We had lunch at Maria's and while for food was good the service was just OK. Many of the plates don't come with rice and beans which other establishments in Aiken offer. We enjoyed the spicy salsa and chips. They also offer a complementary bean,...More

Maria’s is always a busy place, and for good reason. The menu has many options, the food is always top notch, and you can get a seat quick. Service is always on point. This is an easy choice

Stopped here for a business lunch. We got a new waiter, first day on the job. Service was a little slow because of that. Of course, Maria made it right, and we were able to speak to the young man. Best of luck!

Had lunch there today. Service was good. Food was mediocre. Tried one of their lunch specials. Could've been better.
