Mama Dolores Review
Both meals were excellent and included a large selection of Mexican foods. The first meal consisted of a large platter of grilled shrimp, fresh corn tortillas, cheese enchiladas, roasted tomatoes, sour cream, lime juice, cilantro and black beans. There were several different types of meat served on this platter, including beef and pork. The portions were very large, which I thought would be a negative, but was not. The only thing that disappointed me about this platter was that the shrimp were not the freshest and I found myself ordering another dish at one point.
The second meal that we ordered was a salad that included a side of pasta with chicken and shrimp. I am glad that my opinion of Mama Dolores changed after I tried their lunch. Although I would have liked to see a bit more variety in the food selection, the meals were still very good. Mama Dolores is one of the only places that I would eat at if I was hungry enough to order a larger meal. The food tastes very good and there are always plenty of different dishes to order from the menu. The owner is a nice woman and she made ordering from her restaurant a breeze.
