Very attentive servers, great food. We had the taco salad and the chicken combo. The taco salad was different from what I've seen at other places---the lettuce and tomato come in the taco bowl, and the chicken, guac, and amazing cheese sauce come on the side, which was nice as it was easier to mix everything together. The salsas that... More

Very average chain Mexican food. Staf5was courteous and attentive. Nothing special. Ok for quick meal. If looking for more local experience, try Herbert's or Garcia's.

The food here is good and the service was very good. Stopped with friends and everyone enjoyed their meals. We had a pitcher of Margaritas that were also very good.

What an amazing place to eat on a budget! My family and I love this place! We come here quite often and they never disappoint! You can always win with the enchiladas or the chicken fajitas

Good chips &salsa and home made tortillas . Really didn't like the meal. I had tacos and my boyfriend also didn't like his meal. His brother really liked it so not sure if it depended on your meal. I ultimately left 3/4 of the meal. I wouldn't go back here as there are many other places.

We tried several dishes, but my favorite was the chips with salsa and green sauce (which must of had some sour cream in it). The wait staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our lunch.

This was supposed to be a Cowboy Favorite! I think NOT! In all fairness, french fries were provided, and they were good, but not worth $17.99! The steak was 1/2 of an inch thick, was laced with gristle, and was very chewy and tasteless. My husband deserved better, and we would have left, but this restaurant was the choice of... More

This was my first time at Mamacita's. My husband loves this place!! Chips and salsa were great! Had the house made margarita - very good! Had the pork carnitas which were excellent. But the best item is the hot tortillas!! Butter - yummy!! The staff are amazing, and just a great place to eat!

We've had our monthly church dinner here a few times a year. The staff is always wonderful especially since we have to have 8 separate tickets. The entrees are extremely large so make sure you realize you're going to be taking them home.

Thank Diane H
