Wonderful chile verde and freshly made menudo. These 2 staples are what I measure Mexican restaurants with and Maya passed with flying colors. Both dishes (I had my wife) were outstanding, good portions, and priced reasonable. Come hungry, as the chips and salsa are also very good!

Maya Restaurant was next door to our hotel during a recent trip to California. We decided to give it a try and we're glad we did. The food was excellent with many choices of food and drink and the prices were very reasonable.

Menudo was delicious. Salsa with the chips was also good. Would like to go back and try other menu items.

I ate there with my children this evening. We were all so full we could hardly walk. The waitress was wonderful. It's a great mom n pop with 30 years of serving the community of Morro Bay. Excellent and easy parking for oversized rigs

Something is missing here. The restaurant is clean and appealing. Service was great. Prices and selection good. Taco Tuesday offers $2 tacos. What could go wrong? I found the tacos pretty bland - not bad, but very little taste. I am not expecting spicy or hot but it just lacked something. Even when I make tacos at home my McCormick... More

If you go here, you will need a lot of salsa, just to add some flavor to whatever you order. Its like eating at a rest home, where the don't season anything. Not what you normally get from a Mexican food place. Its not bad once you season it, and load it up with the salsa, which is pretty good.

Ordered enchilada with beans and rice. Everything on my plate tasted the same and was covered in gooey cheese and an unidentifieable brown mess. Hot sauce and guac was good though and the staff was friendly.

Morro Bay Burrito is my fave! I ask for their Verde sauce instead of their red sauce. Nothing distasteful, but my personal prefrances. They don't have a spirits so their margaritas are wine margi's and pretty tasty. It's never really jammed, so service is quick. Great place for friends and family! Completely reasonably priced, bonus!
