Mexican food is my favorite but this place looks a little beat up, it's expensive and it's not that great.

When I first went 3 or 4 years ago the food was good. The last several times I have gone the food was watery, had almost no flavor and the service is pretty bad. They come to your table only when necessary, if you try to flag them down, they usually wave and go off doing other things and don't... More

I have been here a few times during my 18 months of traveling to Aiken for work. My project wrapped up this week. We were there Sunday night. Kind of late around 8pm. They were not busy when we got there but wow they just kept coming. I was surprised. The food is still good. Drinks are good. Their sangria... More

Had a poor experience. We Ordered quacamole which was actually very good, as were the beans and cheese dip and the salsa. However, the waitstaff never returned to the tablet to take our order. EVER! We finally just got up and left! The food may have potential, but I'll never know because I will never go back! There was no... More

The tacos and combination plates are consistently delicious every time we go!!! The pitchers of margaritas are some of the best in Aiken!! Highly recommend this restaurant!

Average Mexican food. Nothing special and nothing bad either. One recommendation I do have is to hire more staff. One waiter was taking care of about 15 tables at a time. He was constantly moving, bussing table, getting drinks, food, checks. I felt bad for him.

Casual, moderately priced spot for Mexican food which was full of local diners. Very helpful and prompt service. Guacamole a bit overpriced (large side dish over 8$) but otherwise we would go back when in the area.

I've been coming here ever since they've opened and am always satisfied with the food. The texas margaritas are a favorite and everything is affordable.

Today I just wanted some real Mexican Taco's & that's what I had. Wasn't the best nor far from the worst. The fajitas & Taco's were pretty good & their cheese dip was great. Margaritas weren't near as good as they looked but, I didn't go there to drink. For the money everything was okay. Servers seemed a little slow... More

Weekend lunch at Maria's was wort the visit. Food was better than expected, not knowing what to expect. But as I walked in I guessed it was good as the place was very busy. The chips, salsa and Maria's dip was very good.

Thank Ron B
