One of our favorite places to eat dinner! Being a chef I'm very picky where I spend my money to eat. Mamacita's can get my coint any time! I always go with the grilled chicken fajitas. Grilled with no oil. My spouse always order the beef enchiladas. A meal that will satisfy your stomach and make you happy.

Two friends and I went to lunch at Mamacita's and I was thrilled that it was as great as I remembered. It has been several years since I have been here. One of my friends wanted gluten free items and found a great variety to choose from. She settled on a ribeye steak. The other decided on fish. I could... More

Dinner for four and plenty of seating on a Sunday night after the Cowboy game, but the service was very slow and sketchy. Seated right away, but took quite a while to order drinks and even longer to order food. We had long periods of time that we never even saw our server. Finally ordered and food came out pretty...

We have eaten here twice. Enchiladas are very good. The main room looks like a Mexican village with little lights in the 2 story ceiling that look like stars. Staff is very nice.

The atmosphere at Mamacitas is probably one of the best in the San Antonio area. The service was very good and the salsas weren't bad but that's where it ends. Ordered enchiladas with charro beans and rice. All had no flavor. Some comino and chile powder could have added some flavor. I've been to many Mexican restaurants in San Antonio... More

The food was great and the service even better. It is laid back and luncheon specials were just that "very good and reasonablly priced". Each plate was enough for two people.

Service was great and food came out extra fast and really hot. Had a late lunch and dverything was good . The avacado cream sauce is fantastic. The red szlsz is mild so most people will like it. Not hot enough for me.
