They have moved into the VFW for the winter. Open Monday - Thursday for lunch and dinner. We stopped in for lunch to find an expanded menu with lots of great choices. We had the tacos and burrito. Both were great and made from scratch. Ordered drinks with meal and total bill was only $20 Looking forward to eating here... More

Our favorite place for Mexican in Custer! Authentic, & SO delicious! The tacos are wonderful but our favorite is the Ultimate Nachos.!!! Covered outdoor seating behind makes this a relaxing, inexpensive place to eat.!

Mid afternoon decision to get something before we headed out again. Great taste, not sure the cheese Quesadilla was on the grill long enough or it really cooled down fast. My pork burrito with hot salsa was very tasty and plenty. Saved half and had that for late dinner. I would go back and try other items if we had... More

We ate here one afternoon - I had a chicken quesadilla and hubby had a burrito with rice and beans. It was all very good and flavorful. Food came out quickly, good portions, and the two ladies working there were very friendly. There's also a large outdoor covered seating area with several picnic tables. Wish that we would've had an... More

My wife and I went here for lunch while camping In Custer State Park. We have eaten at a few places in Custer and now this is one of our favorites. The portions are large, the flavors are authentic and the prices are reasonable. The salsas are amazing and they sell them by the pint.

Stopped here last night on the way back to our campsite after driving the wildlife loop in Custer State Park. The portions were generous, the price was good but most importantly it was delicious!! My partner was already looking at the menu for breakfast :)

Our 13 year old said it was the best burrito he ever tasted. I had the cheese quesadilla and my husband had the tamales. Definitely order a level lower on your spicy level. We ate in the back at outdoor picnic tables.

We were traveling with our dog and had to find pet friendly places to eat. Maria's is the perfect spot with their outdoor picnic tables. The fajita burritos are excellent. Be sure to stop here for authentic Mexican food.

Sometimes food trucks are hit and miss but not this place! We were able to sit in the back sitting area although it was very warm outside. Ordered the super burrito, nachos and Quesadilla, portions were large and everything tasted great!
