Best Neighborhood Mexican Restaurant, Southeast Valley (2011)

Maria's Mexican Food

Once you hit the suburbs, it's easy to be overwhelmed by chain restaurants, so we like to support our independents out there even more. But with a place like Maria's Mexican Food, it's not principle alone that keeps us coming back for more. It's the amazing California burrito that has us hooked: steak and potatoes, Mexican-style, wrapped up with seriously mouthwatering pico de gallo and cheese. Maria is always on hand to offer a helpful suggestion. And what the restaurant lacks in atmosphere — it's a serious hole in the wall — it makes up for in flavor with caldo de res, sopes, and jamaica that would make an abuelita proud. Muy auténtico, Maria.
