delicious quesadillas, but do NOT get the fish taco!. i have been to nacho mama's countless times, and always enjoy it, mostly due to the hubcap margarita and quesdaillas that are always delicious, no matter which of the combinations you choose (FYI, the shrimp and black bean is the best choice). just do not get the fish taco. i decided to venture off of my normal quesadilla trail, and was thoroughly disappointed. the tuna was fishy and overcooked. however, i recommend nacho mama's to anyone who can appreciate some good food at a cheap price.
Best Quesadillas In Baltimore!!!. I've eaten at this place or got delivery once a week for the past ten years and the quesadillas are always the best! I wish they would bring back the blue cheese steak! FYI there usually a long wait on the weekends but you can get the same food delivered to your house.
Nacho best Mexican by a long shot. This place was far from authentic and not even good for imitation suburban Mexican food. Overpriced for the salty yet bland and "is that a quesadilla?" quality of the food, Nacho Mama's is probably a step down from the frozen stuff at Safeway. The fish taco came in a cardboard tortilla, the quesadilla was saltier than the forehead of the guy who made it, and a burrito for $14 is just plain shameful. Nachos were OK because you can't mess up nachos. I appreciated the Mexican imported beers, and the waitress was nice and smiley, even when she was ignoring us.
What happend to their wings?. Let me be be specific... this review is only about their wings... which used to be the best around. However, in the past couple of months, they went from great to inedible. The last 3 times I ordered them, they were so over cooked, they were dry, brittle and tasted horrible. In fact, I had to throw them away. I kept thinking it was a fluke... no such luck. They are off my list for good!
so NOT the best mexican ever!. Ok who ever wrote that last review does not get out much? Nacho Mama's is average at best. It's like a cheesy Mexican diner w/ a less than average wait staff. They have three types of beer on tap, that's it. And the wine list is bottom shelf offering a selection of wines that would cost you less than $10 dollars per bottle at the liquor store. The place just feels dirty and is so not impressive. However, what Mama's has going for them is that they are open late and located on the Square. It is a nice pit stop for a late night bite to eat after too much fun and drinking at the local bars.
The Absolute Best Mexican Food EVER!. Okay, seriously, the place looks very scary, but the food speaks for itself! For those of you who are penny pinchers you'll be quite happy with the large portions and reasonable prices! I will say, the wait can be very long at times. I think the longest I've waited is 2 hours, but I've honestly never ordered anything I haven't enjoyed. The crab dip is incredible! The crab nachos rock! And believe it or not, the meat loaf and smashed potatoes are the best I've ever had! Note: if you order an entree that lists the dish comes with vegetables, you'll automatically recieve snow peas. I'm not such a big fan of snow peas, but broccoli is available and it's delicious! You'll just need to ask for it! So my advice is get there prior to the dinner rush (before 6) in order to avoid parking issues and a long wait for a table, request broccoli vs. snow peas and get the crab dip as a starter!
Not mexican food in any way!. This restaurant has the worst mexican food I ever had-it makes taco bell look like authentic mexican. The hour+ wait is not worth it. Nothing is spicy and the rice and beans were real bad and had velveta syle cheese on them. STAY AWAY if you want real mexican food!
A cool place. Nacho Mama's is a really awesome place. Not only do you get a great sense of hometown love, you can write on the bath room walls! Go Chalkboard paint! Its very unique and the food is great. I love the Ten Leaf Salad and the Quesadillas. They are also very affordable.
User review by dfkelly. The absolute BEST carry out pizza in Baltimore - staff accepting tips for "beer money!"
Awesome. This place is the bomb-diggity. If you order the nachos, you will need a doggy bag. If your order fajitas, you will need a doggy bag. In fact, if you order nachos with the intention that they will only be an appetizer, you're screwed -- haha. They give you more bang for your buck. It's not a wide-open place, but they make up for it in grub and booze. If you're new to Baltimore you MUST at least try this place. If you like Mexican food you will not be disappointed.
