We had a party of 9 and they accommodated us at two tables, right next to each other. The food was terrific! I had fish tacos, rice and beans. The fish was moist and flavorful. My hubby had a chimichanga that was huge! The beef was great! We also had a red wine that was good (the Cabernet).

Went here because of the reviews. The chips and salsa were tasty and the soup was yummy (the one with meatballs in it). Unfortunately, the burritos were very soggy. They need to drain the meat and should toast the burrito. This would greatly improve the quality.

Large cold pitchers of beer and hot fresh Mexican fare. A much needed refueling after a long day of kayaking. Very reasonable prices. The fried ice cream was huge.

For Mammoth, a pretty good Mexican restaurant that gives fairly huge tasty portions at reasonable prices, a rarity here. Service was very good too. Soups were good, salads, wings , carne asada and combo plates were not exceptional but tasty. Chili relleno and rice & beans outstanding. We ate lunch at 2 pm after riding the towns bike trail; no...

Why can't they make good Mexican food? Some prefer this restaurant, but have they tasted "real" or quality Mexican food?

Tip to travelers: If the restaurant is busy, try going upstairs to the cantina where they have the same menu. Wife had excellent Taco and enchilada combo and I had the shrimp & steak fajitas. Portions are huge and food is great. Service is also outstanding whether you dine in the cantina or downstairs in the restaurant.

In the Mammoth area, this is one of the best Mexican restaurants because of it's choices of food, especially seafood and the quantity of the meals. We were amazed at how large the meal was--most of the time, we had to take food home. Their lobster fajitas and lobster tacos or enchilada are wonderful. their fish tacos are prepared with... More
