Ummm Ummm Ummm Good, No....AWESOME!!!

And I thought I found the best Mexican food in a little place in Kissimmee, FL at the El Tenampa. I was wrong This is now THE BEST Mexican food I have ever had, my wife thinks so too. I HIGHLY recommend the Chorizo Burrito, but be warned, it has some spice to it. But it was absolutely delicious... read more

I've been coming to OCMD since I was fetus (literally, no joke). Mother's has been, and always will be, a must and my favorite place to go when I'm down there. Food is always amazing and happy hour is a great deal. I dream about their guacamole. The only bad thing is sometimes it can be a bit packed with... More

My husband found this restaurant on a Google search and I thought the TA reviews looked good. So glad we had dinner here! We arrived during Happy Hour (4-7pm) on a Monday evening. We are a family of four (kids ages 5 and 1) and were able to enjoy Happy Hour prices at the table. I had the house margarita... More

Mothers's Cantina is a small restaurant/bar located in a strip mall on Coastal Highway. The food was absolutely delicious! I had a taco salad and my husband had the chicken fajita. Both of which we would recommend. My daughter had a vegetarian burrito and she enjoyed it as well. They give you nice-sized portions and the pricing is reasonable. The... More

So I went to OC this past weekend and was eager to find a place that was going to show the UFC fight, Mcgregor Vs Mendez. So I called Mothers Cantina because it was recommended to me, anyway, on their voice automated machine they said that they were going to show the fight but when I called to verify someone... More

Maybe I did not do my research, but this is really not overly family oriented. It is mostly a bar where a lot of people hang out. That being said, the food was AWESOME! We brought our 4 year old, and they are very accommodating with children. We sat in the bar area, which was dark, but the food was... More

Although this place is small it makes up for it with large portions. I ordered nachos as an appetizer and was blown away at the size of the plate. Also ordered Mothers burrito for my main dish. I wasn't able to completely finish either. Along with my order, my wife had fish tacos and my son had chicken tenders and... More

Mother's is located in a strip mall opposite the Jolly Roger amusement complex and next to a Fractured Prune doughnut shop. The restaurant has a medium sized bar area and a small dining room. The whole place is decorated in dingy beach vibe decor that has clearly seen better days. The staff was very nice, and food was all good... More
