A-MAIZ-ing

A-MAIZ-ing

I’m here today simply to reiterate my love of MAIZ Mexican Cantina, located in Ypsi’s Depot Town. Our most recent visit cemented our love for MAIZ’s a-MAIZ-ing food. Definitely my favorite Mexican food in the area. I had a hand-shaken strawberry lemonade and shared order of Queso Fundido (half-off during happy hour!) to start, featuring … Continue reading
