Maria’s has been serving fresh Mexican food to loyal locals and visitors alike in Downtown Grass Valley since 1992. We pride ourselves on offering you a comfortable setting where you will enjoy our authentic Mexican cuisine. Our dishes are prepared fresh daily using family recipes created in Mexico and handed down through the generations. We feature daily specials (ask when you visit!) and host many fun and interesting events such as our Tequila Tasting Dinners where you can taste and learn about different tequilas while dining on a 6 course meal.
Owner Maria Ramos learned to cook from her Mexican born mother and grandmother and has brought all of the authenticity and passion to Maria’s Mexican Restaurant. While the regular menu is full of every Mexican favorite you can imagine, she is constantly trying new, fresh ideas. There is ALWAYS something new to try each time you visit.
“Eating in Maria’s patio is as close to Mexico as you can get without a passport!”
The original building housed a burger place before Maria took it over in 1992. The adjacent land went up for sale in 2005, so Maria decided to expand, completing the expansion and renovation in 2010. The new Maria’s added an outdoor patio, patio bar and a new round indoor bar.
