Taco Mamacita's is one of those restaurants where you cannot lose! We went with a group of 12 people and not one person complained or didn't absolutely love their food. )In fact a few of us went back again the following weekend with different people.) If you like the dish description, you are pretty much guaranteed to love the dish when it comes. I can't say enough about how great the food is here- super fresh ingredients, locally sourced where possible and an exciting menu. The service has always been pretty good too although they get very busy so either call ahead or go for a slightly early dinner or late lunch to avoid having to wait a bit.

I went here twice, and tried a variety of tacos: the Sloppy Jose, the General Homeboy, the Memphis, the California Club, the Baja Fish, and the Carnitas. They were all delicious! Also, I tried the Roasted Peruvian Chicken (which was less amazing than the menu would have you believe; I couldn't even taste the lime). I also sampled most of the sides. Every item I tried (except the chicken) was amazing! The prices here are reasonable, there was never a wait, and the service is good! I tried their Pink Cadillac drink, which was delicious, and the Skinny Margarita (AVOID THIS). Anyway, I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to go back.

I knew this would be a fun place to take a group of my friends for a bachelorette night out. Tex-Mex places usually are great for that. However, Taco Mamacita exceeded all my expectations. The unique and flavorful tacos are amazing! So different from your regular quesadilla or enchilada or any other mexican dishes. The margaritas are excellent ( I had the blueberry) and do not skip on the sangria! I got the Sloppy Jose and the General Homeboy (spicy). Bother were fantastic. I had heard a lot about the corn, but wasn't too impressed. I'd probably just get three tacos next time and skip the side.

We were in town visiting some friends and they took us here for dinner. It was late on a Saturday and crowded, but we found a place at the bar and got our table as we were finishing our first drinks so the wait wasn't really bad at all. Our server was great and not only gave what seemed to be her personal opinion about menu items, but made some suggestions for customizing a couple of tacos. The kitchen may not have appreciated it, but we did. The two tacos and a side deal is a good one and allows you to try a couple of different menu items. I thought the General Homeboy was very good; the vegetarian jerk was only so-so. Others at the table got the shrimp BLT and that was a hit among those who tried it. I thought the Mexican street corn was yummy though it came to the table lukewarm. Fine by me since I would have let it cool to that point anyway, but others might get upset. The sweet potato fries were tasty but unsurprising. All in all, a good experience and I'm sure we'll go back.

We had heard good things about this vegan friendly spot on North Shore- I thought it was fine, but nothing special. The service was great, but the food was just okay. I tried one of each of the vegan tacos, and the portions were so large that I couldn't finsh them. The flavors were kind of bland- not terrible, just not particularly great, either. I didn't like the black bean and corn salad at all. It was nice to see that they use a lot of natural, fresh ingredients- the mango salsa was particularly good. I like the concept, and it's a cool place to have a meal, but the food isn't anything to write home about.
