Our experience at Casa Maria was a mixture of handmade deliciousness and utter disappointment.The good: We we served fresh pressed tortillas, 6 flavors of taco fillings (beef, pork, shrimp and chicken), the rice & beans were standard, a chile relleno in a red chile sauce with very little of the fluffy coating we all have come to expect of them. The chips were fresh, but lacked salt, the salsa was a watered down chile sauce and not the typical vegetable salsa we are used to, but it was flavorful. The Mexican sodas were served with a nice frosty mug and the service was attentive.The bad: I purchased Local Flavor certificate back in 2019 that was hood for $30 in food, the certificate didn't expire until December of 2020. When I went to use the certificate I was told that they no longer accept them. This was a shock to us, as we have attempted at least three times prior to come to the restaurant, but they were always closed. With covid their hours were even more restricted. The waitress said that the owner and Local Flavor had a falling out and she'd get in trouble for accepting the certificate for our meal. I didn't want to get her in trouble and as my wife and I were the only customers this was a very awkward interaction. I paid the full bill and a 20% tip, and we left. I followed up with Local Flavor and they apologized for the inconvenience with a refund of my certificate.
