The food tasted nice and fresh and the beef enchilada was a very bold blend of spice that I enjoyed. I find a lot of places in the state that call food spicy and it's anything but. This was solid, though. The chicken enchilada was also tasty with a nice, creamy texture. I really enjoyed the homemade guac and the... More

My boyfriend and I went to Mama's Ladas tonight because we read the good reviews. We, however, were surprised at the small portions. "Half an enchilada" was $6. We ordered a "full enchilada" and it was $12. All we got were two smaller enchiladas and a few chips. I know it is downtown so it was going to be a... More

I love Mama Lada's enchiladas. Get there early because they do run out of things. There is a very limited menu but the enchiladas taste homemade and delicious. It is a very small place and don't blink or you will miss it.

Awesome food. I'd recommend the beef if you can handle a little heat. Place is very small. The atmosphere is unique and amazing. The waitress is really nice but she used to sit at the end of the restaurant and smoke when she wasn't busy. We have the smoking ban now, though so that isn't a problem anymore. Also she... More

The salsa here is truly unique and delicious! The place is cozy and decorated with lots of interesting trinkets. We had the chips and salsa and the enchiladas. If we lived here, we would come here at least once a month. The service could not have been better. A true gem in Sioux Falls.

Mamaladas has the most limited menu I've ever seen, but that's one of it's charms (and the key to its success). They serve two kinds of enchiladas on the weekdays and four on the weekends (all models are fantastic). Chips are the only side offered. But you can and SHOULD order the salsa, which is the best I've ever had.... More

What a perfect little hole in the wall. This place was simple, fast, and wonderful. Best salsa I've ever had. The Sangria was to die for.

This a great little restaurant! Very unique setting in a tiny building in downtown Sioux Falls. There is not much for indoor seating, so occasionally there is a little wait for a table. Be sure to arrive early for lunch, as the restaurant gets busy quickly over noon. The service is super fast and friendly. The menu consists of enchiladas... More
