Columbia University students and Upper West Side residents appreciate Mama Mexico for its authentic, reasonably priced Mexican fare and festive atmosphere. Of course there are also big margaritas, chips and Guacamole, but this is far from your typical spot when it comes to the wonderfully fresh and tasty cuisine. The colorful dining room is often crowded, especially on weekends, and praise for this restaurant is only continuing to grow. Try the combination seafood platter or any number of quesadillas, salads, soups, enchiladas, or fajitas.
OH MY GOD!!! This is the worst place I've ever eaten in my life!! My wife and I ordered brunch. Hers came out long before mine and when mine came out (eggs benedict) the hollandaise sauce was baked into a dried mess. The servers were attentive but both dishes were just the worst food we've ever had.
Incredible experience. You should go try it out, and specially if anyone in the party is having a birthday. The food is delicious and the margaritas (endless flavors) the best ones in town! Pricing is fantastic for what you get. The one in 103rd is the best one.
Okay, yes...this place has great food, and drinks. I haven't had a plate I haven't liked. But the tables are so close together to each other, that unless you sit in the booths on the inside, you will always have staff bumping your chair as they pass while you eat...negotiating the exit of the person behind you is also tricky as there really is no space to push your chair back.
Ranting over, I will always go back for the food, it really is that good. But I'll try and go in the early evenings on weekdays, or 4pm on the weekends. Not as crowded.
Seating can take forever even with a reservation & the service is sometimes a little slow but that is due to the place being so popluar. The food is good but a little expensive. The place can be noisy but fun & the Mariachis are quite knowledgeable in Mexican songs from all periods.
This restaurant was incredible for its atmosphere, music, food and drinks. Anyone that enjoys music, great mexican food and wants to have a good time should go. The wait staff was professional and friendly.
What a fun and festive way to spend a Friday night! The food was wonderful, lots of choices of authentic Mexican food. The service was great, and the lively atmosphere was refreshing. The margaritas were tasty. I am telling all my friends they must go.
