My wife and I used to frequent this place in the past, but have noticed a decline in quality over the years. Our food was cold and slapped together with little to no care or spooned out of a can. We also noticed the smaller...More

Food is always consistent, waiters are always friendly. Prices are fair, Good variety to choose from, also alcoholic drinks and deserts. We always order large cup of cheese dip with chips. We have ordered anything that wasn't good.

My experience was tainted from the outset as I walked through the smoking section to get to a no smoking area that was not completely isolated. Good food and good service,

The gentleman at the Towneplace Suites recommended Marias and he did a very good job! Fajitas were excellent! My son had the enchiladas and loved them, chips, queso and hot sauce were all very good! Good Service and good food!!

I'll admit my expectations for Maria's were pretty high after reading some of the reviews but to me it was just another average Mexican restaurant in a city with oh sooooooo many options . It wasn't bad for being in a strip mall though.

Maria's is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. They are reasonably priced and the food is always good.

It was just okay. The authenticity of the strip mall mexican eatery leaves a lot to be desired - more over the overwhelming odor of cig smoke is disgusting. Once you're in the NS section it was bearable. The food was so-so but defo good...More
