My favorite is the pork tacos, so authentic. Great service, and Mama always makes you feel like family. I highly recommend Mexican Mama's for your next meal. Also, the Pozole is awesome, but it's a special occasionally.

I have been by the restaurant about three times. The wait staff has always be polite. The food is good. There is usually a lunch special. I was there during the noon hour. Most, if not all the tables had customers. The place seemed to be clean and had some decoration but not an overwhelming amount. My friends were happy... More

This place has good food but they will not give you much salsa. I have been there several times and for 1 person, they fill a 1 cup salsa dish with maybe 3 or 4 tbsp of salsa. I dont like to have to keep asking for salsa and annoying the waitress. This has happened everytime i have been there,... More

My favorite dish is the shrimp taco plate, which is only available Friday and Saturday, I think. Great food!

We found this spot from TA and Yelp and after a little reservation about location decided to try it out. We were very pleased. The salsa was different but very good and better than most places. I had a burrito supreme which hindsight is not my typical since it's a typical plate just rolled up burrito style but the innerds... More

The chips and salsa homemade, while waiting on my steak torta I ate most of the large basket of chips and all the salsa, ourstanding, when it mentions home cooked they mean it. The bread was soft and toasted to perfection. I'll for sure frequent this place again when in Batesville. LOVE IT.

On the way through town, I stopped here based on the other reviews from Trip Advisor. As described by others, it was great!!! The food quality was exceptional, service good, and they even discount your bill 10% if you pay with cash. The menu is not exceptionally large, but what I had, the enchilada plate, was very, very good. My... More

Slightly different Tex-Mex restaurant. Mama is always there and quality of food is excellent. Tamales are tasty but as with almost all Mexican restaurants there is too much masa for my taste. Have sampled many different items off menu and have been pleased with all.

I have eaten there numerous times. The salsa is different from most places and it varies in intensity on different days. I usually get the chicken fajitas but do try other things. Ella's Rice is great.
