We like good Mexican food. Maya's is good, not great, but good. It's real signature, however, is as one of the liveliest - and loudest - places I've ever been during happy hour time. On a recent Friday night, the sound level was somewhere in...More

Overall quality of food good, nothing incredibly special but good. Guacamole that is supposed to be spicy, isn't really spicy, love the chips they serve with it. Fish Tacos could be tastier and drinks seem a bit watered down. Would still go back as a...More

This brunch utilizes a tapas format which makes it very favorable to tasting a lot of dishes. The food was pretty good...lots of variety and something for everyone's tastes. The unlimited Margaritas or Mimosas make for a fun party atmosphere.

This is a large, bustling place with music. The Atlantic cod tacos were quite tasty. They could have been a little bigger. I will go back to try other dishes.

We went to brunch and enjoyed every minute of our two hour reservation. Unlimited food and drink and they just bring everything on the menu to the table over for the table to share. You can ask for more of a specific thing as well....More
