This is one of the best inexpensive sit down restaurants in the Inland Empire. The cabbage salsa is fantastic!

Good food, large portions but lines to be seated can be long and service slow. Go when you are hungry and not in a hurry!

Love the food here. The service often is just excruciatingly slow which makes it not the best idea for a lunch place. Can't go wrong with the taste though.

Every time I come to this area, I have to eat at Maria's. My go-to meal is the vegetarian wet burrito. I love it! The staff is always very friendly too. I can't wait to come back!

Went here with a buddy for lunch and really enjoyed it. I've gone back a few times. I would recommend it if you want a good Mexican restaurant.

If you have ever been to a home where there are extended family members all cooking your favorite meals (such as you remember in childhood) Maria's is the place. The aroma from the kitchen is a delight. Home made, fresh Hispanic food will bring you back time after time,

This was our first visit to Maria's Cafe. We were told that the food was good and service was slow. This is truly authentic Mexican food, prepared to perfection. The menu has a wide verity at very reasonable prices. Service was good, we received our orders within 10 minutes. This appears to be a very popular local restaurant.

Good beans, rice, and food. All the chicken dishes highly recommended... $9.99 gets you a very delicious and satisfying meal. Enchiladas and... More

Have been coming here for years and before I moved from the area I used to eat here atleast 2x a week! Food is good and cant beat the prices.

You can tell this is a favorite spot. They have lots of regular customers. The food was very good and they had a surprisingly good margarita too. Giving it only an average rating because I have to say the service was pretty slow the night we were there, but I understand they had an unexpected table of 25 come in... More
