First of all, its not cheap or to expensive, BUT you need to know that they give you plenty of food. We started off with the queso flameado with sausage and poblano peppers. It was extremely flavorful, and not to spicy. It was a great appetizer for a table of 6 and they flamed it at the table and served... More

In Texas, at least one night a week is reserved for "Mexican Food", even if, or especially if you are away from home. On a recent weekend in New Braunfels we had to have our fix and chose Mamacita's a known name in the Mexican restaurant business. The service was excellent, starting with the greeters. The condition of the restaurant... More

I don't give out many 5-stars. However, Mamacitas has the rare combination of excellent food, fantastic service, at an affordable price that deems it worthy of 5 stars. We had a group of 8, and were seated very quickly. Our server was perfect: friendly without being overbearing, quick and efficient without rushing us. All folks rated the food well, it... More

We have eaten at the Mamacita's in San Marcus more, but all of their restaurants are equally good. Our favorite is the green dip that they bring with their salsa and chips. We usually get some to bring home. All of our servers have been great.

First time in New Braunfels and stopped here for a quick lunch. What a pleasant surprise. The sever was on his game the meals were large and were spot on. The tortillas made fresh added to the experience. Can't wait to go back and try some of the other meals we saw others eating (Chile Relleno and Flaming Cheese Queso).... More

Mamacita's is our favorite place to eat in the entire Texas Hill Country! Their fried shrimp meal is the best we have eaten anywhere. Their Mexican menu is varied and delicious. Service is always prompt and unobtrusive. A really great place to dine.

Clean, attractive atmosphere. Good service. Tortillas made in sight. Very reasonable prices. Wonderful chips and salsa/dips served immediately. Extensive menu to chose from. I love the tortilla soup and salad with chicken. Enough to take home for another meal. I always look forward to stopping on the way to San Antonio. It's easy to locate, right off the highway. Easy...

The meal was fantastic and the service was even better. The Food was authentic and the flavor was unbrlievable. The hotel reommended it and I was not expecting very much, but was so surprised. It was a great treat after a long day. The desert I took to the hotel was better than the food. I think everyone should try... More

Our first visit here, so not sure what to expect. Was very pleased with the menu selection and the food was very good. Our waitress was very attentive, but not over bearing. There were 3 of and we each had a different selection and all were pleased. Desserts were excellent.

We had a nice dining experience at Mamacia's. The service was top notch - helpful with menu suggestions, frequent drink refills, and very friendly. I had the appetizer sampler and it was huge. In fact, everyone took home food. Tortillas made fresh on site were excellent.

Thank Dean S
