I've dined at Maria's about six or seven times over the past couple of years and while their service has always been pretty slow, it's gotten progressively worse each time I go there. If you're going to have an all-you-can-drink brunch at your restaurant, you need to have waiters that are actually bringing drinks to the tables. The place wasn't even very busy and we had to order our drinks several times before they were brought to us. The drink special only lasts for an hour -- stay on top of the orders.

Also, although fried ice cream is on their dessert menu, the last three times I dined there I was told they had run out.

It's a shame because I do enjoy the food and the ambience is nice but with service that bad, I do not think I'll be going back there.

Came for dinner and had a nice experience. The restaurant is small itself, but had a nice bar with at least 8 seats. The menu is pretty large and all the prices are reasonable. I got the guac and a chicken burrito. The guac was super fresh and very nice. The burrito was great - excellent size and very simple and delicious. Loved it. I hope to go back and try some of their cocktails next time. We went during a busy time so the food took a little longer than expected, but I thought it was worth the wait!

We began our dinner with delicious Margaritas and wonderful guacamole. The service was extremely attentive. The shrimp ceviche was fantastic and the tacos and burritos were tasty.
I definitely will come back here.
