My wife and I ate their Saturday. The service is always great. A person always greets you at the door. Our tea glasses were always full. They have great Free sauces for your chips. The shrimp enchiladas were perfect. To top off the meal, I...More

My hotel recommended Mamacita's for Mexican Food and I was not disappointed. Saturday night and very busy. I was seated promptly. The chips and salsa also had a tasty green sauce offered. They even had a shrimp pasta!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in San Marcos. Mamacita's is owned by an Iranian who has put his own twist on traditional Mexican dishes, and has made them even better. I especially like the sea food dishes. You're be hard pressed to find...More
