“Always great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

They have excellent fish tacos with Baja sauce which I have been getting for years. Always a great place to go for a quick, excellent and cheap meal. Many times we go other more expensive places and say "should have went to Mamacita's".

“Appears simple, but flavors are complex and ingredients natural”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I have recently taken several out-of-town visitors to Mamacita's on Biltmore Avenue in Asheville. It never fails to satisfy, as service is swift and friendly, the choices are sufficiently varied to satisfy a wide range of palates. No overloading with beans and chiles.

“Fast, Cheap, & Good Burritos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Mamacitas is a local favorite for fish tacos. My favorite here is the Chipotle Chicken Burrito, but it's all good. It's not a fancy restaurant, just a basic, good food place.

“The ideal business model”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

After about three years of eating at this restaurant on a ridiculously regular basis, I can assure that this is the closest you'll ever find to perfect. Prices that seem almost too good to be true, INCREDIBLE food every single time, fresh and healthy ingredients, super fast, friendly and attentive staff, plenty of seating, convenient parking...and all consistently. I can't stress how amazing this place is. I've eaten here multiple times in one day more than I'd like to admit. Definitely one of Asheville's treasures.

“Perfect burrito at excellent price”

This place is better than Chipotle, cheaper, and has $1 Dos Equis beers on Fridays. What more could you ask for?
