Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The only downside is that we weren't able to try everything in one visit. We ordered the sexy tacos and the classic tacos with chicken. Both very flavorful but we liked the sexy tacos more. EVERYTHING that was carried by us to other tables looked and smelled amazing. Very good portions for... More

Sat night date thru Stillwater...opted to sit on the tractor seat, wheel rimmed stool at the tiny bar in the quaint front area of the establishment as the dining room is very compact and the alleyway outdoor patio lacked ambience and was getting cool out during sundown. Marg was decent and the Nacho's were good esp when meat was mixed... More

Nacho Mama's offers probably the best Mexican food in Stillwater. The inside is adorned with rich, vibrant colors reminiscent of Mexico. Bold reds, rich blues and brilliant yellows wouldn't seem to fit into East-Central Minnesota but they make it work. They offer a patio during the nice weather season which can be quite pleasant. Inside, the restaurant is a little... More

Generous portions on all our orders. Great nachos, guacamole and shrimp tacos. Vodka margaritas were the best - tasted homemade and fresh. Drinks though were overpriced for the size glass. Cute place but cozy and rather loud with close tables. Service was excellent - checking on us throughout the meal.

I've been to Nacho Mamas a half-dozen times (usually with friends who do love this place). I don't love their beans and rice - they seem heavy and more 'tex mex' than authentic mexican. The smothered burrito is very tasty and there are huge portions, but even still, it's a bit overpriced when you take into consideration you have to... More

Nice outdoor seating area, though a little cramped. No complaints though, we loved the feel. Great nachos and margs.

They need to take the window coverings off the windows so you can people watch otherwise good food. Never a problem getting service with the new opening

This place has great food! We have tried many dishes, and have never left disappointed, or hungry! Small space, but the flavorful food, and great wait staff make up for any wait you may have to be seated. Would highly recommend.

We had a group of five on the patio and the service was outstanding - thanks Cody! The funky shrimp tacos were delicious, the appetizers were terrific, and the chimichanga tasted great. The food was wonderful, the service first rate, the Ultimate Margarita was yummy, it was a home run night at Nacho Mamas. I've been here many times, but... More

Newly renovated front (bar) area has a great view of the street. Happy Hour Specials 3 - 6. We did not partake in the specials. The inside has a tight dining area and there is a patio out back. The food is spicy. The homemade guacamole and salsa was delicious. The corn on the cob was fresh and yummy. The... More
