Good without the wait

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... read 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

Good Mexican food at this location as well as the others in Conroe and now the new location in Montgomery. The Woodlands location is somewhat of a challenge to get to with all the I-45 construction but very doable. Chips and salsa fresh and very good cheese enchiladas. The chicken Diablo is always on mark. Very good service at this... More

we ate here at my cousin's suggestion. When we pulled in, I was leery because of its size/location. However, everything was fresh and delicious. Our waiter was also very good! I would definitely go back!

This is my sister-n-law's favorite Mexican place. I'm not sure why, but it's OK. The food is good, the chips are the best thing I had. Service was very friendly and the beer was cold.
