My husband and I have driven by this place quit a few times and have always seen it packed. I have to believe this is only because of the location because we finally decided to try it and I just don’t have words for what we encountered. My husband proceeded to order enchiladas, he asked if he could get two beef and one cheese, again he was told no. We order. We ordered guacamole for appetizer, I swear it was total of one avocado mashed, no lime, no cilantro, no onions, no salt. When we got our food, my husband’s enchiladas were cold, no melted cheese, even the tortillas were cold. The fajitas were charred and the peppers and onions that accompanied them were raw, no sizzling what’s so ever. In fact, when I asked the waiter to make them medium rare, he said he would see what he could do. They don’t ask you how you want your meat done, that should’ve been our first and only clue. They don’t serve them with the usual toppings like sour cream and pico de gallo, you have to ask for that stuff. Again, besides the meat being way overdone, no seasoning whatsoever. I don’t think the chef, if you want to call them that believes in using salt and pepper. The ONLY decent thing we ate there was the chips and salsa. We definitely returned the enchiladas, my husband needed up eating some of the fajitas, and I went home to make me a salad.

Please don’t go to this establishment. Poor customer service. We waited an hour and a half for food, and we had an appetizer of quest first. Drinks tasted like water. They aren’t social distancing. Just a terrible experience over all. I would never go back.

Extremely rude. Would not offer one single item that could be made gluten free despite their website and many reviews saying they were excellent at this. We got up and left with tears after traveling an hour to get there. Luckily Garden House 2 doors down graciously took care of us and the server there received a $100 tip for doing so.

Extremely average food. This was highly rated so we thought it was going to be a great place. The food was lower than average. I do not know how this was rated 4.5

We picked Mama's because of the many good reviews. We were surprised it wasn't a better dining experience. Had to ask for chips & salsa which were served in tiny 2 oz containers (there were 4 of us). The cheese queso appetizer was also quite tiny (½ cup?) for 4 people. The food was "just okay". Maybe they've changed hands since the previous reviews?

Loved eating outside. Great food great service! Only thing I have to say negative is that I didn’t like the way they added 18% service charge and still tried to get a 20% tip on top of that. So be careful not to end up tipping 40%.

We were told that Mama’s Tacos was a perfect place for a group get together and the recommendation couldn’t have been more spot on! The food was amazing. The fajitas plate was truly spectacular and the steak was better than a Michelin rated restaurant. The drinks were both fun and tasty! I got 3 margaritas, a Long Island ice tee, 2 tequilas on the rocks, 3 shots of mezcal, a coke and rum, 4 cervezas and a few specialty cocktails and each drink was better than the next! The service was impeccable and it was almost as if they knew what I wanted before the words came out of my mouth. We had reservations at Mr Chow and Prime Italian the following two nights but canceled both so that we could go back to Mamas Tacos. If you’re in the area, it’s a place you can’t afford to miss!

Overrated. Food is average, there’s no chance this is one of the best restaurants in Miami; the burrito was not tasty at all. Service was ok.

Wonderful dinner! Street style tacos very flavorful and perfect meal size (no leftovers). Sat outside and service was good. Only issue for us was a delay in one of our party's meals (less than 5 minutes) but it was well worth the wait. Will definitely return on my next trip to South Beach.

Ordered guacamole which was delicious and fresh. Our margaritas were also tasty. We ordered and shared the triple meat fajitas and they were not seasoned well, and there were no onions with them. Very pricey dinner.

We dined early, so were one of two tables, yet were seated next to the other table, which seemed odd given pandemic. While not too close, we did find the cigarette smoke from the other table annoying. Speaking of which, we may have got a contact high from all of the marijuana fumes that were constantly coming from nearby. Not the restaurants fault. The service was quite good. The spicy maragaritas were awesome. The street corn was just OK, as was the queso fundido. The octopus tacos were overwhelmed by the sweet/spicy sauce. The fajitas were average at best, though I thought it was odd there were no onions in them. fajita portions were good, perhaps justifying the price. $26 seems like a lot for fajitas for one person, but it is south Beach. For that matter, the $15 tacos were a little steep too. For the price, I was hoping for a unique Mexican culinary experience.

Excelenye servicio. Carlos muy amable y mu atento. Somos mexicanos y disfrutamos mucho de la comida. Estaría excelente agregar salsas caseras (picantes y no picantes) al menú.
