Great food and great value

Mamacita's is our go to place for Mexican. The menu and is super and the specials are great for something different but I have a hard time deviating from my favorites. The staff is always nice and the line moves fast.

Go through the line and have the staff pile it on! Tasty! Casual! Mostly students filled the restaurant. Not much room inside for the number of people who wanted to sit.

We ate here recently and had the Baja tacos. Ingredients are very fresh and prices are reasonable. Fixed to order at the counter.

The reviews for Mamacita's were really good. We were meeting another couple for dinner and were sort of stunned. This is NOT a sit down, be waited on, type of restaurant. It's cafeteria style - except you order from a menu. Prices are fairly cheap, and the food was actually pretty good. Be prepared for a crowd and a long... More

Definitely would go back. Wish they still did the $2 tacos the old way where you could get what you wanted. Good selection of bottled beer for a quick-service place.

The freshest ingredients at a restaurant ever. It made this fast food type restaurant into a five star restaurant. The good was so fresh and flavorable. A place to definitely stop by!

After a night of beer drinking, this was a perfect place to end our evening. Set up sort of like Moe's, you order your food and pick what you would like to put on your burrito and they make it in front of you.

I had no idea that downtown Ashville was the place to be on Sunday! Had the Peach Pulled Pork burrito and it was fabulous! Counter staff was great! Definitely recommend!

This place has burrito stuffing options that are fun and tantalizing. The burritos are packed heavy with nicely spiced sweet potato, kale, tofu, and of course a variety of meats. My only criticism is the restaurant was a bit warm given all the fine cooking they were doing. The location in the bustling downtown area makes it a great spot... More
