stopped by after playing at an old timey jam at Jack of the Wood on Wednesday night. Even at 9:30PM they were very welcoming, made us some HUGE burritos, and were very polite about asking us if there was anything else we needed before putting away sauces, etc. quite filling and delicious.

My favorite part of Mamacita's is the location next to Wicked Weed. There's often no waiting on a Saturday afternoon which is great - the cafeteria style makes for fast service. Good house made salsas and nice choice of meats and toppings on your tacos, burritos or quesadillas. Will return again!

We loved it, we weren't looking for anything fancy but wanted good food and that's what we got. I really enjoyed the burrito and my fiance got the quesadilla both were great.

Had dinner in here and by chance hit Taco Tuesday. The place is a little 'ordinary looking' but was great. The crowd was quite mixed and eclectic but there was a live music event a block away starting later that evening that may have brought the slightly alternative crowd - as alternative as you can get in Asheville anyway!!

Delicious "made your way" Mexican. Had the 2 taco meal and a side of fried plantains and it was extremely filling! Very good! I can see why they were voted Number 1 for tacos and burritos in Asheville!

Mamacita's is a popular, locally owned spot in downtown Asheville specializing in tacos, burritos and quesadillas. They can be quite busy during peak hours but the friendly staff (order at the counter) are fast so the wait isn't bad. The food is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Compared to a chain like Moe's SW Grill i'd say the portions are... More

We had been gallavanting through downtown with our kids and got hungry. Did a quick google search of "Mexican cheap eats Asheville" and Mamacitas popped up. We were not disappointed! Like a Mexican Subway, you get to customize your order. It was simple, but delicious. The ingredients were fresh and flavorful. Would definitely eat here again.

When I looked over the menu for Mamacita's, I didn't really expect that I would order at a counter, sort of like Chipotle. I expected the typical sit-down and order Mexican restaurant. It really didn't matter to us after all. The food was quickly prepared right in front of us and was very good. The salsa bar is worth trying... More

This place reminds me of Moe's or Chipolte. But better. The ingredients are fresh. The avocado was cut and spooned out in front of us. We were the first people in just after 11am and by the time we left the place was full. I had the chorizo verde with black beans and rice and it was delish. The pico... More

We wanted to go to the Wicked Weed, but there was an hour wait, so we went next door to Mamacita's and were glad we did. The chips, salsa, guacamole, queso dip, and shrimp burritos were all really good.
