Super picky about Mexican food so it's difficult for me to give perfect marks. The food is great. The ambiance is definitely geared for a lunch visit. I stop in a 2-3 times a year. It's inexpensive.

The smells of delicious Mexican food fill your senses when you enter the restaurant, but the magic ends there. The Fajitas I had were okay. the steak was little tough and the spices not very spicy. Perhaps a different dish would have been better.

That by far was the worst tasting Mexican food we have ever had. Buffet was awful not worth the $12.00 dollars.

Every time we are in Saginaw we stop in and eat at Maria's. Always have had great and friendly service. The breakfast tacos are the best and the buffet is outstanding as well. Big bang for you buck at this establishment. Will be back for many future visits!!!

Lunch ordered the buffet, which includes refilled drinks, for just over $9 total. Enough soft/hard, corn/flour tortillas plus nacho chips to fix just about any of your dream tacos, burritos or tostadas. Even had two deserts. Wasn't the best mexican food I ever had but it was very authentic tasting. Will return again (some of the menu items I saw... More

We've tried this restaurant several times. There is just no reason to go back. The food is mediocre at best and there's no atmosphere. Try something else.

We were disappointed in the buffet (not a lot of selection) so we ordered off the menu .. I ordered the combination dinner and was not disappointed .. Along with prompt service it tasted delicious and the portions were HUGE! My husband ordered the fajitas and he said the meat was so tough he couldn't chew it. Prices were reasonble.

Their food is authentic as I know it and the buffet is a good value for $8.99 but lacked attention and some well encouraged compliments like sour cream, nacho cheese and guacamole. Enchiladas tray was not refilled during our visit and the crew was sent out to clean up around the buffet. Several choices of meat were always available and... More

Visited Maria's again last week. Was not sure on the buffet as I had it years ago at the old place and it was just so so. But decided to give it a try again. Cheese enchiladas were very good although I was hesitant to do them. She has two diced beef bowls one with her traditional gravy and another... More
