The service and food is very bad. The Margaritas are passable but pricy. I prefer driving a little to much better food. Sorry, that's all I can say.

On vacation to Lake Travis this summer to visit family, we opted for carry out food one night. The choices in the area are very limited. We went to Maria's and ordered six meals for takeout. Everyone agreed this was the worst Mexican food we had ever eaten. Please, don't make the mistake we did. You would be better off... More

A few years ago, this was a great Mexican food restaurant. Fast forward to today, and it's as if it was a completely different place to eat. The queso dip is watered down, the service is poor, the prices are up, and the portions are noticeably smaller. One of the people in our party ordered shrimp enchiladas, and the shrimp... More

Went here on the spur of the moment after a long day. Shared the chicken, cheese & beef enchiladas that were kind of blah. Waiter did not bring an extra plate although we had said we would be sharing. Requested lemons that never came and then waited and waited for our check.

I've been in there a couple of times in the past, but have never eaten. Some time back I had walked in to ask a question of the owner and the place had an odd smell. I went back again another time to meet with some folks and the place was actually pleasant, so I thought I'd take a chance... More

I'm amazed that anybody thought this was great Mexican food - it can't be stellar if you rank lower than the Domino's pizza in a tiny little town like Lago Vista. When we showed up we were greeted by the host and when we asked if the food was good, he responded, "Um...yeah...I guess...some people in Lago Vista like it."... More

The last time I went to Maria's for dinner I was very disappointed because for some weird reason they put liquid cheese (queso) on my enchiladas instead of red sauce. Well the owners responded to my review and I am here to let you and them know that we went back for dinner last Friday and everything was back to... More

We had margaritas, the queso appetizer and steak quesadillas so we didn't have a full meal, but what we had we enjoyed. Staff was friendly, food came out quickly. Margaritas were a little sweet for us as we prefer the kind made with lime juice, these had sweet and sour, but were still drinkable as we finished the whole pitcher.

Usually, a margarita will help with the palatability of the food but even the margarita tasted stale and like it was out of a can. The food is scary and I only ordered the nachos. My husband had the combo plate and did not eat half of it. This is a man who is NOT picky about food.

Haven't tried the margaritas yet, but the food was pretty good. Actually the salsa and flan were wonderful. The service was very good. The restaurant was clean, welcoming, and quaintly decorated. The prices are very reasonable. It seemed wrong for the bar TV to be playing football instead of fútbol, but oh well. We'll definitely go back since it's convenient... More
