This place was very busy on Saturday night, but we had a reservation. The bartender took great care of us and made delicious margaritas. All the staff were very friendly and the food was good. I would recommend the carne asada and stuffed tacos. We...More

The standards here have plummeted. We ordered fajitas which came with dried out shells. The onions and peppers were still raw, some even still cold. We mentioned it to our waitress twice and she just said sorry. Horrible. My first clue should have been when...More

Great food and outstanding service, even with a busy Parents weekend at Missouri State. Waitress was pleasant, efficient and timely. Never ran out of drinks and food was great.

Came here for the first time and was happy with food and service. Nothing special but nice place. We recommend if looking for something not to expense downtown.

I like maria's but its not remotely authentic. They serve excellent american style mexican food. The guac is good as are the fried tacos. Get your burrito downtown style for sure. Not the best place for kids though as their kids menu is lacking.

My friends invited me to their favorite Mexican Restaurant, Maria's! They told me about the fried tacos so I ordered them and a cheese quesadilla. Both were excellent. The fried taco was crispy and light and the quesadilla was yummy. Our server, a lovely young...More
