Mexican food seems to be all the craze where I come from. With Mexican restaurants, food trucks and even floating Mexican eateries, but none of them seem to peak my interests. However, on a recent weekend getaway to Seattle me and the family stumbled across Mama's Mexican Kitchen. At first glance it was like "POW", "Boom", "Bang" we got to eat their.
Mama's isn't the run of the mill Mexican restaurant we have in Victoria which is trying to cater to the "traditional" Mexican cuisine. No, Mama's is serving up authentic southern California style cuisine; and, they have been doing it since 1974. Any restaurant that has been in business since 1974 and is still busy on a Sunday evening has to be doing something right.
With a cool decor and eclectic group of employees, Mama's is simply a fun spot to grab a cerveza and a burrito and enjoy the night with family and friends.
As I said it was me and the family out for dinner and each of enjoyed the food. Oh, I forgot to mention that the servings are humungous! Not one of us finished our plate.
What we ate:
(3) Pop's ($2.25 each) - $7.5
(1) Elvis Presley Burrito Plate - $11.25
(1) Carne Asada special meal - $14.95
(1) Huevos Rancheros special meal - $12.50
Total Bill = $50.86
The only criticism for me was our server was not very friendly, but from all the other staff I had interactions with.... the rest of them seemed great.
