It looked like a popular place as the building is large and lots of cars in the parking lot. The green salsa had food coloring in it to make it too green and tasted different than I am accustomed to eating.
Fortunately, the restaurant of the same name in Houston is way better!

For consistently good Mexican/Southwestern food there is no better place in Kerrville, Fredericksburg and SA. I been coming here monthly since 2002 and I have never been disappointed. You can find more authentic Mexican food in the hill country but you won't find a better value or service. The buildings are large and historic in architecture - there almost never a long wait for seating or service.

I've eaten at Mamacitas since it opened - about 30 years ago. I often stop in when visiting the Hill Country. Over the years I've seen the building and decor improve as they've grown.
We ordered fajitas for two people this trip and found the food to be great Tex-Mex. Sizzling iron platters of meat, onions and peppers were delivered to our table. The sides were no problem to double guacamole and substitute charro for re fried beans. The decor feels like a high end Mexican resort. I like the water flowing at the front. Very enjoyable Mexican restaurant!

We enjoyed the food, the tortillas, the salsa and the very good green sauce! The margaritas were awesome.

There is lots of excellent Mexican food in Kerrville, far better than Mamacita's. But the food is decent and reliable, and the restaurant's deserved popularity comes from being one of the few late-night spots in town, and having a good bar, good service, good value, and a nice atmosphere, especially outdoors on their patio, which includes a pleasant fountain and garden. This is a prime place to go with a group of friends for a fun evening, or take a very large group and still get top-notch service.

With a large menu, not every dish is made equally well. However, it's hard to go wrong with their salads or fajitas, and they serve plenty of warm tortillas. A few dishes don't really work well, like the fried avocado or battered portobello, which are just overly greasy, or the carnitas, which came out dry and tasting almost pre-made and reheated. Overall, it's the kind of place you go to socialize, but not for takeout when better Mexican food for better value is available elsewhere.
