We lost Gramma - - there was a mysterious fire and BANG - - - we're on Hertel Ave doing " the kids own me now " food. Wouldn't recommend it - - the endless chips and salsa is always nice - - but you can do that at home .

Had our doubts about eating here based on previous negative reviews, but there was a recent positive review, and about four years ago we attended a friend's birthday party here and the food was good then, so we decided to try it again. We also had an entertainment coupon, so that helped as the prices were a bit high for... More

Gramma Mora's is always my go too. Very casual relaxed environment. Basic burritos, and tacos. Love their rice.

Food is mediocre at best. There are several better places to get Mexican food in buffalo. The margaritas are made with pre-made mix you can buy at a liquor store. Also, the service is very slow and not attentive- which is shocking because it wasn't very busy when I went. Would not recommend this place to anyone looking for good... More

Burrito Ranchero I think is the best dish. Comes with two sides.... I doubled up on the Sopa. Service is great. Had the Fried Ice cream for dessert.

I recently had dinner with my son and friends at Gramma Moras. This is a great family owned and operated restaurant with actual home cooked Mexican food. The food was delicious and the portions were large. The service was friendly and accommodating. It has a casual dining atmosphere and they had no problem with us sitting back and visiting after...
