Loved our waiter, who could see, without asking, that my friend and I had a lot to catch up on, and didn't want fast service. He was so very accommodating. Loved the guacamole and chips, as well as my short ribs and cheese filled chile relleno. So much food ! Glad to take some home to enjoy for lunch. My friend loved her mole chicken. No room for dessert.

Very special to be able to enjoy a dining experience over 2.5 hours without being rushed. Thank you!

First time at this location and the brand held up to its name. Meso Maya has gourmet meals, delicious cocktails and the servers are always so friendly which all make for a great experience.

Service was slow and the fish tacos were almost just fish in name with minute portions. For the money, I will not order these again. Soups are excellent and love the different Margaritas.

We enjoyed another wonderful dining experience with delicious food and drinks, complimented by outstanding service by Adolpho and the waiter with beard (so sorry forgot his name and he has waited on us many times and is excellent ). Marla as always greeted us with her sincere welcome as well.
Thanks so much.

Salsa and chips were great. Quedo was delicious. Margarita was tasty but on the light side. Carne assada was delicious. Mole portion was small for the chicken. Overall I would try it again.

We loved the food. The only problem we had was that there was not enough light to read the menu by older people art a nearby table were using their cellphones as flashlights. Maybe a tad more light? Otherwise, the food was really great.

I love going to Meso Maya when I'm with someone who would identify and appreciate pretty authentic Mexican/Central American food. There are several recognizable classics like cochinita pibil, pollo con mole, pozole, and more. The flavors would be unusual to someone who's only had Tex-Mex and a surprising delight to someone who misses just Mex.

I hesitated to say yes to a recommendation mainly due to the service. The food is quite good, the green sauce is amazing, good margs, good guac, but there are two major issues. One, I believe the owners are homophobic and two, the service has been consistently poor. We waited an unreasonable time for everything. Had to chase him down for refills, check, etc. and he never once checked on us. It's disappointing cuz it's otherwise really good.
