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.

Great authentic place. Warm, friendly, good food. I split an order of fajitas with my boyfriend and they gave us an extra rice and beans set up for free. And a free dessert! Very nice. Just need to upgrade the tequila list!

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.

A warning, I am very critical of Mexican food. It is my favorite food, and I have had authentic, excellent Mexican food in the past.
The food was decent, but it lacked flavor. There are certain spices and flavors expected in Mexican food, and it just was not there. However, the food was fresh, and they do not use animal fats or lards to prepare. As far as the margaritas, they are mediocre at best. They did not contain a lot of alcohol. Not that you need to get blasted off of one drink, but the taste and kick of taquila is vital to a margarita. Very small restaurant, and the bar is right next to the dining room so it is extremely loud. I am not even going to get into the waitress, I own a business, and I realize how hard it is to hire really good people. Tip is included. But after my credit card was run, the itemized receipt was not given back so if you didn't read it on the bottom of the menu you would tip twice. PRETTY SLICK!
Overall, if you don't care about the Mexican food you eat, or if your experience with Mexican food is Taco Bell, than you will really enjoy this place.

We were given the standard lunch menu during brunch time. We didn't realize there was even a brunch menu. The food was severely overpriced for both the quality and quantity of food we ate. Better off at an upscale Mexican restaurant with those prices...

Food was super quick- almost too quick to think it was “made to order”. It was average Mexican but ingredients all seemed fresh. It was very busy when we went and they do a good job of turning over the tables effectively.

HORRIBLE!!!! Margaritas looked nothing like the pictures on the site and they taste horrible. I had reservations for 6 and we ask for some napkins and we received two napkins. We then asked could we get more we were handed three more. We ended up just tearing them in half. I had a steak quesadilla which was really tiny for 18 bucks. Our bill came up to 224 with Gratuity included. We put 75 in cash and the cards should be charged 37.25 each. Instead we all got charged 56 dollars like we didn’t give cash. So now I’m 93 dollars in the hole until I can get my 56 back! NEVER AGAIN!! Please don’t waste your time!
