Service and food are sh**...seriously. My wife and I went there due to their margarita mix we bought at a local package store (that was really good). Needless to say, we both wish we would’ve just went back to that package store and stayed home....More

A traveler that we meet recommended Fat Mamas to us so we tried it and loved it. Very casual, very inexpensive. I always look for good tamales and the tamale pie with 3 tamales and the home made chili over the top were to die...More

I had never had tamales before and wanted to try them whilst my wife was desperate for a marguerita so this place was a marriage made in heaven. I like the tamales and my wife enjoyed her drink so what more could you ask for?...More

Great atmosphere here. Everything off the menu has been amazing. And those margaritas...oh man...it doesn’t take much. Well worth the time and money to come enjoy the food they serve. Don’t cheat yourself out of this one. You’ll regret it.
