I have hosted birthdays, groups and just gone on dates at El Maya and never had a bad time. Their service is always fantastic, creating a warm and welcoming environment with their genuine care for service and food. As a super fan of Mexican cuisine, I can vouch that El Maya delivers some quality dishes using quality ingredients. As a self-proclaimed connoisseur of Mexican food on Chicago’s north side, I have tried many of their dishes. They have several great options like the decadent piramide which is like Mexican lasagna. Or, I love to share the Molcajete with your choice of shrimp, chicken, skirt steak or a mix of proteins. No matter what you add it comes out still sizzling and hot!
After all of the amazing flavors and goodness ensues during a meal here, oftentimes it’s hard to make room for dessert, but my eyes are always bigger than my stomach and I go for the chocolate tamale or flan! And, ummm you should definitely save room for it, too!
Be sure to tell Jimmy I sent you and he’ll treat you right :).
