I hadn't been to Mama Roomba's in a year or so because it was too far from where I worked downtown. When I switched job locations, I found myself going for lunch and I must say it was just a good as I remembered it! I love the Cuban pork sandwiches and the fish and shrimp dishes. The servers are...

the Cuban Sandwich was very good, the accompanying potatoes a poor excuse for potatoes. If you like garlic and an abundance of it, this is the place for you. My friend had an appetizer and it was adequate for an appetizer, I could smell garlic from across the table! (I am not a garlic fan in my old age.) The... More

Went with friends on Friday night. First time there. We shared six different appetizers ~ all were magnificent. Can't say enough about this wonderful "new" discovery!

I usually visit for dinner, so it was a nice change to stop in for lunch at one of my local favorites, but I won't fib, I was a tad disappointed. Came on a Monday and Ice Tea tasted like leftover from weekend, cook was having soup in dining room while listening to music on her phone, and tables weren't... More

My grandmother and I went to have lunch together. It's was a quaint little spot with very minimal seating room. There wasn't much of a selection. The only reason why we stayed was to try it, because you never if you like it if you don't try it. No, my grandmother and I will not return

Every year we attend a Convention in Bakersfield and visit Mama Roombas. Delicious food and a great staff. Clean and well decorated hole in the wall. Highly recommended!

A local favourite featuring an eclectic menu with a simple decor. I enjoyed the meal though the hostess appeared bothered by my meal request. Attention to ambience and friendly staff will make Mama Roomba an exciting dining experience.
