We enjoyed four different entrees during our visits to the restaurant. The salsa was pretty good, not my favorite but others in the group enjoyed it. The Atchafalya enchilada was unique and according to my husband very good. We also had a good burrito. The standout here are the huge portions, you could easily share an entree! It's conveniently located... More

We went to a concert downtown and decided to have dinner at Maria Mia on the Riverwalk. The food and service were excellent! We started our meal with margaritas and chips/hot sauce followed by beef fajita tacos that included rice and beans. We ended our meal with homemade melt-in-mouth sopapillas with honey. We will definitely go back !

Food was okay, had to leave due to the pigeon invasion. Had to hunt down waitress to pay and waited forever for her to find change for a $20. I would not eat here again.

We enjoyed happy hour margaritas and chips with warm salsa almost daily on our trip. The salsa is better than pricier restaurants, and service is quick an friendly.

My girlfriend had her 40th high school reunion, "Meet and Greet" in the bar area. The staff was well trained and the adult beverages were good. We had appetizers served and the food was fresh, very well prepared and it all tasted great.

Recently stopped in for lunch while out exploring the river walk. There is plenty of seating available both inside and out, my wife and I enjoyed the cool A/C inside. The food was very good, I had the mango salad. I recommend stopping by if you are looking for a good food stop along the river walk.

This restaurant was close to the convention center, which was handy. A decent lunch quickly. I had a convention name tag, so there was free chips and queso. We ate inside, and it was comfortable and quiet. Our server was very friendly and attentive.

Just went with small group. Our waiter, when we saw him, was rude. When we asked for separate tickets, the disgust was evident.

We were thrilled to not only find this place right outside our hotel but to score a table on the edge of the river without waiting. Our server was fabulous. The chips and salsa were very good - salsa was definitely on the fiery side. We shared the Rio Verde Enchiladas with shredded beef. Fabulous! Great flavor, temperature was perfect,... More

We enjoyed the views of the Riverwalk while enjoying some drinks. The outdoor patio is as close can be without getting your feet wet. We had great weather which helps.
