The only two exiting things about Maria Maria are: the nice Website and Its owned by Santana. After that I thing that the experience that I had there was really bad. I had a horrible service and the food was cold when served. Also the flavors was not the best, you could eat in 1000s of places in Austin better for half the money. Really overprice for what it is.Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch

drinks were sour and putrid. the food is pre-packaged, so no chef in the back is actually putting your food together. salsa lacked any flavor, chips were from the store, beef enchaladas were bland. The architecture and ambiance was off balance - look closely at the wall ... view more
We took a group here for a business dinner. I honestly had only modest expectations for this place, but it was a smashing success with the group! (phew!)\r
The drinks were great - perfectly stout! The food was amazing - braised ribs, enchiladas, guacamole, etc., etc. In fact, everyone raved so much about their dish, we ended up passing them all around to enjoy!\r
I picked Thursday night so the group cou... view more
I went there for happy hour with my girlfriends after work and we had the best time. The braised short ribs were delicious.
Carlos Santana owns the restaurant so I guess that's why they have such an emphasis on great live music. It really sets the mood and the right atmosphere.
