We are mid 30's...Pull up to the bar on a recommendation by a friend. It is an older crowd, classic rock band - we were gonna "dip" but decided to stay. The atmosphere is great, food great, drinks great, and the people are awesome!! Next trip to Mazatlan we are coming back!

A friend has been coming here for over a decade and suggested we come here to check out the house band "Rex". I hope I spelled it right.

If you want to taste the best traditional Christmas dinner then you better be here. Cindy really knows how to cook and she makes the turkey, ham and all the veggies taste fabulous. THEN there are the deserts. Two years in a row we have spent our Christmas at Twisted Mama's and not been disappointed. Thank you Cindy

Fast and friendly service that always impresses me. The food is good and reminds me very much of home cooking that can be hard to find in Mexico. That said there are local touches to the menu and a killer Margarita that needs a mention.

An out of the way place with decent prices and good live nightly entertainment. Worth checking out! The bartender made authentic Mexican Coffees while I was there. Quite a show! Very Cool!

When you hear the name Twisted Mama's you think of just another bar. Well I t is not another bar. They have fabulous American home made food! Not only is the food great but the employees are the best.

5 stars for twisted chicken dish at Twisted Mama's. Your choice of mild to hot creamy sauce. Diablo fish is a spicy favorite of my husbands. You would never guess that a restaurant down a back alley with plastic chairs could have so much good food and entertainment.
