“Worth the trip off the strip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We wanted authentic Mexican food. What we got was authentic Mexican food at an unbeatable price with superb service. The tamales are amazing. They are large so you can make a meal out of them or do what we did and share a few as appetizers. The margaritas are also large and delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant for very good food at an incredible value in Las Vegas.

“Dona Maria's - Authentic Mexican Libations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

As a local, we are always looking for great ethnic restaurants. We found Dona Maria's (or Tamales as we've come to know it) years ago. It has never let us down with quality, quantity, or choice of great Mexican food and beverages. Their Sangria is fantastic! Try it out and say Ole'...

“Good Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Whenever we find ourselves in Las Vegas, we always make a stop at Dona Maria's. They are known for their Tamales, and they have never let us down. Their other items are very good as well. Good service at either location.

“Good, but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Food as tasty, service excellent and the restaurant was very clean.
Tamales were filling, but rather bland.
With so many other choices, we probably would not return.

“Tamales I've been looking for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

Grew up in southern California but haven't lived there for years so always on lookout for great tamales while traveling. Found them!!! Moist masa, just right amount, & perfect firmness to hold together without being tough. Plenty of meat & very tasty. Everything else we ate was wonderful too: chips, salsa, taco, chile relleno, soup, rice, beans, horchata - truly all was consistently great. Service was very attentive & everyone worked as a team. Will absolutely eat here any time I'm in town.
