My friends and I all enjoyed our food without complaints (the entrée and margarita combo was a good deal!), but the service was quite bad - especially considering there's a 20% mandatory service fee. This was stated at the beginning of the meal, so luckily...More

We were a bit disappointed when we got there. It was really busy and our waitress wasn't very attentive. Drinks were ok. Then our pork nachos came and oh my goodness! They were very tasty. Once it slowed down our waitress was a little more...More

Stopped by for $5.00 Margaritas and tried their chorizo queso and chicken fajitas. Delicious and out the door for under $40 including tip. Nice Street-side outside tables and great service.

This was always our favorite Mexican place. Although, we knew it was under new ownership, we were predisposed to like it and stopped in for lunch. They do not have a lunch menu, so you must order from the dinner menu. Which would be fine...More

Found this restaurant, walking from the Space Needle en-route to Pike's Market. The chips were freshly made and still warm. My husband had the pork and chicken tacos, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I ordered the tortilla soup, which was very disappointing. It was basically, tomato...More

Let's start out with the positive. My campanion and I had the spicy jalapeno margaritas. The were flavorful and was perfectly infused with fresh jalapenos. The chips were fresh and their house salsa had a great smoky Chipotle flavor. The salsa verde was tangy and...More

We visited for dinner and drinks on a Saturday night. We had the complimentary chips, and the salsa was much better than anywhere we've eaten in our hometown. The burrito and quesadilla plates we ordered were great. The drinks are a little pricey, but they...More

Pros: The pozole was very good! Cons: Menu was stained with some kind of sauce on the back and had a piece of rice stuck to the front of it. There was a chunk of cooked onion on the table when we were seated, so...More

I can understand why some people might like the ambience, but I didn't enjoy it. Kitschy, 50s like oilcloth tablecloths, an Elvis room, very dark, little lighting. "Burrito bowl" presentation looked like mush piled on a huge chunk of iceberg lettuce. Flood was bland, with...More

Mamas is under new ownership. I don't know about private parties but I do know it doesn't even begin to hold a candle to the original Mama's. I'am spoiled because of the original place. I'am sure something else would work... More
Thank's Robert, This used to be such a favourite, of mine, and our family, sorry to hear it has changed so much, the old place gone, especially favourite was the elvis room. I will miss it, won't be going back.

It's the same physically. We enjoyed the food and the Margaritas were great! It is run by new people but no one was complaining. It was packed when we were there in June. Go one last time before it's torn down!
is it still open? June 12, 2016
