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.

We've eaten at this restaurant many times over the years after a day at Schlitterbahn, and it is always good quality food and good service. We had the fajitas. There was an error in our order, but it was fixed immediately and was no big deal. The beef fajitas were a little chewy, but tasted great so no complaints. My... More

Good food, a little pricey, and a really fun place with really neat décor. The drinks are OK, but need a little help

I'm going to echo other sentiments here, HOW DOES THIS PLACE HAVE A 4 STAR RATING? It was mediocre, at best. Service was good, I'll give them that. Margaritas were watery, not tasty at all. Salsa was pretty good, as was there green sauce. But where the whole train goes off the tracks is the entree. Crispy tacos - flavorless,... More

Everyone I was with raved about the food - especially the "guacamole" and the margaritas! Since I figured they knew best, I went in with high expectations, and was sorely disappointed. The guacamole was really more a sauce than a hearty dip. The drinks were pretty average. The menu was comical in it's self description as a "health conscious" restaurant,... More

This is a Mexican restaurant popular with the locals (always a crowd after church on Sunday). Nice variety of foods on the menu. A little pricier than some other area restaurants, but quality of food is excellent.
