About MamaChita's

Our restaurant endearingly embraces the nickname of Tom’s mother, grandmother and great grandmother–Mamachita. Tom’s mother was the pioneer of Santo Tomas. She spent her life bringing Santo Tomas to life and dreamt of the day it would reach its true potential.

Come and enjoy a fusion of traditional Mexican, American (hamburger, etc), cowboy steak, brisket, traditional carne asada and amazingly fresh seafood.
