Happy Hour??? Yes please! I need a Margarita, Stat!!! Seriously, I must say we really like to go here on Sunday mornings brunch after church at least once a month. The enchiladas with the egg on top is what my wife loves. My son can get pancakes, and I can get breakfast tacos, Migas (prob. my favorite) or many other... More

Went for my birthday, the drinks were fantastic! It gets pretty busy and usually pretty loud in side but the food is good. When I went the staff seemed pretty short handed but over all I would go back.

Mammacita's is a place you either like a lot or not much... if you like the taste of the food, everything else seems okay. I've been there so many times over the year that it no longer holds any attraction for me. There are better Tex-Mex places nearby. On an upbeat note, they have a large room available for special...

Been here twice in the last couple of months to meet friends and had high hopes, but it is clear the cooks and waitstaff have lost love for their jobs. No attempt is made to ensure the customer is happy. On both occasions, we... More

That shoul attract attention! And it's true! Now for the food. The red salsa served with chips is amazing, and restaurants always get it right when served at room temp, or better yet, warm...we use the salsa for the food too. We are never disappointed with fajitas here opt for the combos!

Ordered NASA combination plate. Received other than what I ordered along with my wife's order. Waiter argued that is was what I ordered. Got menu and showed waiter it was NOT the NASA plate. Received another place that was NOT the right one. By now the wife has finished her plate. I sent the plate back and requested the bill.... More

The food and service use to be better than it is now. The service is not very courteous nor professional. The food is not as good as it use to be. Not real hot when it comes to your table
