Nacho Mama's Restaurant Review

: As lively as a bowl of chiles, this tiny, multi-colored, light-festooned Mexican restaurant boasts snappy mariachi music, caricature murals, and cheap, casual eats. You’re treated to speedy service for such items as a Mama’s Mexican pizza and Coco Loco shrimp with homemade mango salsa, and practically as many nacho varieties as there are margarita flavors (20 last count). Next, tuck into a fish taco salad followed by fajitas, burritos, or such house specialties as carnitas Cubanas. There are burgers and wraps, too, and kids even have their own limited menu. Brunch items including huevos rancheros are available at lunch on weekends. As for something sweet, consider the homemade flan or sopapillas, or fried ice cream. You can request a private room, but not on weekends. Mama’s has an offspring in the Clarion Hotel at 3207 N. Boulevard, 804-359-9441.
