Authentic Mexican food

We went to Mama Chus last night. It is the best food for the best price. The service is great!! They are fast and very friendly. The four of us ate dinner for around 35.00. This is our family's favorite mexican restaurant.

There are some great dishes and the heat is better than average. I like to explore the menu and really like a variety of the choices.

And that is saying alot since mexican joints are a dime a dozen around here. Their rice is the best I've ever had in a mexican restaurant anywhere. Their refried beans are homemade. Their chips are hot and homemade. We love this place.

My wife & I love this place. The food is good, free chips & salsa, and the service is really quick - but it doesn't taste like fast food.

The food here is truly good Mexican, pretty authentic with ample servings. The chips and salsa are marvelous. The variety of sodas is quite broad, with Mexican bottled imports added to the mix.

Mamy Chus is a friendly restaurant with great food. My wife and I went here with some friends recently and had a great time. Their chips and salsa are great and I really like their enchiladas. Mama Chus has daily specials at discounted prices which is amazing since their prices are already pretty low for what you get.

We are lucky to live just a few minutes from Mama Chus. It's good enough to entice us there often. The chips come to you warm and crisp. The salsa has changed - it is now chunkier and spicier - really nice on the warm chips. The menu is extensive and my husband and I always think we are going... More

We have been to Mama Chus 3 or 4 times now & we have been satisfied each time. We enjoy coming here with family because of the atmosphere & affordable prices. My favorite is the carne asada burrito. We love their chips & salsa too!
