I guess this is a good place to drink beer since there are always a few trucks out front. That said it was the worst attempt at Mexican food I can remember.

Definitely Real deal Mexican food and real busy place on a Sunday at lunchtime. Real popular place of the area food was OK service was so so could've been better. But again it was Sunday around lunchtime and they were extremely busy. Will stop back again and give the place another try but at this point I would rate it... More

The one thing you can count on is that you should be ready to eat when you order because they will have it out in two minutes or less.

I've eaten at Mamasita's over the years and can agree with some of the other reviews that it has really tarnished over the years. The portion size has definitely shrunk while the prices has increased. The drinks (alcoholic) are watered down. I got a shot of Bacardi and it was like it had water in it. I ordered my usual,...

Excellent Mexican food at an economical price. The chicken fajitas were great and the home-made, hot chips and salsa were excellent.

We love this place. We live about 7 miles away and this is our quick, easy go to restaurant for the Mexican fix. Staff is friendly as well. :)

I have been to many Mexican restaurants in my life, all around the country, and this one is definitely in the top 5. We had a party of 5 and everything that everyone had was absolutely delicious and our waiter was fantastic!! I don't write reviews often but they definitely deserve 5 stars! We are not from around here and... More

Mamasita's Mexican restaurant is an enjoyable restaurant. The servers and owner greet you with smiles. The chips and salsa are quickly brought to your table. The "volcano" is a delectable mix of chicken, steak and shrimp along with the usual peppers and onions. This dish is big enough to be shared by two. If, however, you hungrier than you've ever...

Friendly staff meet you at the door of this Mexican style restaurant. The front includes a bar and the back room has booths as well as tables. The food is authentic and reasonably priced. Great frozen Margaritas and Sangria, and you can mix them for an interesting flavor.
