My name is Eric Phillips and I have lived on Marco Island for 24 years with my wife Nancy Phillips and my 4 children Dane, Peyton, Braden, and Jade.
I arrived in Marco back in 1985 and met my soon to be partner Tony Rainone. We became great friends. I managed one of his famous restaurants the Crazy Flamingo for over 10 years when we decided to open Nacho Mama's.
At first it was a small and quaint establishment seating about 50 people, but as the years went on we decided to expand to where we are now,190 seat indoor and outdoor eatery. We have a full liquor bar featuring over 20 different tequilas, 6 beers on draft, 30 beers in a bottle, and 8 different wines by the glass.We have one of the best margaritas in SW Florida. We Have been in the new place for 4 years during that time my great friend and partner passed away and has been greatly missed.
I have continued to do my best from all the knowledge that Tony had taught me. He always said, stay consistent with what you do and the people will come. I have followed that lead, and today Nacho Mama's is 14 years and counting. Tony will be sorely missed, but will never be forgotten. Rest in peace my friend!
Since 1998 Nacho Mama's has been one of Marco Islands favorite places, for a great meal and a fun time. Nacho Mama's is conveniently located at the heart of the Marco Walk Plaza, within walking distance of all major Hotels and Condominiums. You can sit back and relax in one of our many cozy Booths, or outside on the Piazza under the Stars, surrounded by sparkling Fountains.
The Menu is as colorful and inviting as the Restaurant itself. It ranges from Appetizers like the sensational "Nachos Grande", through an array of Soups and Salads to the enormous selection of fresh Entrees, either on the Tex or the Mex side. Some of the House specialties include the fabulous sizzling Fajitas with all the trimmings, or the gargantuan Baja Fish Tacos. On the more traditional side there are Chicken Wings with three delicious flavors, one of the best Burgers on the Island, and a variety of fresh Chicken and Fish Sandwiches, just to name a few. Nacho Mama's is a recipient of the prestigious platinum Plate award for the best Mexican Cuisine. Yet it doesn’t stop here, The large full liquor Bar is stocked with some of the finest Tequilas on this side of the Rio Grande. If you like an ice cold Cerveza our beer pool is filled to the gills with 27 varieties. Nachos is a Family friendly Restaurant, with a small Game Room attached. The kitchen is open for Lunch and Dinner, 7 Days a Week from 11am till close. There are happy Hours daily with wonderful deals like $2.00 Tacos and $2.50 draft Beers.

So, the next time you are visiting Marco Island, and are looking for a reasonable priced, family oriented restaurant that has good unpretentious food, or you are an "Islander" with a slight case of Cabin fever, please come over to Nacho Mama's and enjoy a good time.
After all Mama’s knows best!
