Best Margaritas in San Marcos, hands down. This place is an old reliable that never fails to disappoint. Great for dinner with family. Good service. Only negative comment is they were not as prepared for a private party we had there over Christmas.

Food was hot and fresh. Taste was good, but not memorable. We got the fajitas. The tortillas tasted fresh. The meat and sides were good, but not outstanding.

This is not my favorite place to get Mexican food but it is good for the price and the service is wonderful, the food comes out quickly, they give you a large amount of chips and salsa to start with. The drinks are good and strong.

Mamacita's isn't located only a few blocks off Interstate 35. They cater to families as well as large parties. Our party of 22 was seated immediately but the service was a bit slow due to the size of our party and the normal weekend crowd. The food was very good and hot. Only a few exits north of the Outlet... More

Went there yesterday for dinner. I didn't get the drink I ordered. The service was sub par; felt like the waitress we had was new and didn't know certain things. Will not be returning.

We have been going to San Marcos for years and for the past few have enjoyed dining here. The food is always delicious and the service excellent. The tortillas made onsite are wonderful.

This was the second time while vacariou my family dined here. We were in a large group of 14+. Needless to say only dine here in small groups. Our waiter & manager had a difficult time keeping track of our orders. My youngest never received his meal. Decent food but there are so many other choices for large groups. If... More

I had dinner and drinks during Happy Hour before the NBA Finals game. The chicken sour cream enchiladas were great and the margaritas were great and strong. I will definitely return.

This restaurant has a wide variety of food and drinks. The restaurant is quite large. The selections are some typical Tex/Mex fare as well as steaks and other meat dishes. The portions are very large. We ordered one item and shared it. Overall, well pleased with the selections, service and quality of the food.. Only negative, because the dining area... More
