But if there's ANY issue. Prepare for THE worst customer service you will ever have. They legitimately do not care about their customers. I've waited over two hours on more than one occasion, with them picking up the phone and hanging up deliberately, rather than deal with their customers. I highly recommend using any of the other similar restaurants in... More

Food was amazing! Lots of options to choose from. Had the cheese steak and it gave me so much life! The homemade strawberry cake and confetti cake were also to die for! Will definitely be eating here next time I'm in Baltimore!

Stopped here just trying to pick a place walking down Light Street. We were pleasantly surprised by the nice service and good food. This ain't a Subway. They have a ton of choices including some vegetarian options. Fish sub, pizza, fries, burger, meatball sub and tuna salad sub were all good.

I just stumbled upon Maria D's in Federal Hill. The cheesesteak sub was excellent! The service was also excellent! The atmosphere is ok, but nothing to write home about!

As someone who loves cheese steak subs, in my opinion Maria D's in Federal Hill has the best cheese steak in town. From the plentiful steak and extras to the freshly toasted roll it cannot be beat! Their other subs and salads are also above average for a sub shop and their pizza is also very good. Don't be fooled... More

If it's past 2 and the bars are closed and you're looking for a bite to eat, Maria D's is the place to go. If it is any other time then skip it. The fries are okay, the pizza is okay, it's nothing special. But when you're drunk, this place is awesome and gets a rowdy crowd.

We found this place during our drive home from Florida ...it was late afternoon and we decided to stop & rest, and we needed a nice meal. Service was relaxed but that was fine with us since we were taking a break. We stayed for about an hour in the comfy booth and the food was delicious! Homemade soups, excellent... More

...about this place. I'll try, but it's not going to be pretty. OK, it's a standard pizza place. Don't look for atmosphere. It ain't here. Next, don't look for polite staff. It ain't here. The woman behind the counter (Maria D. believe it or not) is quite obnoxious and, in a heavy Greek accent, touts her food as the best... More

This is where you go at midnight (or 2am) when you need a good cheese steak or a slice of pizza. Don't get suckered into Domino's! Maria D's is way better!
