Located in an upscale shopping center in Inglewood, Maria’s is a tiny restaurant that has generally excellent Mexican food. But you really need to come here for the breakfast burrito and the gigantic carne asada fries. Maria’s is also right off the 405 Freeway, making it a great post-flight option after landing at LAX.
