Mama Lu’s

Mama Lu’s – A Modern Day Taco Shop

When vacationing to Traverse City, you will find some incredible food awaiting you at the local restaurants. Some of these local establishments may serve cuisine you would not expect of a Michigan city such as Mama Lu’s. This local favorite is a modern-day taco shop that features incredible Mexican food with a modern interior. Eating at Mama Lu’s is an experience that every visitor should enjoy.

Simple Menu, Incredible Food

You will not find multiple pages on the menu at Mama Lu’s but instead a single page of delicious food. As the name suggests, you can find an exquisite selection of tacos at Mama Lu’s. Each taco is served a la carte and made street taco style. This allows you to mix and match whichever tacos you are in the mood for! Choose from the chicken, beef, pork belly, tempura fried fish, baja shrimp, or the veggie made with falafel, zucchini, and pepper pico. Children can order from the Ninos menu featuring the “plain” taco that skips all the spices. Add an appetizer to your order where you can select from guacamole, queso dip, pork rinds, chips and salsa, nachos, or even a salad. The tacos can easily be paired with a side of rice, beans, or street corn if an appetizer will fill you up too early. Last but certainly not least is the tasty churro that is the perfect dessert to complete your meal.

Ice-Cold Beverages for the Adults

Pair your incredible tacos with an ice-cold cerveza available by the can or bottle. Earthen Ales is on tap with an exclusive Mexican style lager. If beer is not your beverage of choice you can even order a glass of wine, handmade cocktail, or a flight of tequila. This flight uses traditional tequila in one-ounce tasting glasses; mescal is also available for those looking to expand their spirit palate.
