“Good happy hour prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Enjoyed wine and beer during happy hour, also had good prices on food, wings, nachos etc. Raining that day, so had to eat inside, which was disappointing as they had a lovely patio.

Thanks so much! Sorry you missed out on the patio vibe. It is wonderful out there when the weather permits both summer and winter. Safe travels!

“Gomez's Fun on the Patio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Gomez's is a very good Mexican restaurant that serves great tacos and cool margaritas. The patio offers a good view of Mammoth Lakes Village and has things for young kids to play with and they also offered etch-a-sketches for the older kids... Our wait staff was excellent and offer suggestions on what to eat and drink. I will go back and eat there again on my next trip to Mammoth Lakes.

“Ribs are amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

You usually do not think of ribs at a Mexican restaurant but time to think differently. Their as use is great. A sweet chipotle sauce. Make sure you get extra napkins.

So glad you liked the ribs! We make that sauce using a few secret ingredients including a very smoky distilled Mezcal... of course, that's just the Gomez way. Thanks for the shout. Hope you have a wonderful summer. Salud!

“Maybe just unlucky”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We ate at Gomez on Tuesday 22 July 2014, the previous reviews suggest that this place is fantastic/good/ok.

All I can say is the service and food was awful, staff running about like headless chickens, there didn't appear to be any system or management. When the food arrived it was stone cold, we ordered fajitas which in my experience are normally sizzling (as described on menu) not on this occasion, my son ordered chicken burrito and it tasted an looked like fish, and the quesadillas where rubber like.

We waited ages for more drinks to arrive only for them to be wrong when they did arrive and then for the server to tell us that that was what we ordered, she reluctantly changed the drinks for us and said we wouldn't be charged for the wrong drinks, but when we asked for our check we were being charged for the wrong drinks also, they did remove these once it was pointed out to the staff.

Also can I say we sat for around 45 minutes with our plates full of food in front of us waiting for them to be removed, which has they weren't until we eventually left, even though various members of staff asked it we were finished with the food and we're sitting around the tables near to us chatting to each other.

All I can say is don't waste your time or money there are plenty other restaurants.

Well we are so sorry. Just know we read every review and discuss them with Management. We would love to have a second chance as obviously there are many positive experiences as well, but we understand completely that we let you down. If by chance you would consider us in the future, our General Manager would be happy to meet you and host your visit. Ana Molina can be reached at: ana@gomezs.com. If not, thanks again for visiting Mammoth and we wish you many safe returns.

“Not Mexican enough for me!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

TRENDY BUT NOT MEXICAN ENOUGH! Pretty spendy and just decent food! But being in the village at base of the gondola, I guess that figures...? Laurie the afternoon bartender was the only highlight!

Thanks so much for stopping by. No doubt about half our menu are traditional family recipes (but "authentic Mexican" can vary a lot from one part of the country to another) the other is perhaps best categorized as Latin Fusion. We greatly appreciate your stopping by our place and Mammoth / Yosemite. Safe travels!
