“Good Mexican and great bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Now located in the Village, Gomez continues to produce great Mexican food in a more upscale setting. You can eat a huge meal or a light one. The albondigas soup is excellent--doesn't skimp on the meatballs.

We really appreciate your being our guest and it sounds like more than once. Thanks so much. Hope we can encourage you to return to our little paradise up here in Mammoth/Yosemite again soon. We have a lot of summer left and word has it we might be in store for an epic winter! Safe travels. Salud!

“Good food in a great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We ate here because we've walked by it every night while staying in the Village and it's always got people eating so I figured it must be good. It's got a lovely outside area and even a sandbox with toys for kids to play with. The menu is decent and have ok prices. We were all pleased with our meals.

“Surprisingly good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

I always lower my expectations when I get a place like this, thinking it will be a tourist trap with mediocre predictable food at inflated prices. But no, I was pleasantly surprised. The menu has a good bit of flair and my wife and I shared an excellent carnitas plate and green chile pork (tender and tasty) while the kids were very happy with nachos and tacos just the way they like them. We got the 5 of us out for $101 including tax, tip and a couple of grownup drinks, which considering the prime location seemed very reasonable. Recommended.

Thanks so much for stopping by and giving us a chance. We work very hard to shake the stereotypes that many resort restaurants have. We actually are a small group of local family and friends that work hard and really want our guests visiting Mammoth/Yosemite to have a great experience. Thanks for including us in yours. Salud!

“Powerful margaritas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

The food amid service were both very good at Gomez'. Some of e best in the Village I'd say. Best part was the massive tequila menu and the Mammoth Margaritas. To die for!

Given it looks like you know Las Vegas and it's food and bar scene, we are thrilled to hear the word "powerful" used in describing our Mammoth Margarita! That is so fun! We work very hard to make that and our 500+ bottle selection of Tequila top shelf. Anyway, thanks so much for the shout out! Safe Travels. Hope we can tempt you to return again soon, especially when it gets way to hot in Vegas... just saying... Salud! P.S. Rumor has it flights might also be coming in from Vegas this winter... :)

“A Pleasant Surprise in a resort town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

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 return, consider one of our "Chimales" when your off your diet! We take our regular tamale and run it through our fryer and then add a couple of unique sauces. A special fusion spin on our traditional item. Super yummy if you've burnt a few calories on the mountain... Safe Travels! Salud!
