First review
Villa Maya, which translates into Mayan village in English, is a Mexican restaurant with a single location. It's a few years old and is in a small suburban shopping center. The restaurant offers popular Mexican dishes such as fajitas, enchiladas and burritos. The menu also includes seafood, steak and poultry dishes. A weekend brunch is available on both Saturday and Sunday. Villa Maya has a happy hour Monday through Friday with discounted margaritas and sangria.

The restaurant is partitioned into several rooms which gives it a larger feel. The main dining areas are up front and a bar section in the back. There were no tablecloths but utensils were wrapped in napkins. Villa Maya was half full on a Saturday night around 8:30. Noise from food service and various conversations was louder than the Mexican music in the background.

Service started off pleasantly and was attentive but later the dessert was rushed out which was odd because other diners were still chatting after their meals. As for the food, the sopa de tortilla (vegetables and chicken broth soup) started off the meal on a strong note. It had a hearty, slightly salty taste and was full of delicious carrots and celery. The platanos fritos (fried plantains) ranked below the soup on the taste scale and the sour cream was like a grocery store condiment. The vegetable fajita entrée was smaller than average and included a variety of well cooked vegetables. The guacamole helped out on the taste factor. The dish was filling and moderately appetizing but the rice and beans on the side were bland and unremarkable. Dinner is nothing without some dessert made in house but the flan here failed to wow the taste buds. It worked OK if you like honey, coconut and a smaller portion. Villa Maya did not win any culinary awards for Mexican food on BlitzQuest, but if you are in the area and feel like a taste from south of the border, it can deliver a generally satisfying but not a scintillating experience.
