Despite the ranking, we decided to give it a try and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was well prepared and delicious. We tried the shrimp and birria tacos. Service was quick and attentive. From the street it looks as though there is limited parking but there is more in the back.

It appears to be a family owned business. Food was great ... As was the service. Portions were very generous. We ate here three times ... One dinner and two lunches during our week long stay at Woods Lodge above Lake George. Our favorite part of the menu was the Tacos a La Carta ... Interesting choices prepared just right.... More

This is our first time in Mammoth Lakes and wanted a restaurant that was close to our hotel so we found this on on Trip Advisor and tried it. We read the reviews and decided to try it. We had a wonderful experience, the food was great and it was half the price of the restaurant we chose last night!... More

It was a visit to this place during Labor Day long weekend. We reached here around 8:00 PM and were seated and provided complimentary Nachos and Salsa (very tasty). We ordered our food and that's where the ordeal starts. We waited for more than an hour but the food never arrived. We asked the lady on how much time it... More

The restaurant is very small and seems to be family operated. The food was very good and the service was very good as well.

First time here (for lunch), an really loved it. Felt like being in a porch of someone's home in rural Mexico. Service was friendly and helpful, food was fresh, authentic, hearty and very tasty, from the table salsa to the plates of machaca, chicken & rice soup, pescada tacos and enchiladas at our table. Cozy and friendly, and just perfect... More

We were waited on by an older woman who was very unfriendly. Only thing I didn't care for was a lot of family members etc. walking in and out of kitchen... More

We did read good reviews of The Loco Frijoles, we were hungry, we went for lunch and received an excellent meal. Preparation, presentation and service was great. Food tasted fresh and authentic Mexican flavor. We recommend this place highly!

Popped in here purely because it was close to our hotel, but what a surprise! Real family atmosphere, and delicious food my whole family enjoyed. They had various specials on offer, and even had some entertainment in the form of a guest singer. Will be back!!

Thank sanoguy
