Fantastic value for a quick lunch or a great dinner idea. Want to have a real Mexican dinner at home, call ahead handpick up a feast to bring home for the whole family to enjoy.

This is a self service (get your food on the line and then grab a seat) restaurant. I have eaten there twice a month for years. Their ingredients are fresh fresh fresh and consistently great. I find it difficult to go and not get something with the Citrus chicken. This restaurant is great to grab a bite with a friend.... More

Mamacita's is a must go place when you are hungry and ready to chow down on creative california mexican cuisine. Choose your own ingredients to make the most awesome burrito ever! And it is huge. If you are not that hungry, no worries, split one with your friend or take half home for tomorrow. Fresh ingredients, delicious, good selection of... More

An old standby but for some reason tonight they were just off. Still good food just really bad service. As if they were ready to go home and didn't care. 3 star tonight.

So you're rolling around downtown and you're really hungry. Sure you have plenty of places to eat, but you don't want to wait too long or spend a ton of money. Luckily, there's Mamacita's. They're fast, it's tasty, and very affordable. It's in the style of "assembly-line" burrito places like Moe's, Neo-Burrito, Urban Burrito, etc., however, this place blows all... More

It's exactly like Moe's Southwest Grill. That's not to say it's bad, but since you choose your own ingredients for them to make burritos and such in front of you, it really depends on your tastes. You can make them as hot or mild as you like, but in the end... they aren't very exciting!

If you like "the ultimate tacos" this is the place to go. Quick, easy, and very clean. Felt kind of like "The Subway" but was for tacos and great mexican food. Sauces, quacamole...all sublime! Spicy chicken tacos the best!

The Veggie-Mama is, in my opinion, the best food for your money in Asheville. It's delicious, loaded with super foods like kale, black beans, quinoa, and sweet potato, made right in from of you, and won't kill your wallet.

This place was recommended because it was near the hotel and had cheap Tacos on Tuesdays. The line was long and you had to be prepared to order fast, which we weren't. Not many great options for kids. Food was decent but nothing great.

I moved to Asheville late last year and didn't discover Mama's until a front page article about fire truck's lined up in the street and quote's from the firefighters about how good and how cheap the food was. I have to go downtown 2 or 3 times a week and I decided to try them. I was hooked. At the... More
