Not Mexican? No. Not Mexican. Despite the name. There... now that myth is debunked, what is it? From our take, it is a somewhat Italian-inspired American cafe. It is also QUITE GOOD. You will find basic menu choices, done very well in a warm, friendly, clean environment. There is a reason Mamacita's is consistently at the top of the ranking... More

We ate here a year ago, based on reviews. At that time the food was good, there was variety to the menu, they were busy, and we were satisfied if not impressed. This year, August 11, we stopped again. At 7:30, the place was almost empty and yet there were crumbs and napkins on and under several tables. The wait... More

Like other reviewers have noted, the prices are a bit high for what you get. A $4.50 house salad that is not much more than grocery store spring mix thrown on a plate was disappointing. The variety on the menu will satisfy large groups. The service had strengths and weaknesses. The staff were not around to seat me or attend... More

Hands down this is the best place to eat in La Grande. The menu has enough variety that everyone can find something, which is why it is always busy. I have eaten there several times since moving here in October. There burgers are great, the teriyaki chicken sandwhich is very good, the seasoned fries are great. The prices are a... More

Great food and fair service. The place is a bit noise for comfortable eating. Outside area is great place to retreat and live music plays next to area at times. large group seating is downstairs. Bar is downstairs

We are traveling northwest from Phoenix. We have eaten at hundreds of restaurants in all parts of the U.S. In the last several years while traveling. The food here is pretty good, the service is friendly but the prices are a little high considering this is basically a diner. Plus it was a little warm inside which is not conducive... More

I would rate Mamacita's higher than a three as the food was very good -- once we got it that is. I don't know whether we just got there at a bad time, or if there was something else going on. The restaurant did not appear to be especially busy as all the tables were not full, but we had... More

This is a great place to go that is fun and relaxed. The staff are exceptionally friendly and prompt. When they are busy, which is usually every weekend, plan to make reservations or before 5:00. nice selection on the menu, but some items may be a little overpriced. However, you won't be disappointed with the quality and taste.

One minute before closing, Friday night, NO STAFF WANTS TO SEE THAT! But after some reassurances from the staff, we agreed to be seated...and to order whatever was the fastest. They said, chicken, salad, or pastas. One of us ordered the Chicken Carbonara and I ordered one other...I have no idea what it was called. It had chicken, red peppers,... More

We loved every dish we tried here, and appreciate the fresh, quality ingredients and delicious meals. There was so much variety, once we discovered this gem we didn't bother going any place else for the week we were in town. The servers were all pleasant and friendly as well. We recommended it for our whole group, and were even more... More
