“Massive portions and cheap”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Food was great but the village is dead after 8 at present. People must eat earlier here. Also there is no free parking. You have to pay in the ski lot opposite 24 hours a day.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Looks like you may have traveled a long distance to visit our little paradise here in Mammoth/Yosemite! Wow! Thanks so much. All of us here really enjoy sharing our playground with others. Safe travels. Snowing hard the next few days, wish we could tempt you to return. Cheers!

Sounds like you stopped by on one of our more popular nights! Thanks so much we really appreciate it... So happy you enjoyed your visit. All of us here in this remote paradise (Mammoth/Yosemite) know that our guests have many choices for where to travel. Thanks for including us this year. Snowed a bunch last night and more headed in. Hope we can tempt you to return this spring. Salud!

So sorry the dish you ordered didn't work. We certainly understand that tastes vary but wish we would have had the chance to provide something else to sample (and hopefully enjoy). Our menu is pretty diverse so I guess we would hope that another item(s) might hit the spot. All that said, thanks so much for giving us a look AND for making Mammoth/Yosemite part of your travel plans. All of us up here in our little resort town really appreciate it. More snow on the way so we are hoping our season does a little catching up this spring. Salud!

“Great Margaritas, Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Gomez's is a very good restaurant. It is quite casual, very good menu for kids, while still having a nice atmosphere, great food and some of the best Margaritas anywhere. They take Margaritas very seriously at Gomez's. Be sure to go for on-the-rocks, the blended ones are not particularly special. The service was very good. I think this is the best overall restaurant in Mammoth, and its prices are quite reasonable by Mammoth standards. If it were near my house, I would go quite often!

Tomin, So happy you continue to enjoy the experience at Gomez's! We certainly understand that we are not perfect, but we work hard and enjoy serving others especially in this resort atmosphere. Looks like a big storm coming in this next few days so we are setting up to have a great March. Hope to tempt you to return as our resort conditions continue to improve... Salud!

“A Regular Part Of Our Trip.”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Dinner at Gomez has always been a part of our visit to Mammoth. We have followed them from the little A frame to the more elaborate place they have today. The food and variety are always good, and the bar diverse. Happy Hour always has great deals. Tacos, guacamole and wet burritos are our favs. Norma!!y I would have given 5 stars, but on this last visit we felt the food quality had slipped a bit. Hope its temporary. Still the best Mexican in Mammoth.
