“Fast service, reasonable prices”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Good value, fajitas and fajita salad are my favorites, but all items on the menu have been enjoyed by those I've dined with at Mamasita's.

“Service with a smile”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Great service, warm chips and cold salsa (perfect!), and outstanding gold margaritas. The food was pretty much what you would expect but the service will keep you coming back for more.

“Plain Vanilla Mexican”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

On the positive side, this restaurant is open Sunday evening and the service is very good. The problems are the food and drinks. This is unimaginative Mexican, centered around tacos, tamales, etc., and none of these stands out in any respect. The drinks are atrocious. I ordered a frozen margarita that seemed like liquid soap gone bad. No pina colada. This restaurant is leaving a lot of money behind by not stepping up its liquor offering. Go for the bottled beer.

“Best Mexican Food in Edenton”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

I know it is the only place, but still - it is good food served hot and quickly. Have eaten here multiple times over the last 3 years and have never been disappointed in the food and we order different items each time. Have only been dispointed once and that was in a draft beer I had in 2012 that tasted awful. Did complain but only got an apology for it; haven't ordered another draft beer since. Today's lunch was outstanding, the place got really busy after we arrived, but there was no slow down in the service. We both ordered off the lunch menu and both finished our meals but were too full to order our usual shared flan. They have redecorated the inside so there are no longer "tacky" signs all over the place. They also have a daily drink special as well as a single lunch and dinner special. It goes without saying, my bride and I will be back.

“The better place”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

A bit corny ambience, but the better value in town. The fajitas are fabulous, the service is friendly and quick, the value is excellent. The place to go for a reasonably priced, good meal.
