The menu is simple enough--pick your pleasure of tacos from a fairly creative list. Serving size was good, value is not so bad. Parking was tough during a rush (shopping strip) but worth the hassle.

Ingredients seemed fresh enough but I think the quality was middle of the road. The creativity of taco builds was the selling point.

Before you go, please understand this is not your normal taco place. Taco Bell it isn't. The tacos are different. That said, my family loves this place. It is probably or favorite restaurant right now. Try the Memphis nachos. Outstanding. Be open minded about the rest of it. If you just have to have an authentic mexican taco then there... More

What you would expect if Tennesseans tried to make a Taco place. Weird Taco's at a price to break the bank. I'm not a fan.

Our family really likes this place. Great location, but sometimes parking can be a problem. I've never had a bad meal here and the food is reasonably priced.

My wife and I had lunch there with friends and we had to wait about 20 minutes. My wife had read up and said it had amazing reviews. I thought I would give it a try. We got seated and ordered. The food came quick but was pretty small portions and you have to pay for chips and salsa. The... More

Taco Mamacita has a great selection of tacos. I don't have a favorite taco because I love them all!!! You must try the BLT taco and the shrimp taco. So unique and delicious. The sauces they develop for their tacos are perfect. If you are visiting Chattanooga you need to grab at least a taco with a margarita while you... More

I had the ish tacos and the jerk chiken tacos as well as a local brew. I enjoyed their pico de gallo and their salsas. they are very contemporary and very nice flavors.

My granddaughter was on Winter break...joined her mother & brother. I had not been to this restaurant in some time. Solid menu....many choices...good sides...real Mexican theme. Good for lunch date or with family. I would suggest more light in restaurant...seemed dark.

Why we had never visited Taco Mamacita before yesterday is a mystery to me, but we had not. Since it was near to where we had another engagement, we stopped in for a late afternoon lunch/dinner. What surprise! The informality of the setting belies one of the best meals that we have enjoyed. I am vegan, but my wife is... More
