45x45-SunFlowerThe Doña Maria’s Taqueria experience can be summed up in three words: Fresh, Fast, and Friendly. We cook all of our food from scratch throughout the day. Everything we make – from our hand-squeezed key lime on our ceviche to our traditional homemade guacamole, to our unique selection of complimentary salsas – and our mother’s famous flour tortillas, is prepared in small batches, guaranteeing that it is served at the peak of freshness.

Our menu centers around a variety of Guisados or Mexican braises incorporating our perfectly seasoned chicken, al pastor (marinated pork), tender pork/carnitas, sizzling grilled steak and  fresh fish & shrimp.  Don’t leave without trying our signature Pozole, Chilles Rellenos, Machaca and our famous fish and crispy tacos!  All unique recipes from Doña Maria.


We prepare your food when you order it, right in front of you at our walk up show kitchen. You choose your tortilla type (corn or flour) freshly made before your eyes and a protein that is braised, grilled, or fried to order.  There’s something for everyone at Doña Maria’s. You won’t find better Mexican Taqueria Restaurant “street food”  anywhere in the Tampa Bay area, our goal is to satisfy your taste for authentic Mexican flavors and in some cases introduce what real Mexican food is.

Our tortillas and house made signature salsas and sauces are made daily to complement the food we serve.  At Doña Maria’s it’s not just about food, it’s about the entire experience.  From the moment you walk through the door, we want to give you a sense of what our tradition of Baja California Style is all about, we invite you to relax in our modernly rustic but casual atmosphere, have fun piecing together your perfect meal and getting to know our family heritage and matriarch “Doña Maria”.



The atmosphere at Doña Maria’s is warm, welcoming, and clean…  always with a friendly smile to greet you! We’re a tight knit family and we consider every customer a member of our family too. We love getting to know you, our customers, and hearing your feedback about any part of your Doña Maria’s experience.
