Although the space is small, the food is over the top. Great chips and salsa. I ordered the chicken enchilada and beef enchilada. They were excellent. I will definitely tell others about this restaurant.

The restaurant itself is super small, and hopefully you don't have to use the restroom, if so take someone with you. The food was amazing except they only offer shrimp enchiladas on weekends which sucks. Over all though I will most definitely go back to this place

I swung in and ordered the beef enchiladas. Along with it, I got the complimentary side of chips and an extra side of guac. All very good! I was happy with the meal but also, the restaurant had a very cozy feel about it. Small and charming.

I love Mama's Ladas! Delicious Mexican food in a sort of hole-in-the-wall place downtown. Gluten free substitutions can be made, which is a bonus!

This is a quaint small restaurant that only serves enchiladas. The folks were friendly. The atmosphere is really wonderful Can't seat many people so get there early. Went on a Tuesday evening early and the place filled up. Thanks to the hotel for recommending and for ratings on Trip Advisor. Worth a stop if you like enchiladas!

Went here for the first time today. I was previously a little skeptical due to the small exterior and entrance area. It was fabulous inside, the food was very fresh, served quickly with a smile. Their salsa has everything including the kitchen sink in it and it was very good. The menu is limited but super delicious. This will be... More

I love the chicken enchilada here. I am a regular. It's a locally owned business with very friendly service every time. It's a small venue, so you might want to arrive early to ensure you get a spot. Know that they have a very small menu, usually chicken or beef enchilada or nachos. They sometimes have 1 or 2 more... More

Big ol' homemade enchilladas and large pour glasses of wine. After a long day of driving what more could you want? Friendly hometown service and an easy walking distance around downtown (LOVE the art walk sculptures all over Sioux Falls), this place is a great respite with good people, good food, and a sweet homey atmosphere that is small, intimate,...

Enchiladas. That's it, that is what they do, and they do it very well. Start with chips and salsa that is unlike any other restaurant, add in some hand prepared guacamole and you have a great meal in a quaint restaurant in downtown Sioux Falls. Service is always friendly and efficient. Cold beverages to include sodas, beers, wine, and sangria... More
