We enjoyed the chips and salsa as we waited for our food. The salsa has good flavor and a nice kick. I got the chicken and bean tostada. It was really good. The only thing I was hoping for was that I wish they had tortas on their menu. But my tostada was great. I would recommend it. :)

Good basic Mexican food for a killer price! They have all your favs plus homemade chips and salsa. Be sure to go a little early to beat the lunch crowd. Be warned, it can be a little loud....lots of people enjoying good eats.

If you are in the mood for Mexican food, try this. I really enjoy their salsa, enchiladas with green sauce and agua de pina!

We went to Mama Chus last night. It is the best food for the best price. The service is great!! They are fast and very friendly. The four of us ate dinner for around 35.00. This is our family's favorite mexican restaurant.

And that is saying alot since mexican joints are a dime a dozen around here. Their rice is the best I've ever had in a mexican restaurant anywhere. Their refried beans are homemade. Their chips are hot and homemade. We love this place.

My wife & I love this place. The food is good, free chips & salsa, and the service is really quick - but it doesn't taste like fast food.

The food here is truly good Mexican, pretty authentic with ample servings. The chips and salsa are marvelous. The variety of sodas is quite broad, with Mexican bottled imports added to the mix. The problem here is noise. The place is packed, the floors are hard, and the whole place echoes. Every screech of a moving chair, each dropped utensil,... More
