We tend to go to Gomez's on off times, and we usually share their carnitas plate. It is always delicioso!

Mexican food can be tricky any where. This place had a good drink and food in the village. I liked it had indoor and outdoor seating. It offered a good variety of regular items and new Mexican dishes.

"Tricky" is a great way to put it. Many believe Mexican food all fits in one box, but even in Mexico flavors can vary radically depending on the region so there is always a chance that our approach doesn't match someones experience. To help we like to think of ourselves as Latin Inspired and roam a broader swatch of ideas... More

At the Village Plaza, you are spoilt for choice, we decided to visit Gomez's to sample their tequila. Whilst the tequila is great, the food somewhat missed the mark for my palette. We ordered wings to start and there where drowning in chipotle sauce so fairly messy to eat. We then had the ribs and pulled pork carnitas to follow.... More

Sorry some of the items you tried didn't suit your taste a bit better but we understand that happens sometimes even though we would be happier if everyone found something on... More

My friend and I visited for the first time for an early lunch last weekend and we sat inside in the main dining room. It was a little too chilly outside for us, but there were a few people enjoying the large patio. There were heat lamps out there and it looked like the restaurant provided festive little shoulder wraps... More

The appetizers are already big. We'd ask for burrito and quesadilhas. It was a lot and great. I would suggest the margarita as well, but the beers was already very good.

How very fun! By the way, that "wall" of tequila now has over 500 bottles. :) We believe we are the largest Tequileria at our elevation in the world and one of the largest at any height north of Mexico. Probably a top 2-3. Anyway, all in good fun right here in Mammoth/Yosemite for our guests to enjoy. Hope we... More

My family absolutely loves this restaurant!! We actually always stay in June Lake (nearby), but we always drive to the village to eat at Gomez's. The food is fantastic, and they have a nice happy hour. They do tend to get very very busy on Friday and Saturday nights during peak season, but that's to be expected. The only bummer... More

We ate at Gomez's Mexican Restaurant twice on our recent visit to Mammoth Lakes and loved the food. The chile rellenos were some of the best we've ever had. Also, the waiters were very nice, especially our waitress, Maria. She was so welcoming and attentive and cordial.

So glad you enjoyed the rellenos! We take a lot of pride in those as they are made by hand fresh in our kitchen. Many safe travels. Hope we can tempt you to return to Mammoth/Yosemite again soon. Salud! More

Rushed and bland says it all really. Poor flavour. Go there for convenient location only. Staff friendly if you're not bothered a bout the food

In addition to delicious food, this restaurant has excellent service and a great location in Mammoth Village. The food was so good that we went back for dinner a couple of days later.
