I met with a group of friends recently at Mamaveca's. The staff was quite accommodating when we entered. Since, we weren't positive on how many would attend, they placed us in an area, where additional table and chairs could be added. After a few adds and menu time, all placed orders with the wait person. it only took a few... More

This family owned restaurant is superb. Not that fancy of decor but the food and service makes up the difference and then some. Wife had Peruvian dish and absolutely wouldn't quit talking about how good it was. I had traditional Mexican plate and couldn't have asked for anything better. Salsa is perfect. Has a slight smoke or roasted chili flavor,... More

We took our daughters and their husbands here for lunch after church on a busy Sunday and had excellent service and food. Three of us had mexican selections and three peruvian and all were fantastic. Once again I had the chicken enchiladas with green tomatillo sauce and it was excellent! The complimentary chips and salsa were delicious too. Highly recommend... More

This was a great find years ago and we've been coming ever since. We absolutely love the Peruvian food here. Chips are thin and crisp, salsa perfect and great cheese sauce. I highly recommend the De Pollo Chaufus which is Peruvian style Chinese rice. Big bowl and very pleasing and filling. Friendly and quick service and friendly owners.

This is hands down the best, most authentic Mexican food in Norman. Warm homemade tortillas, queso, and salsa come to the table before your drinks arrive. Their dinners plates are filling and a good price. I've personally had the fajita chicken enchiladas (made with flour tortillas-yum!) and they are so so good! I've been twice now, and both of my...

My boyfriend and I have since eaten here twice. Both times, he got the fish tacos and I got the avocado enchiladas which I thought were a pretty unique offering. I was pleased with the selection because there were some vegetarian options. The avocado enchiladas were delicious and there was plenty of food served, not to mention the endless chips... More

We were introduced to Mamaveca's by friends. The atmosphere is good and the food is always enjoyable. We love the combo fajitas and get the single order and share them. We still take food home even after sharing. I love that they let you share without charging you an extra set-up fee like many Mexican restaurants.
