“Nothing to be excited about”
Reviewed June 15, 2008

For some reason every time I'm visiting family in Pasadena, they insist on going to Mamacita's, and to be honest I've never had a meal there that was palatable. The two saving graces are the charro beans and the salsa, both of which are on the high end of average. Most of the food is unseasoned, poor quality meat. The service is always lacking, and their management is abhorrent. There hasn't been a single time I've walked into Mamacita's and walked out happier for the experience.

“I usually go to the one...”

I usually go to the one on Nasa rather than this one, but it's all really good food. The green sauce is great.
