We have eaten here several times and it is always very good. Servings are generous, f food is wonderful and service is excellent. Do not be scared by the numerous cars in the parking lot. Just fine a place to squeeze into it is worth any wait. They will get you in ASAP. It is hard to recommend any one... More

We have been eating at Mamacita's since its opening. The atmosphere is pleasant, excellent service, and good food. Something for everyone: hamburgers, Chicken Fried Steak for non-Mexican fooders. Good salads, too. The chicken salad is tasty. they are very accommodating to those who would like a substitution, such as my son likes double rice, no beans on his plate. I'd... More

We love this restaurant. Their chips and salsa are great and the guacamole cream dip is the best we've had. I always order the chicken mole enchiladas. The portions are generous and the kids menu has all of the basics: grilled cheese, cheese quesadilla, cheese enchilada, pizza. The pizza is a real trip saver if your child does not have... More

Fajitas are really good. They make their own tortillas and they are real good. Your drink never gets empty someone always trying to fill it. The staff is friendly.

After a 30 minute or so wait (we were a group of 10) we were shown to out table and given chips and salsa. The guacamole dip with the chips is fab but the red salsa was a bit spicy for me. Drinks came quickly and our orders began arriving promptly. Everything was delicious and portions are huge. near everyone... More

We visit Fredericksburg almost yearly and while many may chose the German cuisine we chose Mamacita's every visit. The "green salsa" is unique and exceptional as are all the appetizers and main courses. Our favorites are the chicken enchiladas with green sauce, chimichanga, tacos, and those awesome tortillas. The staff are courteous and well trained and the food is always... More

Greeted fast, immediate salsa: Red fresh tomatoey with cilantro slightly sweet and chunky green could stand in for quacamole. Beware the one they say is very hot, called something like mamas breath from the pits of hell etc.… It's main danger is not that it is hot, but that it is hot and delicious. You will eat much more of... More

An institution and a family tradition in the heart of Kerrville. The new building has the adobe southwest mission look and feel from the outside, but the most impressive part is inside where you step into a village and can see the stars and the moon. Solid TexMex. Traditional dishes and combinations. Fresh ingredients. Good sauces. Good Margaritas (the mix... More

We hadn't been here in years and was in mood for great Mexican food-- we absolutely went to the right place! They were making their own tortillas, serving them warm. We ordered fajitas for 2, beef, chicken and jumbo shrimp...arrived with ALL the trimmings! The service was fantastic-- friendly and was refilling everything before asked. I only regret we ate...
