Maya is a go-to spot for no-frills Tex-Mex classics — sizzling fajitas, quesadillas, chimichangas and other beloved staples made from scratch and served with rice and lard-free refried beans. Formerly known as Tex-Mex Grill and Cafe, the unassuming restaurant — sandwiched between AutoZone and Family Dollar — has been open a little more than five years. Owner Luis Galván took over a few months ago and, along with changing the name, added a few menu items that are far more Tex than Mex, such as the ciabatta-bun burger. “We wanted to add more choices for the regulars looking for a change, but we aren’t taking anything away,” Galván says. Guests still can find Tex-Mex favorites such as the cinco amigos platter, which includes a chicken enchilada, two beef and one cheese enchilada and a cheese taco.
