Just like it says on the back of the servers shirts! We thought this would just be a debt lunch, but we were wrong - it was great! Very great serving staff. Tacos were terrific, particularly the Korean BBQ. Great atmosphere eating inside or on the porch. Red salsa was outstanding! Can be a little hard to find, though. But... More

Stopped in on Saturday for lunch. I had the Korean BBQ, sloppy Jose and one with shrimp. My wife had the club taco with corn. Great place to eat but the only negative is the parking. Publix is just down the street for additional parking.

Taco Mama! The Peruvian chicken was unlike anything we've every tasted! The margaritas are a generous size, and I loved the steak house taco. This isn't traditional Mexican, more hipster/chef inspired. We will definitely be back.

We came during a dinner rush and had about a 30 minute wait before we were seated, but once we were in, everything moved very quickly. No complaints from anyone on the food, either! Turnip greens are especially good, even if it does sound a little weird for this kind of place

not your basic chips and salsa place but an interesting stop none the less. Large variety of tacos and you get the chance to try different ones at one sitting. A couple in our group split the nachos and loved them. Wasn't sure about the tacos since the menu was loaded. I had the Royale and the California Club and... More

My wife and I had a late lunch at Taco Mamacita Sunday. We both ordered the "go to" soup - Chicken Tortilla and it was as always excellent!! Just enough to get us to dinner without getting hungry in between. Great service. Good cold draft beer and they'll see us again very soon.

The Sunday evening I was there, the atmosphere was informal and buzzing with conversation and music barely heard, mostly college aged kids and young adults. What I had was structured like a taco, tortilla beneath meat, vegetables, and sauce. However the combinations are original and rely upon only some foods from mexican cuisine, many are not. I had two tacos... More

I got the memphis taco and Korean beef and they were outstanding. We called ahead and we're seated very quickly. Definitely a must from know on.

My Friday and and I stopped in for a light lunch and chose the sloppy nachos. It was delicious. We would definitely order it again.

Not your typical Mexican taco place. That's the point! The ambience is amazing. They have indoor as well as outdoor seating. I love the eclectic choice of tacos, but my go to choice is the vegetarian jerk taco. I also always have to get the tortilla soup - vegan version. It's amazing! Fresh and spicy. And you definitely need to... More
