I must come here to eat every trip home. It is a place where we locals like to hang out on the patio and have a margarita or two. The gringo pie is always my pick on the menu!

We've eaten at Fat Mama's several times now and always enjoy it! Our favorite is the Gringo Plate with 3 tamales covered in chili with onions, cheese, and jalepenos. The margaritas are awesome as well!

We were recommended this restaurant for it's cocktails, however we went at lunch time and had tamales. They were excellent and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Not expensive and a great place to try something different.
