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

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!

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
