My wife and I stopped bye for a quick lunch while in downtown Stillwater. First time here and not disappointed in food. We split Nacho Mama's nachos. Best we have ever eaten. Lots of cheese, tomatoes, peppers, etc. paired with a Pacifico beer and Margarita, it was plenty of food to share. Only complaint, it was a small dining area... More

Burrito the size of my head!!! Such a fun place with good food, huge portions, and a newly expanded front bar. Only wish you could get food in the bar... have fun!

We didn't plan on eating here but so glad we did! The waitress was great and the food was fabulous. The mojito was also great. We even ordered the fried ice cream for dessert. Definitely would go back to this place again!

Cute atmosphere good drinks. They just added on but need to invest in tables and chairs - Don't plan on staying long bar stools and chairs are VERY uncomfortable. Outdoor patio looks nice but we were there in winter so didn't sit outside.

I've dined here several times and while I do enjoy the flavorful food and colorful atmosphere, I enjoy their delicious margaritas even more. The service can be spotty, and unfortunately the prices are high for Stillwater, but the flip side is the portions are usually huge. There's a small outdoor seating area that's open if weather and staffing permits. Great... More

Service with a smile and very good food is a winning combo. Flavorful using good ingredients is the key here. The Margaritas are top notch to-what not to like!

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.

Thank GBtraveler999
