“Best authentic Mexican restaurant in Mammoth!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Read reviews before eating at The Loco Frijoles! Everything everyone said about this restaurant was "Right On"! The serves is amazing, very attentive and very friendly! The food is definitely authentic! My husband had the three combo dinner, "Loved it!" Son had the crane asade plate, "Loved it!" I had the chimichanga plate, "To die for!" And our little girl had the kids chicken nuggets and fries, "Loved it!" The price is reasonable a lot cheaper then Roberto's!

“Great Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We tried it based on the reviews. The food was excellent, service great. This is a small family run restaurant that offers truly good food at reasonable prices. Better than Gomez's or Roberto's, which are very over priced for what they serve. Loco Frijole will be getting their liquor license soon, so cold beers are coming. My wife had shrimp tacos and I had the taco and tamale plate. Chips and salsa are served complimentary.

“Mexican hide-away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

This was a great authentic family-owned Mexican restaurant. We talked at length with the owners and were pleased to find out that all the food, salsa, etc. are homemade. The food was awesome and the service was just as good.

“Just what I was looking for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

Started with a fish ceviche to stadia that was bright, fresh, and flavorful. Added an al pastor and birria taco. Both tacos were amazing! The pastor was sweet and melted in my mouth. The birria had a nice spice kick from the sauce.

Awesome meal...and with a drink was just over $15.

Amazing.

“Very tasty Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

I drove by this place last night and noticed quite a few cars in front so I decided to stop there and try it for lunch today. I just had a couple tacos (Al Pastor and Shrimp) ala carte and was very pleased at the quantity of meat, the overall taste and presentation. The people at the next table had burritos and they were HUGE. I'd definitely go back to this place and highly recommend it for a tasty meal.
