My friends and I luckily found this place online and decided to have Saturday brunch there. Best decision we made! I'm all for $1 mimosas and chips and queso! The food was great, the wait staff was so nice, and you can't beat low-priced drinks! The location is perfect I think, and the fact that they have latin music playing... More

Maracas is a great low-key old time favorite. Service is a bit slow at times however always great. My favorite dish is the Green Pasta. I have had the tilapia as well & it was awesome. Their signature queso is the best!

We've been here several times and always found the food to be above average. Not the best in Dallas, far from the worst. This last time (July 2016) was rather disappointing. I ordered the Tex-Mex special: hard shell taco, cheese enchilada with salsa verde, chicken enchilada with sour cream sauce. The beef in the hard taco tasted moldy, or something... More

Had an amazing time at Maracas! Our group of 15 was easily accommodated regardless of short notice. The restaurant is large and lovely. Our group quickly hopped onto the $4.50 Sunday drink specials. The drinks were tasty and pretty strong! Let's just say we ordered quite a few..... Chips and salsa were great and were constantly refilled. We also ordered... More

We went here for lunch while walking around Deep Elllum The Plato Guiso de pureco was excellent. I had a spinach quesadilla with auto sauce that was probably the best I've ever had fantastic. You must come and enjoy bon appétit

I ate at Maracas with my boyfriend when we were staying in Dallas for a long weekend. We had great service and listened to fabulous music, but, unfortunately, the food was not good. To start off, our waitress was an absolute rock-star. I had an awful headache when we arrived, and I asked her if there was any drug store... More

Had a great birthday party there on Friday night. Not enough staff to serve our big party, even though they were warned. The band was great and kept us grooving and entertained. We shared the white queso dip, which was good, but not great, the Tilapia in capers and olives tasted really good but the Ceviche on tostada was just... More

My husband and I went here on our first night in Dallas for the queso dip and a margarita. The service was great, bartender was very friendly, everyone there was helpful. The queso dip was great! The atmosphere is not trendy, it's pretty authentic atmosphere with a bar and lots of restaurant seating. We went back for brunch New Years... More

Although, to my boyfriend and I, the food was pretty average and nothing to brag about, the service was outstanding. My boyfriend had the fajitas which he described as not very good. The tilapia I ordered had a wonderful charcoal flavor to it. I replaced the veggies that came with my plate for refried beans which had no flavor. My... More

We had eaten at Maracas several times over the past year and have found each meal to be very good. They run specials almost every night of the week and some can save some serious cash if you choose what they're offering. The house Margaritas are good and very reasonably priced. The entrees are tasty and filling. My wife particularly... More
