I have been going to Maria's since it opened about 3 or so years ago. . . and each and every time I love it more and more. Everything on the menu is out of this world! My favorites are the "Ropa Vieja" and the "Pollo Verde" There is an extensive list of house special drinks that you won't be able to get anywhere else. . . The Golden Maria is the house special margarita and is unforgettable!!! Also try the special sangria. . it is to die for! Just make sure you save room for dessert too, the fried ice cream is great!
