Fajitas Please the Palate

Fortunate for us, Mama Juanita's is close to our home. We recently ate here and like always, the food was good. I enjoy the chips, the sauce, and the fajitas. My daughter ordered a fajita quesadilla that she liked and my sons ordered beef nachos. The restaurant makes good rice and beans as well... read more

My family eats there once a week. Typical Mexican food. Family atmosphere. Wait staff tries to remember your order from week to week. Feels like eating at home.

Stopped in for lunch the other day & found a 3/4 full building that filled up before we finished. Considering how competitive the parking lot is , that is an accomplishment! The food was served fast & it was very filling, but nothing more than basic Tex-Mex. Decent chips & both red & green salsa to start . Tea was... More

We started going here when the wait times at Chuey's kept growing. Now we split our Tex Mex budget between the two because we like both and they are different. Mama J's is pretty basic, dependable and reasonable. So far we have never had to wait and the service has always been quite good, but parking can be a little... More

We keep coming back! We have never had a bad experience. Great for large groups too!! Service is always top notch, and the staff seems to enjoy their jobs. The food is excellent and coupons can be found on their website. We love that kids eat free on Sunday! They don't mind substituting different sauces for toppings either. Best mexican... More

This place tastes a bit too much like Ricos for my taste. Unlike Ricos, it is clean. There are much better places in the same area. I would recommend taking a pass.

Stopped in on the way to a soccer game. I have been to other locations and this is my favorite by far. The chips and 2 types of salsa was outstanding. The fajitas were well prepared with delicious fresh made tortillas. The quacamole was well prepared and fresh. Everyone at the table enjoyed their selection. Big enough portions to feed... More

I was surprised how much food we received when we ordered our meals. I am not a take it home kinda guy but, there was no way I could eat all we had delivered to my table. I wound up bringing home some fabulous Guacamole and half of my Fajita meal. There was also Tortilla soup that was very taste.... More

I grew up in Texas and moved away 15 years ago. I always want Tex Mex comfort food whenever I visit Texas. Mama Juanita's filled the Tex Mex void. It was good and I'd return, but it wasn't the best I've ever had. It was family friendly, fresh, and had a lively and slightly noisy atmosphere. Service was friendly and... More

We have been to this restaurant several times since moving to this area. The food is average, but is a short drive from our home. Usually there is a nice crowd of people from the businesses for lunch. We decided to go later today. We arrived a bit before 4pm. We asked to be seated away from the door. The... More
