Pretty average Mexican food.... kinda like a Moe's- go in line and order, pick up at the end of the counter. Wasn't expecting that kind of restaurant, so was a little disappointed. However, that being said, the guacamole is really good. Don't bother with the margaritas tho... def not worth the $5.00

Stopped for lunch. I had tacos, my husband had a burrito special and our daughter had one of the kids meals. We were all pleased with our selections.

With so many Tex-Mex places to choose from in the Asheville area - all with similar menus - Mamacitas really stands out as different. The menu is basically limited to tacos and burritos with a choice of pulled pork, fish or chicken. The meats are very good but the 5 star comes from the toppings. Almost too many to name... More

Easily the best burrito in town. I regularly eat the pulled pork with sweet potatoes and kale. Totally YUM. Top that off with a $5 margarita, FREE house made salsas for my chips and I couldn't be a happier chica.

We stopped in with the kids (6 and 4) for a quick lunch, expecting the basic Moe's-type fare. Mamacita's is so much better than your typical taco/burrito joint! The difference is in the ingredients and house-made items. Great options for breakfast, vegetarians and kid friendly. We happened in on a day when pint-sized margaritas were $5 and totally worth it.... More

Had lunch here Wednesday at 1:30 and there was a line out the door. Decor isn't much, but it's homey and more importantly, delicious! Homemade tortillas outstanding, and everything else was fresh and well seasoned. As someone mentioned, the tortillas are too small for the amount of filling, but if you don't mind using a fork or chips or hands... More

I got the steak tacos and my daughter the ground beef. I would recommend to ask them to put only half the amount of condiments to your selection. I love cheese and guacamole, but way too much. Things just oozed everywhere. But, I think most people would like the food, however, the eating area was a disaster. Literally, the wasn't... More

For those of us who appreciate a good taco stand: fresh salsas, local ingredients, sustainable meats, variety of toppings, fresh avocado, warmed tortillas, fresh salsa bar and don't mind diner style seating (I don't), this is a great find. All of the tacos were great: fish, bean/avocado and pulled pork. Lots of local beers, super friendly staff and quick service.... More

The food was very good, fresh ingredients, but the special $2 tacos were very restricted and the menu confusing, you feel rushed trying to get your order completed.

I'm an Asheville local and I have been going here regularly since the first day they opened. Fresh ingredients, reasonably priced, and super yummy!
