In the Hussel and Bussel of Maybank Rd. and River Rd. this is a treasure to find. Plenty of seating, excellent menu, good service and very good food.

Always very predictable and well served. Very affordable and the fish tacos are just delicious. Cold drafts in frosty mugs take the edge away from a tough day.

The 4 of us had a fantastic dinner at this Mexican restaurant. It's clean, very nicely decorated and has great food. Service was a little slow at first but quickly got better. I attributed it to being busy. The shrimp fajitas, chimichanga and enchiladas rancherias were excellent. Nice margaritas too. Prices were fair. Total bill with tip for 4 was... More

We have been here a couple of times and the food has been OK. But tonight we sat sir 15 minutes with only menus. A couple was seated across from us and another behind us, both after we came in. They had the same waiter who brought them chips and salsa, served them drinks and took their dinner orders while... More

We were attracted to Maria's by the Trip Advisor reviews, but we were underwhelmed. The lunch menu looks good and the portions were a nice lunch size. However, the street tacos just weren't that good (we tried all flavors). The corn tortillas were bland and dry and the fillings were a little chewy. The best was the tomatillo sauce (which... More

When vacationing in the area, my husband and I always try to eat at Maria's Mexican Grill at least once each trip. This time around, we also brought with us cousins who were visiting from back home. As always, the food is very good although our service could have been better. It could have been that we arrived a little... More

As we live on Johns Island, Maria's has become a 2-3 times a month staple. Consistently good Mexican food, generous drinks and a great staff make this a great spot for a no fuss dining experience. Very kid friendly (may have to rent some to bring) it is obvious Maria's is a favorite for parents. Stop in for a fish... More

We had the munchies for Nachos and Rita's and googled to find the favorite Mexican restaurant in John's Island, just twenty minutes from Kiawah Island. Boy were they spot on right! It's a cozy restaurant in a small shopping center but you could tell the locals love it as the outdoor deck was full and the inside was full in... More

I have chosen to eat at Maria's a couple of times. You need to have time when you go as the service is NOT speedy.

First time with the family, the Texas dip is off the chain, everything was good, the food came out on time and was all presented beautifully. Will be back. Service was just as decent as any other Mexican places. I don't have any complaints. 5 thumbs up! Not to mention the decor is super cute and clean.
