The Low Down


The Extras: Maya can host up to 40 guests and create a custom menu.

Save Money: Daily Happy Hour at the bar serves $6 Margaritas, $4-6 cocktails, wine, and beer and $5-$6 bar snacks.

What to Drink: Maya boasts more than 100 tequilas and a selection of excellent margaritas. Steer clear of the sangria, though; the mix is too heavy on wine.
