“El Maya has been a go-to restaurant for me. Whenever my wife and I can't decide on a restaurant, we often choose to come here because it's consistently awesome and reasonably priced. You get Downtown Chicago quality food without paying the crazy prices. ”

“Cute little spot with great food. It's BYOB and they will make margaritas for you if you bring your own tequila. I recommend El Maya and will be back for the steak dinner!”
