Pollos Maria is authentic, home-cooked family-style Mexican food. Much of the produce used is locally sourced, recipes are generations old including the enchilada sauce, tamales (available November and December), rice and beans (cooked without lard). All of the delicious dishes are prepared today as they were back in 1985.
The chickens are prepared in a citrus-based marinade, then flattened so they cook evenly and quickly over the grill. Devoted customers love the chicken (menu item #6) the Family Meal. This feast includes plenty of broiled chicken, mounds of rice, beans and a stack of tortillas with freshly prepared condiments and salsas to accompany your meal. The taste is consistently tender, juicy, and flavorful.
Aside from their house specialty, Marie and Carmen also added a full range of Mexican favorites to the menu, from fish and shrimp tacos to carne asada, chicken soup and Menudo on weekends. Beer, wine, Jarritos sodas and desserts like flan, chocolate cake, and N.Y. cheesecake round out their extensive menu.
