Dad wanted to go to Mamavevas for dinner tonight. I know we have reviewed this place before, it is one of his favorite places to go to. It is close to his work. I like it as well. It is one of the better Mexican restaurants in the OKC area in my opinion, and the fact that they have a Peruvian menu as well is a nice touch.
We were given the chips, salsa and cheese sauce setup. We also asked for flour tortillas and their wonderful spicy green chili avocado sauce. We usually end up eating two rounds of this and I usually ask for another bowl of green chili sauce for my meal. We both decided to get margaritas tonight. Their house are really good and they don’t skimp on the good stuff.
He ordered the burrito. It was served with beans and rice and had a chili sauce on top of it. This was suggested by the waiter. He was looking for something he hadn’t had before and he was pleased with the suggestion. After a couple of margaritas and some time eating it he did finish it all.
I decided on the vegetable quesadillas without cheese or sour cream. The quesadillas had mushrooms, poblano peppers, spinach, and onion. I put the guacamole and some of the green chili avocado sauce inside.
The quesadillas were pretty good. The addition of the guacamole and sauce helped keep things together and added the creaminess that the cheese would have added. The poblanos were pretty mild and the avocado sauce added the much needed heat. The quesadillas were cooked very nice and the veggies were nicely cooked as well. I wasn’t really in the mood for a lot of food today, I was still partially full from lunch, and ended up only eating half of it. The other half got eaten up later on that evening however.
They recently got new tables with advertising spewed all over them. I personally think that they are tacky and make the place seem like it is sitting inside a truck stop or something, but I guess the owner felt he needed new tables and this was a free way of getting them.
We had a better experience this time (at least I did) than last time. The waiter seemed to be more into waiting tables and taking care of our food needs which made me happy with having enough water and other needs. Everyone was friendly as usual, and the food was good as usual. I should warn you that you will probably be seeing more reviews in the future.
