Mexican Food Disappointment City

This place was very disappointing. Got good service but the food was no competition for the big guns like Casa Garcia and Don Jose's. Food not impressive and I wonder how they are still here for so long.

Food was cold and just plain disgusting. Not good at all. The worst Mexican food I have ever eaten. Food is over priced. I would choose Taco Bell over Nacho Mammas any day!

Upon arrival we were greeted and told that there would be a 20-25 minute wait for a table. At first we did not want to stay but I had my heart set on Mexican cuisine so we went back and placed are name on the wait list. While we waited we decided to go to the bar, the bar was... More

We decided to give this restaurant a second chance as we previously has a horrible experience a few years ago. This visit turned out to be just about the same. The food was mediocre at best with the server mixing up our order. She seemed to be bothered that we mentioned it so we decided to keep the food as... More

My wife and I eat here a lot and today stopped by with out of town family. Food is always good and according to my wife the margaritas are fantastic!

Nacho Mama's is a bit overpriced. The food isn't authentic, but some of it is tasty. I wouldn't come here frequently, as it certainly isn't anything to rave about. Being as the Caretta's just opened in Harahan, they will likely be hit even harder.

The food here is good and tasty. Fajitas come out sizzling hot on an iron skillet. Like one reviewer mentioned "Not exactly authentic Mexican food, but filling". I wanted to give a higher rating, but this place is really just average.
