About Permanently Closed - Mamacita
This restaurant is permanently closed. At Mamacita we pride ourselves on creating a community atmosphere while serving culinary creations and libations utilizing the freshest of ingredients. At the core of our offering is a homage to original Mexican dishes made from scratch each day. House-made tamales, tortillas and sauces create a foundation for our ever seasonal menu. While unique and carefully crafted ceviches, enchiladas and tacos have become house staples. We also take our tequila and beverages very seriously as we search out hand crafted and boutique distilleries to round out our over 60 in house tequilas and mescals.

Mamacita - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Dined here with a group of 7 for my dad's birthday. We ordered just about every craft cocktail on their menu and loved all of them; special shout out to the cucumber gimlet and the jamaica sour. The food was excellent. We visit Padrecito a lot and there are some similarities, but Mamacita's menu offers great variety. We tried a bunch of different things across the menu. My personal favorites: Jicama salad, Rancheras, Carnitas tacos and the esquite.
Far better than expected! Our server was excellent which helped too. My friend order the chicken tortilla soup which was delicious although a bit too spicy for me. Wish they mentioned that on the menu. The Hickam a salad it was fantastic. Different than we thought it would be – like a chopped salad with delicious dressing. The shrimp tacos were amazing – two big shrimp on each taco with wonderful fruity salsa. Cocktails were fantastic. Didn't know how good this place was and we will definitely return !
Upbeat enviroment and young scene. Food was fresh and tastfully prepared. The Margarita pricey and not up to speed what we expected for this tag. We had table in far back right by kitchen entrance, not ideal if you want to have a romantic conversation.
Waitress was little snippy as we did not order more than drinks and appetizers, still a $60 tab.
I traveled a long way for this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary, and it was disappointing. I had written on OpenTable that it was a special event, and they forgot. The manager, Luther, argued with me and blamed me for not telling them! The tables are so close to each other, that the couple to our right asked to be moved. The couple to our left put $3 on the table and left after being served water. I measured the distance; it's one full hand distance from table to table. We even felt that they were more interested in patrons leaving quickly to make room for other customers! It was awful!
I apologized to my wife for the restaurant. I had four other restaurants to pick from, and I chose poorly. Both of us left portions of food on our plates. I'm of Hispanic heritage and there are many taco trucks that do a much better job than Mamacita. The restaurant ended up putting a family with unruly kids next to us, and they kept drawing on the table with crayons and sneezing. I have kids and I'm very patient and I understand, but this restaurant represents itself as a higher caliber establishment for elegant dining. This is not a 4 or 5-star restaurant. That is deceiving.
We were a group of 4 from out of town in San Fran for a Conference. Mamacita was recommended by a local. We loved it! We happen to be there during happy hour and let me tell you, best happy hour EVER! Full portions for a fraction of the price. The food was excellent, we share a punch of taco's and one was even better than the next. I can't pick a favorite because they were all outstanding!
They have a great happy hour (until 6PM) menu with discounted food items. We like to order the crunchy chicken tacos (normally $17 for 3 tacos; happy hour price $9 for 3 tacos!), but everything we've tried here is great, including the Neiman Ranch beef short rib enchiladas! Some of their items are gluten free (such as the aforementioned chicken tacos).
We had a reservation but showed up late -- nonetheless, on a busy night, they fit us in at the communal within 15 minutes. Our server (blonde, short), was extremely personable and gave us a great recommendation for my friend's drink. She was always nearby but never hovered too close.
The food itself was very good! Chilaquiles were excellent, and the tacos as well. I would go back here.
