We have eaten here twice. Enchiladas are very good. The main room looks like a Mexican village with little lights in the 2 story ceiling that look like stars. Staff is very nice.

The atmosphere at Mamacitas is probably one of the best in the San Antonio area. The service was very good and the salsas weren't bad but that's where it ends. Ordered enchiladas with charro beans and rice. All had no flavor. Some comino and chile powder could have added some flavor. I've been to many Mexican restaurants in San Antonio... More

The food was great and the service even better. It is laid back and luncheon specials were just that "very good and reasonablly priced". Each plate was enough for two people.

Service was great and food came out extra fast and really hot. Had a late lunch and dverything was good . The avacado cream sauce is fantastic. The red szlsz is mild so most people will like it. Not hot enough for me.

Met there with 6 others, 4 first timers. I had been prior and was ok. This time however, the wait for food was terrible. We waited 52 min for food - never taken more than 15 before. The waitress kept saying it was coming but finally told us there is a really big party in the back and everyone else... More

Floated the comal river during the day and then decided to visit Mamacitas for dinner. It was very busy with a wait time of 30 minutes. It was worth the wait. Seemed like a lot of big parties of people waiting so that might have been the reason. They serve free chips and salsa in the bar area. They have... More

The portions here are always large..they bring you butter with your chips and also have really good green sauce. If you save enough food they have cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory and fresh tortillas

Ready to go back! From the chips and "green sauce" to the nice menu, we had a great dinner. Attentive wait staff, kept drinks filled or refilled. Food was great, hit the spot after a long day at the water park.
