I’m not one to choose Mexican food when we got out to eat. I like it but I don’t make that my first choice. Mama Chus has been in Orem a long time. It’s always busy and the food is excellent. The service is always...More

If you want a fast and yummy meal, go here. It's unbelievable how fast their meals come out. The service is good too. It's tucked away on the north side of 800 North before you go into the canyon.

We enjoy this restaurant. The food is consistently good, and the service is also good. The prices are also very reasonable. And usually, unless they are very busy, the meals are served quite quickly.

Mama's Chus provides good Mexican food at a very reasonable price. Nothing fancy but a real bargain price wise for the amount of food provided. We will definitely come back for another visit and bring friends with us next time.

I enjoy this place when I am looking for good food, healthy portions, and a very low price. It is a dive, but the food is great.

I've been going here for years now and it's also a favorite with my teenage kids and my wife. My favorite is the carne asada plate, but I've also enjoyed the chicken enchilada for lunch. Lunch is served very quickly, so they handle crowded lunch...More

I'm guessing when Mama Chu's opened it was one of the few Mexican restaurants around. Now there are plenty of really great chefs who have figured out Mexican is more than beans, rice and cheese. I look for Fresh and flavorful in my Mexican. This...More

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...More
