After seeing Maria's on TV we added it to our must-do list during our vacation. We ended up stopping here twice and taking it back to our rental home. Good food, good value, pleasant service. There are street parking spaces all around. Our three young children enjoyed their tacos too. A hidden gem.

Maria's is a destination for authentic Mexican food right in downtown Custer. The tamales are my favorite, though I love everything I've tried there so far! Also amazing is the chocolate flan and the plantains with caramel and ice cream. Maria is a wonderful lady and will most likely be your server. Enjoy!

They have moved into the VFW for the winter. Open Monday - Thursday for lunch and dinner. We stopped in for lunch to find an expanded menu with lots of great choices. We had the tacos and burrito. Both were great and made from scratch. Ordered drinks with meal and total bill was only $20 Looking forward to eating here... More

Mid afternoon decision to get something before we headed out again. Great taste, not sure the cheese Quesadilla was on the grill long enough or it really cooled down fast. My pork burrito with hot salsa was very tasty and plenty. Saved half and had that for late dinner. I would go back and try other items if we had... More

We ate here one afternoon - I had a chicken quesadilla and hubby had a burrito with rice and beans. It was all very good and flavorful. Food came out quickly, good portions, and the two ladies working there were very friendly. There's also a large outdoor covered seating area with several picnic tables. Wish that we would've had an... More

My wife and I went here for lunch while camping In Custer State Park. We have eaten at a few places in Custer and now this is one of our favorites. The portions are large, the flavors are authentic and the prices are reasonable. The salsas are amazing and they sell them by the pint.

Stopped here last night on the way back to our campsite after driving the wildlife loop in Custer State Park. The portions were generous, the price was good but most importantly it was delicious!! My partner was already looking at the menu for breakfast :)

Our 13 year old said it was the best burrito he ever tasted. I had the cheese quesadilla and my husband had the tamales. Definitely order a level lower on your spicy level. We ate in the back at outdoor picnic tables.
