“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Really, the food makes up for the cramped location and average service. It's also reasonably priced. The atmosphere is neat, but it's a very small place and often crowded.

Definitely try it out during "off" hours.

“Cute Spanish enchilada house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Small downtown place with limited menu ( enchiladas and some apps) but food excellent. Sangria and beer too. It's a must visit if you travel there. In a sea of chain places Mama Ladas stands out.

“Worst food I've ever eaten”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Horrible food. NOT fresh, NOT mexican, NOT real.

It deeply saddens me that people of South Dakota think this place is even edible. GET A GRIP! Go traveling and try some real food and you will see this place should not even exist.

There is no such thing as cocktail olives in mexican salsa. Don't try to be a "fancy" chef by experimenting with these horrible flavor combinations. If you are really such a gourmet you wouldn't served CANNED food that is MICROWAVED!!

AVOID at all costs.

“MMM- Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We have been here twice and love it. The enchiladas are simply delicious and the wine is fabulous with great selections. The restaurant is small and intimate and we love that. The service is extraordinary. The guacamole was so good. Only negative is that to get to their washroom you have to go outside and then down stairs to a basement tiny room.
