My grandma and I have gotten to where we come here during happy hour because she loves their combination nachos. I like the cold beer. She also likes those margaritas. $2.50 during happy hour.

We found a local Mexican restaurant that is located in an attached parking lot to our hotel (Embassy Suites). If it had not been raining, we could’ve walked, but it was raining very hard, so we drove through the parking lot to the restaurant. Mamarita’s...More

Good food at a great price. I love their salsa bar. The salsa is fresh and the seasoned chips are yummy! This place has stood the test of time and has been there for over 20 years.

Went with a friend. I am on a low fat diet and ordered the fayita saladThe lettuce was inedible. I took the salad back to the counter and they did offer to make me something else to eat. They have no low fat/healthy options.

This is an unbelievably bad Mexican Food restaurant. The candy flavored Margaritas have no alchohol, the chips are sprinkled with a weird powder, the salsa is flavorless, the food bland and the service bad. I cannot even imagine how this place is still in business...More
