Best local spot for lunch or cheap dinner. Best fish tacos I have ever eaten. You can get two fish tacos with a basket of chips and a drink for under $9. great california style mexican food. We are local and eat there all the time.

Ate at Mamacita's recently before a show, and we really enjoyed it! I would agree that it is basically a higher tiered Moe's or Chipotle. A definite step up from those places. The ingrediants and salsa are very fresh and very good. We will go back again the next time we go through Asheville!

I love this place because you never know what they will have in addition to the burritos, tacos, and such...today they had sopes filled with a red pumpkin seed sauce. The Mexican ladies make them to order and the pork is local from Hickory Nut Gap farm. All this for $8!!! Love it !

This is a great place if you want a quick and affordable meal in downtown Asheville. It's a very casual order at the counter or take out place. The burritos are huge and you get to choose all the fresh toppings you want to add as they make your meal right in front of you. They also have inexpensive delicious margaritas. I can't think of anywhere else where you can get such a substantial quality meal for this low of a price in all of Asheville.

I work in Asheville every Tuesday evening, very close to Mamacita's so my dinner choice is obvious. I have to eat at 5:30 because by 6:00 there is always a major lineup. The people seem to recognize value. If I had a restaurant, it would be just like Mamacita's. Subway layout and procedures, but the food doesn't come in the back door from SYSCO. They cook their own and you can see them doing it. The seating area is nicely separated from the pickup area. The decor is nice. The people are friendly. My average bill for dinner is under $7. Can't wait til Tuesday. Please stay away.
