“This place is fantastic!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2009

We were camping at Garner this summer when we went off to see the sites and ended up in Leakey. Honestly, we did not believe we would find a decent mexican restaurant. We came across Mama Choles and decided to stop and eat. This was the best decision we could have made. The food was surprisingly delicious. We had 10 people with us and they were very accommodating. The prices were very reasonable. We were so excited to find this restaurant. Unfortunately we found this place on the last day of our trip. We wanted to go back again, but had no time. We will be back again next summer!!

“Mama Chole's is Fantastic!!”
Reviewed March 23, 2009

We travel to Leakey from Lufkin twice a year and found this little place the last time we were there (in October). The food was fantastic and the iced tea was fresh and cold. It is a small place but when we went, it was later in the afternoon and wasn't crowded. We will definately be back in April! If you're in Leakey, you have to try this place!! Yummy!

“Fresh!”
Reviewed February 28, 2007

Just a small place, but don't be fooled! When in Leakey my husband and I always stop by Mama Chole's for a delicious lunch. It can be very crowded with locals so if you can get there early. Everything is made to order and hot and fresh. My favorite...the chicken chalupas !!! Lisa M.

“Mmmm Mmmm Mama Chole's”
Reviewed March 16, 2005

Mama Chole's Mexican Restaurant will offer the entire family a fabulous dining experience. Anytime you're served warm freshly fried corn tortilla chips and hot sauce followed by top-notch cheesy enchiladas and carne guisada wrapped in home-made flour tortillas you know you've arrived in Hill Country Tex-Mex heaven.

The prices are outstanding and the proprietor will visit your table with a smile.

Don't miss this local Leakey gem.
