This is an awesome family owned restaurant with delicious food and margaritas. The food is satisfying and doesn’t feel heavy on your stomach. Very attentive and friendly service as an added bonus.

We’re from Southern California, where Mexican food restaurants are very popular and competitive. There simply was no comparison between our meals at Mamasitas and the quality, flavor, and value we are accustomed to in SoCal. Based on the reviews, we had high hopes. Regardless, the staff was exceptionally kind and very responsive to our requests. At one point, the owner graciously attended to a homeless man who walked into the bar area. Very nice!

The owner is absolutely wonderful. We got in late, spilled a drink and he could not have been more gracious. Good conversation, great history (family-owned). Will definitely be back.

I don't understand the reviews, this place must be frequented by transpants from Wisconsin who've never tried Mexican food. By far the worst version of Tex-Mex I've had in NYC in 20+ years. Completely tasteless and bland, zero flavor, weird texture. Margarita tasted like watered-down tequila, so they don't even know the basic proportions of the cocktail. Small dingy space resembling a run-down dive bar. The place was dead so 8 different people came up to the table every 2 minutes for no reason, which was extremely annoying and made the experience unbearable. The owner was particularly obtuse, practically stalking our table and begging for compliments - ended up praising himself when we did not bite. Overpriced too, even for covid times. Do yourself a favor and find some other place to eat.

The margarita menu is absolutely everything with so many choices and your choice of tequila. The food was delicious I ordered the combo, taco, and enchiladas. The guac and salsa were so fresh I highly recommend it! The restaurant practiced social distancing and the staff was super friendly!

Gave the table behind us a free round of drinks just for coming in. We heard her do this so would have been nice if we had same offer. Also online res said "outdoor seating only" but there were people inside & we would have preferred to be indoors. Waitress was super nice & food was good but drinks pricer than necessary.

we were instructed from arrival that we had 1.5 hrs limit on seating, which was fine with us and we were meeting that time allotment yet felt pressured to leave by owner/manager who was asking us to move to another table before our 1.5 hrs was up

Fabulous and healthy comfort food choices and great drinks on an extensive menu in a family operated, great service and warm atmosphere restaurant. Not fancy or expensive, but real and satisfying. Lots of loyal customers, for good reasons. We enjoyed excellent frozen marguerites, guacamole, salsa and chips, tacos, chili rellenos, and tres leches. Looking forward to many returns! Superb experience!

What an unassuming gem. Four of us came here on a slow Tuesday night; we were one of 3 tables. Good for us. We had the best waiter around, the owner! We got to know all about he and his wife Bina, and the family business. The drinks were potent, and the food was wonderful, especially the refried beans. You can't go wrong at this place. Go!

Worst margarita I have ever tasted. They must use the cheap mix to make it. The food wasn’t bad but I will never return because the drinks were awful!

A hidden gem in Hell’s Kitchen. Amazing food, strong and delicious margaritas, wonderful service. I would highly recommend to friends and family. Thank you to the staff who provided a piece of tres leches cake on the house! A wonderful ending to our perfect date night.

Food quality just wasn’t there. Chicken so dry it wasn’t edible. Appetizers came at the same time as entree. Told the Mgr and server but they just said “sorry”.

We were a party of 7. We all enjoyed our meal and thought it was food value. Large servings. Many Margarita choices - I had the frozen mango and enjoyed it!
Great service. Owner came to our table during dinner to make sure everything was good.
Would recommend for casual Mexican lunch or dinner.

DISHONEST WAITRESS! While we enjoyed the food at Mamasita, we will NOT return. Our waitress tacked on an erroneous $24 charge to our credit card charge - after I reviewed the check. This was no mistake! She didn't return the check to us with the credit card charge - until I requested it. When I pointed out the "error" she casually said "Oh, that was for six shots for that table over there." Who doesn't return the check for review with the credit card charge?

My first visit. Nice neighborhood restaurant away from the crush of tourists. Very attentive service. Carnitas, margaritas and guacamole were excellent. Massive menu selection and they will do anything you ask. Looking for Mexican / Latin fare? This is a very good choice.

Small lively place with a lot to look at in the Mexican tradition. The menu rivals the size of a diner which means there’s so much to choose from. So far we’ve been twice and both times the food was really great. Had the Cha Cha Manga which was a surprise. Although my friend’s mole sauce was too much on the chocolate side. Best part was the friendly service. Even the owner would stop by and make sure we were okay. Would definitely go back again.
