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!

It's pretty good if you like the traditional American-downed Mexican food. The salsa was nothing like real Mexican salsa but the chips were good. The service was super friendly but i probably won't go back. I grew up 7 miles from the border of Mexico in California so when I say it's not legit salsa... It's not.

We'd heard great reviews of Mama Chus and decided to check it out for ourselves. We were not impressed. While the prices are good, you get what you pay for. My 'carne asada' was nothing more than an overcooked piece of steak with some sad shredded lettuce on the side and the rice was just bland, white rice with something... More

My wife and I love to eat out. After seeing all the good reviews this place was getting, we decided to give it a try for dinner one night. The service was slower than I think it should have been given that there were only 2 other tables which had people at the time we were seated. I ordered Enchiladas... More

This is a well-kept secret and we kind of hope it stays that way. We get seated right away, served great hot chips and tasty salsa right away and get our orders taken right away. It's easy to pick Mama Chus when faced with grilled cheese and canned soup for dinner. The menu is varied - nothing out of the... More

I was amazed at how quickly our food came out. The place wasn't bustling so I didn't expect to wait long, but I was still impressed with the speed of service. Our server promised at least one refill of soda when I ordered a Horchata (which was delicious), but she wasn't around to ask me what I'd like after I'd... More

Service is great! Food is great! I mostly get takeout and they are super fast. They even give free chips and salsa with takeout orders. Very reasonable prices as well.

The salsa is my favorite! I could make a meal out of the chips and salsa. They serve the cheesy, saucey, gorpy style here, which I happen to love! Good cheese enchiladas.

Seriously, I have made a saint candle of mama chu and I pray to it every night. Her delectable chile relleno is enough of a miracle to get her canonized.
