We arrived at our hotel at 9.30pm on a Saturday night on Marco Island, and needed food after a long flight. We were directed to the 'strip' by the hotel and found Nacho Mamas. We all love Mexican so it was an instant choice.
Good atmosphere inside, attentive service and tasty food - we had the chicken breast, bacon and cheese burger (superb) and the Nacho house burger (a little ordinary as burgers go). My only beef with this place was that the draught beer was served in plastic cups! No idea why.
The menu did look very good for Mexican food, and we might return this week to try it :)

My wife and I had lunch. We both ordered the same thing, Baja fish tacos with the fish blackened (the other choice was fried). I eat fish tacos at home (I live in a beach resort town), so I like to think I'm a fairly good judge of good vs. bad fish tacos, and these were great.

The fish (they didn't identify what type of fish) was perfectly cooked, moist and well-seasoned, and there was more than enough for the three tacos. They serve the entire filet laying over three open soft taco shells. Each shell already has cabbage, tomato and cheese on it, you cut the fish into the portions you want and build your own tacos from there.

They don't serve it with lime wedges, but I asked for some and it made a great dish even better.

The plate also comes with Spanish rice and your choice of black beans or refined beans.

We also ordered guacamole and chips to share. The guac seemed fresh-made and delicious, and the chips were in four colors ... they had the expected beige, red and blue, but also had green chips, an interesting touch.

The only reason I rated Nacho Mama's a 4 instead of 5 out of 5 was the service. Our waitress was badly overworked ... she was the bartender and also had about half the tables in the place. I'm sure she's a very attentive server when she's not so overworked, so I'm not blaming her, but as a diner it was sometimes a trying experience when we wanted something and couldn't even get her attention because she was just so busy serving so many other tables as well as the bar patrons.

If we're in Marco Island again we'd definitely go back.

Wonderful nacho appetizers, with unique toppings and delicious guacamole. Enchiladas were quite good; shrimp and scallop fajitas very tasty. Generous portions, bring your appetite!

Stopped in for a quick bite. Fresh and well prepared. Reasonable prices for both food & drink and good portions too.
