Don't be put off by the exterior. Everything is made from scratch and delicious. Paella had a smokey flavor and full of chicken, sausage and shrimp. pork chop with pineapple had a delicious red sauce and was served with a cheese enchilada, rice and homemade beans. for dessert we split a large slice of chocolate bacon cake with a champagne gelatin filling. moist and delicious. Service was very good and the owner who is from Guadalajara even came out and visited with us for awhile. We will be back.

Our Apple GPS was off by a mile but a bit more driving was worth the effort. "Oh my word...," is what will come out of your mouth when you drive up and you will be tempted to pass Mama Alma's by. Don't be fooled by the neighborhood or the look of the building; the treasure inside is worth exploring.
The waitress said, "everybody makes Mexican, try our specials." Our order was simple, "surprise us with two specials." I got an incredible chicken based soup, my wife, a very special burrito.
The food was really, really good. The service was personal.
This is a jewel of a restaurant!! Don't miss it.

Stopped here on our way home to Oklahoma. Don't let the old gas station exterior deter you from eating here....food was absolutely fantastic! All was authentic, homemade and freshly cooked. The tamales were HUGE! The tres leches cake was a delicious way to end the meal. Staff were very friendly. You get a lot of food for the price....very pleased.

Don't miss the specials. Great food that is unique and fresh. Hard working family serving homemade food. The gumbo, not something you expect at a Mexican restaurant, is as good as you will find anywhere.....even New Orleans!

What a great local place! It truly is a one-of-a-kind locally owned and operated venue with great food and service. it's a place you can take your family for a relaxing meal or just a beer and snacks with friends. Alma, Horation, and their children and "extended family" will make you feel welcome and they WILL feed you well! Enjoy!
