This was our last meal in SoCal, and it did not disappoint. The food and service were both very good. Margaritas were generous.

Stopped in for lunch and had a great meal. If you like guacamole dip then you'll love theirs, it's great. Had the Enchilada and Tamale dinner and my wife had the Sopes dinner. Add a couple of Margaritas to the mix and needless to say we walked out of their stuffed. It was a bit chilly when we were there... More

We dined outside in the patio with the outdoor heaters going. We were comfortable. The queso with chorrizo was a good appetizer. My husband said the chili relleno was one of the best he has ever eaten. The kids loved the quesadilla and bean burrito. I had chicken fajitas which was a plentiful serving but was a little bland to... More

After a hike on New Year's Eve we had a hankering for tacos and Maracas was just the ticket. Plenty of chips, great salsa, guac, giant margaritas AND great tacos. The chicken tortilla soup was also wonderful. The only downside was a slight bathroom smelling inside - sit on the patio it has a great view for people watching.

It was our last day and raining, so we stop in this restaurant. The fresh, home cooked food was so good. Nachos and salsa to start and the fish tacos were amazing!

We come to Palm Springs every year and always end up at Maracas. It never disappoints. It was two years since our last visit and we had the same waiter. Heat lamps on the patio make outdoor dining a breeze. The menu is fantastic! The margaritas are delicious! Can't wait to return.

Great position with terrace for watching the world go by. Extensive menu with many Mexican classics and more. We started with tortillas and home made salsa that was spicy and tasty ( but not too spicy) We then all had salads that were extremely good. Extensive wine and beer list.

We stopped here for a light meal and some drinks. The margaritas were excellent!!! We ordered street tacos and quesadillas off the appetizer menu. Both were tasty and just right for a light snack. Definitely would return!

This restaurant not only has great drinks and one of the best menus in Palm Springs, it's a great place to relax and people watch due to the ample amount of outdoor seating
