This has always been one of my favorite places in Richmond: the food is solid and the wait staff is great! My friends and I ordered the el pollo loco nachos, which are tasty and filling! Nacho Mama's features many types of margaritas.

We ate here for lunch and enjoyed a great meal. We had beef tacos and fish tacos. The salsa and guacamole were great and had a fresh taste. The chips were light and crunchy. Service was fast and friendly. We really enjoyed our lunch.

Had heard nice things about this place and therefore went for lunch with staff (total 5 of us). Service was very slow. Nachos were ok and took 15 mins to bring. Waited forever for "house made fuego sauce", tasted like bottled wing sauce with red...More
