The food here is good. Don't get me wrong. I have only ever eaten one thing that didn't wow me (tacos). The enchiladas are great as are the quesadillas (jamby). The margaritas are great. You can get the famous hubcap margarita or a pitcher. Just be aware that you probably want to split this between 3 people or you are... More

Ha! I couldn't resist the play on words. A fun restaurant--even during a late Friday lunch. Visiting from the northern burbs of Chicago and this restaurant gave a great glimpse into a Baltimore neighborhood. The Colts and Orioles memorabilia was fun to look at, but then you make it to Elvis Land and just wow. Didn't expect that. Didn't do... More

It's been a while since we've been here. So we were in the neighborhood and we had to go. It's still fantastic! I decided to get the wings, my wife and daughter got the chicken truck tacos and my son got the guacamole and nachos. Everything was fantastic and our waitress was the best! It is a Baltimore landmark.

This place is a fun atmosphere. Food always great and consistent with every visit here. Love the guac, the quesadillas, and the margaritas. If you love Mexican food and Margaritas this is your place. The Elvis theme add to this fun place. Its small , so expect a little wait for a table. Its well worth it!

We went Sunday around 130, we only had to wait a little while maybe 25 mins. Got the hubcap margarita again and it was awesome, 5 of us shared it. Beers cold the original nachos were huge, big enough for 5 to share. Me and my girl shared the meatloaf, which sounds weird to get at a Mexican joint, but... More

The food was poorly prepared, the margarita's tasted water down and the service was poor. It does not live up to the original in Canton!

We had the midnight munchies and were staying in Canton. We walked up to the square and asked the policeman what he would recommend. Without hesitation he said "Nacho Mama's." The place was packed, the music was 80's, they serve our chips and salsa in a hubcap! It's the kind of local dive that I LOVE. We were warned that... More

Had a local kind of vibe with Colts and Orioles stuff all around - and velvet Elvis paintings. Great food - casual with a small "c." Bacon wrapped shrimp taco 🌮💥💥💥. Didn't try the Hubcap Margarita because with four straws the backwash would have been better for intimate friends.
