We were pleasantly surprised by the food. The tamales were delicious. We actually returned a second time so I could have the tamales again. If available, request a table on the outdoor patio.

Hey thanks so much for visiting and your kind words on the Tamales. Rosa is a "specialist" in our kitchen who does nothing else for us but hand-prepare Masa and make our tamales. They run to the "authentic/traditional" side of our menu in terms of taste with many fine reviews. Should we ever get a chance to tempt you to... More

I should preface my review by noting I'm a hard audience when it comes to Mexican food. So I actually didn't have high expectations. I was greeted by a nice kid who found me an excellent outside table on a beautiful day. A lot was going on in the area, so I wasn't sure I could get a good table.... More

So, we will take your comments to heart and continue to make improvements. Oh,... More

We ordered take out by phone. The food was hot, fresh, and plenty of it. It was a little pricey but when you see its location you know their rent can't be cheap. It has a great atmosphere and friendly staff.

Thanks so much! We can't always do take-out during the super busy season, but prefer to whenever we can. Always try to keep our portions robust and are thrilled that you gave us a try! Hope your travels can drag you back up to Mammoth sometime soon. Salud! More

This review is a bit late... We visited Mammoth in Dec 2012. After a day on the slopes we had dinner at Gomez's. The service was friendly. The margaritas were fantastic and the food was awesome. We walked in at dusk and immediately felt warmed by the atmosphere. When we left the Village looked lovely with all the fairy lights... More

This review could be influenced by the fact that all tastes good right after a half marathon. But really liked the fact that there was such a wide and varied drink menu, and that the food menu really hit a wide variety of price points. Wasn't after a big meal, and really enjoyed the Chimale (sort of a fried tamale).... More

Thanks so much for stopping by. We always appreciate our Eastern Sierra locals. Can only assume that you experienced the Mammoth 1/2 Marathon and hopefully that was a wonderful experience as well. Certainly a bit cooler up here than in the valley right now. Best wishes to you as we all work hard here on the East side. Would love... More

Got the impression this place would be kicking during the winter season and it's in a fab location. I really enjoyed both the complimentary tortilla chips and tasty salsa and my burrito (chicken), but Andy felt he has had better fajitas in most places he has been to.

We ate at Gomez's a couple of times & went for drinks at the bar almost every night seen as there doesn't seem to be anywhere else open this time of year!

I will start by saying that atmosphere is nice, sports bar style with sports on many screens. The food, just ok. I ordered the Carnitas plate and it consisted of a small pile of meat, some under cooked black beans and an ice cream scoop mound of rice. The meat had good flavor. Had to ask for the guacamole and... More
