Restaurant came highly recommended. Seem to have a nice atmosphere however I believe there was about 12 tables. The wait was going to be over an hour so we did not stay. Need to go before the rush hour crowd.

Daily HH from 4-7 includes $1.25 tacos (soft or hard, pinto or ground beef) and $3.50 margaritas. We shared the chips/salsa which was very fresh and tasty. I had 3 tacos and my husband had 4; we were both full when we were done. They were warm, tasty, fresh, and quick which was great!! Everything on the menu sounded great... More

New favorite Mexican restaurant! Fajitas, burritos, enchiladas, all flavorful and beautifully presented. Even the staples like queso, Spanish rice, and refrieds were unexpectedly good. Dinner hours end at 11; we rolled in at 10:45 and got good, attentive, fast service. Be aware that this is a bar, not so much a family restaurant. We will definitely be back!

I have been here several times, locally owned, great staff, drinks, tacos. Get here early for a spot at the bar it fills up quick, a testament to the food and specials.

1st let me say, it's a bar. I've read many reviews where people were upset that it wasn't family friendly. It's a bar. Okay, now that's out of the way. We have been going to Mother's every time we visit OCMD the last couple of years. We don't go for the bar we go for the food. Always good, I... More

Then the service was great, everyone helping each other. The owner came over right away to ask what... More

I have been going to OC for many years, but this was my first time at this restaurant. It is small and calling ahead is recommended. The Pineapple and Ginger infused sangria was fabulous. The portions are HUGE. We totally over-ordered for 2 of us getting an appetizer and 2 meals (both fajita's). We do not have small appetities, so... More

In the mood for great Mexican, visit Mother's Cantina. 4-7 happy hour fish tacos and Margaritas awesome. I actually went twice on my vaca and had the Chorizo and Chicken mix Chimichanga both times. Don't forget to get the Mothers Guacamole, excellent.

The tacos are great at Happy Hour as well as the Margaritas. The HH prices are great and the regular prices for dinner are reasonable for what you get.
