Huevos Problano with black beans...yummm. Sueno de maya as my brunch beverage. So good together. Josue was our bartender/waiter, so fun and personable. Enjoyable

Friends recommend this place, 3 years ago was my first time here and last I ever tried any other Mexican restaurant!!! I have been there numerous times and have never been disappointed with the food or service, try the carne asada tacos, salmon is fantastic, my favorite place for date night.

Food was good, drinks were good, but even after telling the bartender (traveling alone, I normally sit at the bar) I don't eat fish, that's all he kept recommending. The menu was VERY limited. I couldn't even get fajitas of any type.

Stumbled upon this little restaurant and found a gem. Only sampled several dishes but, found all but one to have wonderful flavors beyond what I would have expected. Talked to several other people that I know who dined there that night from our group and their experience was similar to mine. The skirt steak was fabulous, the rice and beans... More

Maya consistently serves absolutely fantastic Mexican food -- no chimichangas in sight! The tacos compare with the best that Austin, Texas taquerias have to offer (we were just there last week), and you don't have to get them from a food truck! Sure, it's an unexpected location (next to an ice skating rink near the mall), but it's definitely worth... More

I'm not the foodie type....I just know I need it to sustain myself....but Maya is a great Mexican restaurant. I have been here numerous times; although not lately, but I have never had a "bad" anything here. The food was always good, the service was great, the staff were very knowledgeable and friendly, and the drinks were on point!

lunch today for 4. Place is empty, and we arrived at 12:45 - hmmmm. Out of ribs, out of plantains ( which, after I spoke to the front desk man, complaining about how long the food was taking to arrive, they found ), and took over 30" for our orders to arrive. No explanation, no apology, and this was with... More

We went here for a late lunch/early dinner. We were not disappointed overall. The standouts were the fresh chips and fresh salsa and the carne asada. My hubby had the fish tacos and he thought they were tasty. He also got the cerviche and said it was okay but that most likely he would not order it again.
