I had dinner with 3 colleagues. We all had salad to start and pasta dishes so did not get to try the pizza. I am a visitor to USA and McAllen but I thought the prices were very reasonable, nice tasty house salad for $3.00 per serve and main pasta courses seemed to be around $8.00-$9.00. I had Lasagna and... More

We enjoy the good here several times a year at least. The pizza crust is flavorful, full, and well baked. Very generous on the toppings. (I like the meatball on the Deluxe). The pasta dishes are good, especially the chipotle chicken pasta. 90% of the time the service is excellent, 10% mediocre. I highly recommend Mama's on North 10th St.

It was close to the hotel with good reviews so why not try it....glad we did. Many wonderful dishes and pizzas to choose from. I had the Chipotle chicken pasta and literally wiped the bowl clean with my garlic toast. Colleague had the shrimp pizza and said it was really good as well. I would have tried his, but my... More

After hearing from the gfs family how good they were, if figured I give them a try. I am a self professed pizza snob. I had high hopes but the service was horrible. We literally waited 15 minutes to order our drinks. On top of it the waiter didn't have the common sense to ask if we were ready to... More

My first trip to Mama's was after craving pizza for several days. To be fair, it seems that many people like their pizza; I wasn't impressed. I have heard that the pizza you grew up with, turns into what you believe pizza should be. This may be true, and there's nothing Mama's can do about that. The crust / dough... More

I come here just under a dozen times a year, I love the pizza but the service just keeps getting worse every time. I've overlooked the service in the past, but after our last visit I've just given up on this place. They always seem to be understaffed. Our last visit, they forgot the straws so went to get them....

A little pricey but well worth it. Pesto Pizza was my favorite. We were a party of 15 ordering lots of different items from menu and everyone had great things to say.

We went a group of us and ordered different dishes and everyone really enjoyed their meals. Even my sister who must eat gluten free was able to pick any pizza or pasta dish from the menu - how great is that! The dishes were served piping hot, the soup looked delicious and so did the chicken marsala. Our pizza was... More
