Taco Maria is hands down the best Chicano restaurant ever. This is a must eat place for all foodies!
The restaurant is located in the hip OC Mix. You must make reservation since the place is small and gets filled up quickly. The counter seats are the best because you get to watch the “cooking show” and see the chefs in action putting your food together.
For dinner service, they only offer 4 courses prix fixe menu ($49) with optional wine parings ($26). The menu changes frequently. There are two entree choices for each course. The best way to dine is to order every dishes with your dining companions and share everything, so you can all experience how amazing the food is at Taco Maria. I would highly suggest to opt in for the wine pairings as well. All the wine we tasted were excellent and perfect with the dishes.
