“#1 Craving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I get the veggie mama at least a few times a month, sometimes once a week! They have great specials and feature a lot of local ingredients. Not your typical burrito joint, but always good. Service is ALWAYS pretty rude, but if they keep making me a burrito I love, I'll keep coming back.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

I had a big burrito that would have been great but I'm a very picky eater and there is cucumber or something odd in their pico which ruined the whole burrito for me. Wish they would stick with classic pico because the meat was fantastic. Also their chips were mediocre and wasn't a fan of their mild/hot sauces either

“Authentic Mexican fast food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

The best thing about Mamacita's is it is not like every other Mexican burrito joint -- and there are plenty of them in Asheville. Right on a main drag in town, this busy little place churns out creative, tasty burritos and other goodies. Mama's veggie burrito, for example, is an unusual mix of kale, sweet potatoes and quinoa or beans. Sounds weird but tastes great... very Asheville! Give Mamacita's a try if you're tired of run of the mill Mexican fast food and you won't be disappoointed.

“Fantastic Quick Tex-Mex food...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Loved this place. Tried it first because of an Asheville Deal, but even though it is similar to Moe's and Chipotle, it has its own flair for sure. Love the pulled pork, I got it as a "naked" burrito and ordered it with chips. They serve Cheerwine on the fountain which is a NC staple. Great, fresh ingredients...Go! your stomach will thank you!
