My boyfriend and I got lost trying to find Skyway Bowl awhile ago and stumbled across this restaurant as we went further and further down Rainier. We didn't try it then, but he kept wanting to go back and give it a go. I'm naturally a little dubious about sitdown Mexican restaurants in Seattle because every other one I've been to is fair to horrible.
Saturday night, we headed over to Maya's. The restaurant had full-on Mexican restaurant decor with bright colors and murals and fake pyramids. Great! As soon as we sat down, they brought out chips along with salsa and beans. The salsa was great, the chips were homemad, and the beans were a nice touch - I hadn't really thought about dipping chips in salsa AND beans before. It was yummy.
I ordered the Tacos a la Maya or something like that. Listed in the menu as "the way we eat them in Mexico". The tacos had shredded beef, freshy fried hard corn tortilla shells, and homemade guacamole. The tacos were yummy and the rice and beans that accompanied the dish were top tier. My boyfriend had the Carne Asada which he liked too.
Overall, the portions are big and the prices are right. The food is tasty, too. If you feel like having a sitdown Mexican meal, this is the place to go.
