Midwest Mexican... You gotta be kidding. Well if you like wood fired rotisserie chicken then this is your spot. This small restaurant scream Mexican cantina. The kinda place that should have no menu, let alone one in English. But alas you are lucky, they have a menu and of course it is in English. Yes, they are famous for their... More

Took my family there as they rave about this place. Decor is "elegantly mex-Tex shabby", classic old school, anti-chain restaurants style. Good Mexican food, not world class, but good. My grandkids liked it and it was simple, if you know what I mean. Good spot, very relaxed and easy to enjoy.

Our favorite Mexican joint in the Lou. Of course it's just a dive and you order at the counter. Help yourself to the various salsas with various degrees of fire. All of their food is great and freshly made.

Okay, I check it out first because it was listed as one of Saint Louis best restaurants. Honestly, I didn't see why. The food was plentiful and good, but not outstanding. The decor was tacky and old. I sat on the verdana the first time I was there. It was crowded, cold and noisy. The chairs were hard. My friend... More

One does not usually associate St. Louis with good Mexican or TexMex food, but there are a couple of really good ones here. Nachomammas is an exceptional restaurant offering both traditional Mexican as well as TexMex entrees. The steak fahitas are outstanding. They have three levels of hotness for thier salsa so one may choose one to fit ones taste.... More

We love to get help from our close friend Google whenever we travel to find new places to try. Just the name, "Nachomama's" jumps right out at you from the world wide web and we decided we had to try it out. It was definitely a great experience. The fajita plate has steak, chicken or fish options. I had steak,... More

Scrumptious steak tacos! Beans and rice are so flavorful. The sour cream style enchilada was incredible (we had chicken, but any filling would have been delicious smothered in that sauce). We had a terra cotta pot of chips, queso and helped ourselves to the salsa bar. Tomatillo was our favorite! Gotta admit I didn't expect it to be that good... More

Small little place tucked away from the city centre, this place is so reminiscent of Mexico. Ordering is at the counter with a wide choice of Tacos, Nachos, burritos and salsa and Chips. Some f the dips get quite spicy and tickles the taste buds. The food was awesome which comes with beans and brown rice on the side. The... More

I ordered a beef burrito, enchilada style. The enchilada sauce is super wet and turns the tortilla to mush. Inside the burrito I couldn't find anything but the tiniest little bits of beef, a total ripoff. The inside of the burrito was a huge soupy mess. This is a great place to come if you don't have any teeth. Rice... More

First, watch out if you use a credit card as they charge a .25 cent credit card processing fee. Second, we ask for a simple tortilla with steak in it and we had to send it back 4 TIMES. They couldn't get something that simple. I told them 4 times no sour cream as I am allergic and it kept... More
