They serve no alcohol, which I understand is pretty normal for Utah but this is TripAdvisor so I think it is worth mentioning for people who aren't from Utah. The food is incredibly bland. I asked the waitress for the spicy salsa and was told that I was already eating it. It tasted like straight, not at all spicy, chopped... More

The salsa was tastier than the one at Kankun. Staff also very nice. Loved the log cabin building and location in an old trailer park. It was fairly far from the highway (we were passing through from MT to the Grand Canyon) but loved seeing town on our way to the restaurant.

We had a really hard time finding this place. Our GPS took us into a neighborhood. So beware of that. However the food and service was excellent and would go here again in a heartbeat. Suggestion share a plate - we only ate half of ours and the waitress told us next time we could order off the kids menu.... More

It was the Machaca plate which was delicious. My boyfriend got the Enchiladas with beans, rice and salad and took some home. Huge servings. Cost approx. $10 each. Was great too because we were staying at the campground so just walked to the log cabin for dinner after a long day of driving. Jennifer was very helpful not only with... More

Easy to find, took our food to go. Location was quaint and cozy. It's located in an RV park. The food was delicious! Best rice and beans ever! Would highly recommend.

We were looking for a place to eat that had better ratings than the places near I-15. I found Maria's Cocina. Abuelita Maria is the only one in the kitchen making authentic tacos, tamales, and savory shredded beef. The establishment seats about 20 people -it's a log cabin with a huge fireplace in the center of the room. Maria's is... More
