Oak Park, IL – April 9th, 2014 – Maya Del Sol is once again offering customers a chance to 'Pay What Is Fair' for dinner on tax filing day for the 6th year in a row. From 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 15th, customers at the popular Latin Fusion restaurant will have the opportunity to decide what to pay for their meal. 

'Pay What Is Fair' has become an annual tradition at the Oak Park restaurant. When seated for dinner, customers are given a menu without any prices. Once their meal is complete, guests write in the price they think is fair for their meal, which is what they will be charged. The 'Pay What Is Fair' offer will apply to the food menu only; beverages, tax and gratuity will be excluded. 

"Paying taxes is often stressful for a lot of people. With that in mind, we like to turn things around and give our customers a chance to feel like they are in control and also have some fun by setting their own price for their meal," comments Paul Abu-Taleb, General Manager of Maya Del Sol.

The 'Pay What Is Fair' promotion is available only on Tuesday, April 15th, 2014. Reservations are strongly recommended and should be made by calling 708.358.9800. For more details about the promotion, call Paul Abu-Talebat 708-228-2657 (cell) or 708-358-9800 (restaurant). 

Maya Del Sol is open every day for Dinner at 4pm and on Sundays from 9am-2pm for Sunday Brunch. Please visit for more information about the restaurant.

I would pay less if I knew a bum tried to touch my food before it was served to me

This is a very kind gesture by the restaurant. I'd really like to know whether the prices that customers voluntarily pay turns out to be more or less than actual menu prices. I'm guessing they voluntarily pay perhaps a little more than regular prices, but even if they pay less, it's a very smart public relations move by the restaurant...and a nice way to alleviate the pain of April 15th.
