We stood at the entry and waited about 10 minutes to be seated. No less than 8 employees and 1 manager walked past us without even acknowledging us. They did not look crowded and there were plenty of open tables within sight...just no host/hostess. The nearby cashier didn't say anything to us until we were leaving. Too little too late.

There is a lot of "Cornfusion" here, as Mamarita's - on Spencer Highway, near Red Bluff used to be called Mamacita's! The original Mamacita's is located on NASA 1, they are no longer associated, thus the name change. Mamarita's on Spencer, MamaCita's on NASA !... The are both Mexican but very different... We prefer Mamarita's.... It is a trip to... More

This is a favorite stop on the way back from The Bay on Sundays. Just like a quick trip to Cozumel! Lots of tables, really quick service. Oscar, the bartender, whips up a mean frozen top-shelf Margarita, the Mamarita! They serve until 10pm, which is nice, and all the food is really tasty. It is also reasonable, and you can... More

Sad they don't sell macaroni pockets anymore but the food was hot and delicious. Plus can't pass free nacho appetizers. Love how they have live music, it feels like I'm in the heart of Mexico. Def coming back next month.

It used to be fantastic when it was just a little joint on Egret Bay. Then, it became good when it moved to Nasa Rd. 1. The last two times we were there, we were disappointed. The food was just OK.

My husband and I have eaten at Mamacita's many times but last week will be the last time. My husband forgot to order onions on his enchiladas and when they came he noticed his mistake and asked for some chopped onions. Well, they charged up 50 cents like it was a side order. That is so wrong. When we brought... More

A trip to Cozumel... off the usual path and worth the drive. We stop by after a day on the Bay as we head home... Great Marguerita's.... Mamarita's are their "Top Shelf" version and the frozen has one inch or tequila on the bottom of the mug! Yum! I enjoy the six grilled jumbo shrimp, service is quick and good,... More

We used to be regulars at Mamacita's but things have changed. The service seems be getting worse every time we come here. Used to be really good and I love the margaritas here. Last time we came here was the last time we ever go here. The chicken enchilladas my girlfriend ordered had tons of tiny bones in them about... More
