Mamacita’s, a family-owned restaurant in Hollywood, is only a few feet away from the beach, with a gorgeous ocean front view and an eclectic friendly ambiance for family and friends to enjoy! The restaurant was originally named Marlon’s after the family’s first son, but when he grew up, he joined the family business and renamed it Mamacita’s, which means “sexy or fine-looking woman,” and the name stayed. Music, margaritas, tacos, and a flair that isn’t only Mexican, but also includes a range of Cuban dishes that go well together. Enjoy the festivities!
