Great little place to eat. The food is well prepared. You need to tell them if you want it hotter. The drinks were fine. The margarita's could have been a little more authentic. All in all a fine meal for the cost.

We love El Maz. Great atmosphere and good food. We do love how clean the place is and how much martine puts into it. They are very giving to the community which is also amazing and keeps me coming back.

Best Mexican restaurant in Lincoln. Always a positive experience. All time favorite Camarones Jalisco, bacon wrapped shrimp with decadent cheese sauce, onions and peppers . Friendly fast service. Good selection of cerveza’s and margaritas. Nice decor and patio area.

I had dinner here on by myself while traveling on business. It was a weeknight and the place wasn't very busy around 6pm. I was sat and served very quickly, but no one was overly friendly. The food itself was adequate. I ordered a taco...More

Great Mexican restaurant in a small town. I could see a place like this thriving in Chicago. The margaritas and food are reasonable in price and solid in quality. Service was VERY fast. Would recommend and will come again!
