Indisputably the best independent Tex-Mex fast-food joint in St. Louis, Nachomama's gives Rock Hill a much-needed infusion of flavor and color. Dig the tricolor tortilla chips served in flower pots and the Bud Dry mural on the ceiling. The kitchen turns out topnotch burritos, quesadillas and nachos, and the beans rise well above the status of simple side dish. Though you can order hard-shell tacos, the soft variety is excellent. The guacamole ranks among the area's best, and the salsas (especially the hottest version) are mighty tasty. There's no bar, per se, but margaritas and bottled beer are available.
Whether you observe Drinko de Mayo, or its less quippy counterpart Cinco de Drinko, we all unite this Sunday, May 5, to drink fishbowl margaritas in the streets of St. Louis. It might not be a real na... More »

They have crazy yummy nachos - chips with melted shredded cheese across the top and fresh salsa. The guacamole is very fresh and comes in its hollowed out avocado for a nice touch. They even have a drive-thru. I love the guy that always waits on us there.
The myriad charms of Rock Hill Tex-Mex establishment Nachomama's are not hard to understand. It's easy to fall under the spell of the joint's unassuming but spot-on ambiance: the vintage country & Western on the radio, the beer- and soda-logo tabletops, the rainbow of fruity Jarritos sodas. And that's before you even get to the menu -- the burritos, quesadillas and especially the fajita tacos are all justly adored. It may not be the first item that comes to mind when you're in a...

Let's get something straight: Movies make for crappy first dates. Sure, they can take the pressure off by providing conversation fodder -- but only after you've sat side by side for two hours, silently, in the dark. A restaurant first date is a far superior way to get to know someone -- plus, the diet's not limited to overpriced popcorn, soda and Raisinets. (Not that there's anything wrong with Raisinets.) Enter Nachomama's. It's a little off the beaten track, so you'll score... More »
The great Western philosopher Marshall Mathers once declared, "My salsa makes all the pretty girls want to dance." With all due respect to Señor Shady, the most delicious, most danceworthy salsa can be found at only one place: Nachomama's. This colorful Rock Hill eatery offers some of the best Tex-Mex food in the area, and the freshly made salsa -- available in mild, medium and farewell-to-taste-buds -- is the perfect complement to absolutely anything on the menu. Unlike the... More »
The fish burrito may not be the institution that the hamburger is, but it should be. Newbies and devotees alike would do well to check out Nachomama's take on this fine conveyance of eating pleasure. Theirs is a near-perfect combination of cool, crisp cabbage, grilled onions, lightly battered cod, tangy sauce and a smidge of rice and cheese. Available in small and large ($5.99 and $6.99, respectively), they'll make you forget about burgers for at least a week. More »
"All men should try to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why." James Thurber, who emitted that bon mot, preferred the Algonquin to Nachomama's. Of course, Thurber didn't live in St. Louis, and he shuffled off this mortal coil more than 30 years before John and Nancy St. Eve conceived the Tex-Mex joint that has since become a local institution, so we can only speculate about what the Thurbster might have said about one of the 'Mama's fajita platters. (Probably safe... More »
You're young, spirited, full of life, lusting for laughter, love and -- above all -- lunch. In your heightened state of ardor, you sense that your heart's immortal thirst is too big for moderation -- you aspire to sticky fingers, to sumptuous calories from fat, to the sort of meal after which the only compulsory exercise is a nap. Oh yeah, and you're broke. So you decamp with all speed to Nachomama's, where you order a portobello-mushroom quesadilla platter. Gathered here on a single... More »
