicious Mexican food. Thanks for staying open during the lock down! Looking forward to a normal sit down lunch. Larry and his Happy Birthday bride.More

Went here from recommendation from Trip Advisor. Service was great. Food fresh & hot. Plate was still warm when I got to go box. Salsa has good little kick. Definitely will be back.

My family loves this place. They have great food at a great value. I'll admit that nothing I've tried has been worlds better than other places, but it's right up there with the best and never disappoints. It's so awesome to have such a great...and reliable place so close to home. My favorite is the fajitas. My husband and I usually get fajitas for 2, combo beef and chicken and I give our toddler my rice and beans. My older daughter says their burger is the best haha.More

We live about 15 miles from Marias. This is our favorite mexican restaurant. They have a very good lunch menu at $5.95. More than one can eat comfortably. Delicious! This place is behind the Exon station off of HWY 121 neat the traffic light. A...little difficult to get to, but worth the trouble. Always busy for lunch. Excellent staff. Tables kept clean and quick seating. Food delivered quickly. Mild salsa and fresh chips while waiting. Good flavored food. Not as harsh as most Tex-Mex. Tastier than California Mexican. Good for snow birds and Texicans. An oasis in a bible belt desert. They have a bar. You can get good European beer (I like Heineken) as well as the usual US and Mexican brews. Prices reasonable. Mexican food needs beer for dessert.More

Restaurant pretty full in early afternoon. Food was good, enchilada and Chile rellano. Service good. Restaurant clean. The negative was marguarita. Tasted too limey. Tasted like a kids drink.
