You won't find better Mexican food served by nicer people for such a great price anywhere else. Make sure you get the fruit filled churros, too!

We tried their food truck while at Knee Deep Brewery. It was ok. Took about 15 minutes. Prices were a little high. The tacos were good. The nachos used a fake cheese out of a can or at least that is what it seemed like. Our son liked the burrito. No one got sick and we were full. It served... More

We ate at Maria's for the first time. This is a very no frills food establishment. You order from the counter and serve yourself for chips, forks, etc. The table are wood picnic type. It really reminded me of small restaurants in Mexico, which is a plus. I ordered a carnitas taco and carnitas enchilada with rice and beans. I... More

I read some of the negative reviews and can't understand them. I have eaten here at least a dozen times and maybe even 20 and I've always gotten the best carnitas tacos and carne asada burritos ever. Maria is fantastic and her granddaughter is as well. The place reminds me of an authentic restaurant in Mexico. I agree that the... More

Tacos! We've been eating Maria's tamales when she was making them and pies at Machado Orchards. Then tacos out of the trailer. Now we continue to eat tacos and tamales. I love the horchada

Maria's taco is one of the best mexican restaurants in the area and for miles. Maria is in the back cooking away most days. She is so friendly and will make experience memorable. It's Auburn hidden gem. A most stop by and have a meal.

First and foremost, I'm extremely disappointed. The outside patio was probably the only decent part about this place. I had to settle for this place because the "Flaming Burrito" was closed for the day. The inside of this place was dark, like really dark and abandoned. There were customers, and everyone seemed to be enjoying their food, but the Mexican... More

We ate at Maria's twice during a visit to Auburn and we want to love it. Really, we do. Visit #1 was ok, food was good, the patio quiet and empty tables clear. Visit #2- The chips and salsa station was empty, they filled it with chips and some chopped tomatoes with very little else in it for salsa. My... More

I'm not a food-snob, I'm a restaurant-snob. I'll forgive mediocre food any day if it's served well in a lovely atmosphere. My restaurant preferences are based on ambiance and service - I like nice lighting, a pretty view, and an inspired wine list. And Maria's is far from that (after all, it's located in a rundown parking lot between a... More
