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.

I have to avoid heavily seasoned and spicy foods thanks to IBD. It is difficult to find restaurants where I can eat but that my friends and family can enjoy too. One local restaurant works perfectly for us in this regard. Nacho Mama's offers a plethora of Mexican dishes that range from mild to wild and that will satisfy meat... More

This place has awesome mexian food. I often pass by here on my way to work but my bestie visits here often. She had the Jerk burrito and I had the California burrito with lime shrimp. It was the best I ever tasted. We dined outside on the patio as the night was really nice. Looking for some real mexican... More

I popped into this awesomely named place for a quick a la carte meal and a beer in the early evening only to have a long lost friend show up for some catching up! We ended up visiting & drinking till the establishment was basically ready to mop the floors.. They have great chicken enchiladas, rice and beans... and enough... More

Some coworkers and I visited here one week night for a few drinks after a business dinner at a different restaurant. As we had just eaten, none of us tried the food. However, we did heavily sample the margaritas. They have several different kinds and flavors and we all enjoyed the ones we got. There was a 2-4-1 special so... More

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! They do a random name game everyday and if you have that name on the chalk board you get a free drink. We are still waiting…. Anyway, good stop and... More
