Stopped here for dinner with friends and were not disappointed. 9 of us were seated quickly and the staff was great. Very nice, engaging and friendly. TONS of Elvis stuff on the walls, it was actually pretty cool. All of us really enjoyed our food and the drinks were strong. Nothing outstanding, just a good solid place to get a... More

We visited this restaurant whilst we were holidaying in Seattle and we fancied a Mexican meal. The service was good, and the Margaritas were evidently quite alcoholic! The restaurant had the atmosphere of a cheap canteen. The starters were okay, but the main course left a lot to be desired. Their 'beef' tasted like reconstituted dried meat and was terrible!...

I don't understand how a place like this can operate. Hygene is nowhere to be found, let alone the foul smell of old (very old) urine, that smell gets more offensive as one aproaches the men's restroom.

I'll start the review by saying I'm from Texas, and am a HUGE fan of Mexican food... that being said, I'm not sure this is totally true Mexican food. To start off, chips and four different salsa were delivered to the table. It was very good, but they advertise 5 - make sure to ask for all of them. The... More

Had a great night here. The staff were really friendly and the atmosphere is informal and relaxed. There is a lot of choice on the menu and the margaritas were really great. Food was very tasty. Great place for a fun chilled night with partner, family or group of friends.

Like others I decided to try it although I had my doubts due to other reviews. Big mistake. Beans were right out of a can, No taste at all, Taco was dry, limited beer and wine selection and very limited menu. If you are over 25 the music will drive you crazy, loud with no redeeming features at all. From... More

We had a nice evening out on the patio. Service was good and So were the drinks. The food wasn't really Mexican food, but it was still pretty good.

First off, this isn't a review of Mama's Mexican Kitchen but Mama's Cantina. The original Mama's was awesome! But they decided to eventually mow down the building in lieu of a condo in the next while. It has now changed to Mama's Cantina with a minor reno until the time comes in the next couple of years. I remember when... More
