Reviews on here weren't that consistent but as we were staying in Belltown we went for a drink and ended up staying for dinner. Really glad we did. Loved it! Had the stuffed jalapenos for starter - very hot but very yummy! Nachos and guac...More

Enchiladas, my go-to test for a New Mexican restaurant. Here, the pinto beans were not cooked with the chili powder but it was added later and the flavor suffers greatly for it. The enchilada sauce was a simple tomato sauce with cayenne pepper sprinkled on...More

Several in the group wanted Mexican and we tried Mama's. We were not overly encouraged by hotel staff, and we had to admit they were correct. If you like real Mexican, this is not the place. Service was poor, but hte food prepared was worse.

$4 wine & a $5 huge plate of nachos was enough for me to want to come back and sample the other happy hour offerings. I would consider this place a "joint"-- but I like "joints" so for me--- time well spent!

Everything on my plate was not edible. Everything tasted the same and all of it was way too hot. I have never had an enchilada be so spicy. The coffee was horrible as well; it tasted like it had been made the previous day. When...More

The most frustrating thing of a recent 9 day west coast trip was that so many restaurants close at 8 or 9 pm. This one was open one night when we were starving, and Mexican sounded so good. Decent chips and salsa, but beyond that...More

Very enjoyable lunch at Mama's - food was very tasty - ask for the spicy salsa not on the menu - really good

This current mama's was opened after the original closed it's doors. The old Mama's was loved by many locals and travelers. They changed the food, the service and raised all the prices. Food is now bland and uninteresting, Margarita tastes like it was made with...More

While on vacation with a group of friends we stumbled on this place which turned out to be excellent. The food and service was outstanding and it didn't hurt that the drinks were flowing and reasonable. So I recommend that you stop by if you're...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

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!
