drinks are good, and food is better! Always get the guacamole, regular or spicy, and save somme to go with your entree. Luna Maya salads are great, as are the quesadillas

Cool place nice bar didn't eat but had a few drinks. God price on drinks and they taste great. Beers are fairly priced while the mix drinks where a little on the high side but still not to bad.

Luna Maya's is consistently excellent! Service begins an incredible experience. Mango mojitos and caprenahs are our beverages of choice. A must is the salsa and guac. We also order the house made queso. The queso is spicy and creamy unlike the typical North American version. We order beef brisket tacos that are seasoned with amazing South American spices. Stuffed pablano... More

This restaurant is the loudest I have ever been to. But if you can deal with that, you will be treated to some of the most delicious food. Amazing salsa and guacamole. The tamales Luna Maya are sensational. Their sangria is a delicious classic. The reason it's so loud and crowded is that the food is so good. This is... More

Great food. Dark inside. Prices range from $11-16. Good date night location. Full bar. All the food is delicious, but the fish tacos and tamales are the best. Very high quality. Local favorite

The best marguirita! the food is uniquely South American with multiple choices. also a great bar scene for the after work crowd. The restaurant is loud (on purpose) to create that atmosphere.

I found this restaurant online while looking for a place to eat dinner after visiting the zoo. Our family loved it - delicious food, cool atmosphere, and great service. We came early, and it was really starting to fill up by the time we left. We had fish tacos and tamales that were amazing!

Guacamole appetizer also comes with salsa. The guacamole was great. I had brisket burrito. That was delicious. The portions are large. I would definitely go back.
