    Bottomless everything is now 42$ a person but still worth the deal. The food literally didn't stop coming we had to ask them to stop! Amazing service and top notch margaritas, bloody marys and mimosas

    The Maya Margarita is balanced artisanal tequila with tamarind, hint of chili. Fresh ceviche. Came here on the advice of a friend who said it was the best happy hour and bottomless brunch.

    Bottomless brunch - went for a 30th birthday. Very crowded so be sure to book for exact # of guests, three extra ppl showed up and we had no room. French toast was amazing.

    Love their desserts! The banana chocolate tart & the mexican doughnuts will fulfill any sweet tooth cravings. The chocolate abuelita cake is a standout with a unique corn crème anglaise hibiscus sauce

    the default brunch option is an all-you-can-eat, bottomless brunch, which provides you with access to the entire food menu plus eight different cocktails.

    This is hands down the best brunch place ever. Pan Dulce is why I keep going to this place, the corn on the cob is magical, and the drinks are very well made. Margs are bottomless. Challenge accepted

    Pampano’s sister restaurant just up the street on First Avenue, Maya is one of the best modern Mexican restaurants on the East Side. Try any of the ceviches followed by the chili citrus mahi mahi.

    Service is excellent! Food is very tasty and light. A little priced high but love the setting and that the they play Spanish music and servers speak Spanish as well . Great for a date/ drinks

    Excellent happy hour deals. Sangria is very good. You can get 2 appetizer for $6 but they have to be of the same thing. You can always swap with a friend. That's what I did!

    Tampiqueña (Filet mignon, mole cheese enchilada, guacamole, poblano chile potato gratin, cactus salad) is mouthwatering! Great flavors & textures.

    Bottomless brunch is worth it - small dishes for everyone to share, and they are good about refilling. Excellent for a large group.

    The drink menu beats the food options here, with the standout being sotol (distilled spirit made like mezcal and tequila, but from a different plant).

    Guac and Margaritas. A combo that will go down in history. Fantastic date night spot, happy hour spot, it's-rainin-outside spot.
