We had the most disgusting, poorly put together meal this evening at Mamacita's. Not only were special instructions ignored on the preparation, but the food itself was very unappetizing and unappealing. My husband suggested it tasted like school-cafeteria food, and that was a perfect comparison. We remember when it first opened here in New Braunfels, and it was a little better back then, but mainly it was nice to have an alternative to Adobe Cafe and what few local fav's there were at the time. But it has just gone downhill and where they place managers all over to ask you how everything is, they don't mean it sincerely, because when you present them with a problem they may offer to try and rectify the matter (MAY) but they are very tight when it comes to reimbursement; even when the matter was completely their fault. We will be going to Nopalitos or Chuy's in the future. This place stinks.

If you are from somewhere other than Texas you might like their bland Mexican food and high prices. Atmosphere? This is south texas...go look for the real thing. Their Tamales -- came out of the can I think. THIS IS THE WORST PLACE TO EAT MEXICAN FOOD IN THE AREA....It's Fake Mex! and way overpriced...

The food was below average for even the most basic Mexican fare. The restaurant was clean, the service was friendly, the atmosphere was good and the margarita was adequate. Since Tex-Mex is really all about the great food and you have thousands of Tex-Mex options in Texas, I wouldn't bother with this one.
