Food was very good. Waiters were very attentive to the tables being served. Great margaritas. The only thing was that the space was small...but overall very good experience! Will come here again!

We have to eat gluten free and the menu has marked items and a lot of them. I am doubtful that a celiac person could eat here because it looked like a small kitchen and cross-contamination an issue probably. Manager/owner very engaged and concerned about our meals and service which is appreciated. A nice authentic Hell’s Kitchen ambiance.

I’m puzzled. $35 for a filet mignonette burrito. Really? And the margaritas are overpriced too.
I thought the fact that the restaurant was dirty, with a chipped water glass, and grime covered walls would mean that the food was worth it. My friend’s $28 burrito was far less tasty than what you’d get a couple blocks away for a third of the price at Chipotle. For $30, the steak fajita was a bargain. There are far better Mexican places in Hell’s Kitchen. Avoid Mamacita’s.

I regret going to this restaurant. Food was not good, I couldn't force myself to eat my meal. The drinks were average. Ambiance to me was not good, but I think that can also be personal preference. I don't understand the good reviews on google, must be the result of the owner walking around giving diners his business card and telling them to rate the restaurant 5 stars. For less money, you can get a much better meal and drinks on nearby 9th Avenue.

Cozy little gem if you're looking for fast service, great drinks and great food! We were in NYC for a quick weekend getaway. We chose Mamasita based on its great reviews and weren't disappointed. The service was impeccable. I had the chicken Enchilidas Suizas and my partner had a chicken and spinach burrito. Food was delicious. Definitely coming back on our next trip!

I came here last night for dinner with two friends and was very impressed! The frozen margaritas are huge and delicious and well priced. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time and we were surprised to see how generous the potion sizes were. My chicken fajita was delicious and the vegetables tasted fresh. Throughout our meal, the manager came around to check on us and seemed genuinely interested in how our experience was that night. At the end, we were surprised by a free dessert. Will definitely be returning!

A friend and I were in town and going to a show and made reservations for 6pm on a Friday night. It was packed but we were seated right away with our reservation! The ambiance was lively and fun and the margaritas were VERY potent. Just the way we like them. The staff was also very friendly and quick. I would go back here next visit to NYC.

Visited Mamasita's for the first time on Cinco de Mayo while visiting NYC. Our cycling team from Florida, Team Spongers, was in NYC for the TD Five Boro Bike Ride. We were in search of some authentic Mexican food and great margaritas. We sure found both at Mamasita's. This place is a gem. The food was delicious. The drinks were superb. Very clean place. The owner, P.K., was gracious, hospitable and made us feel welcome as if we had been regular customers. This is a very fun place. P.K.'s daughters do a great job making sure everything is right with your food and drinks. The ability to make a reservation was especially helpful. We highly recommend Mamasita's. We will definitely be back.

We went to Mamasita's before a show at Terminal 5 and it's a great choice. Place was busy on a Wednesday night so you know the food is good. We had a reservation and sat down right away despite the crowd. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Margarita's are also excellent. Definitely the best choice in the neighborhood.

Food was very tasty. Owner was right there talking with us. I love places that are not chains! We made a reservation but it was easy to get a table at 6 on a Saturday night, surprisingly. I thought the place would be large for some reason but it's tiny with about 15 - 20 tables. Very intimate. I think they make most of their money on drinks - we just had food and it was good.

We went on a Saturday night prior to a concert at Terminal 5. The food and drink were good albeit not fine-dining. It is a small place and seems to rely on a quick turn-over of tables. Staff is well-meaning and attentive but several times dropped hints about long lines of customers at the restaurant and at Terminal 5! It did not allow for the lingering meal that we had hoped for. Would probably have a different experience on a weekday night.
