Mami's Authentic

Business Overview

Mami’s origin began over 50 years ago when Estela Rodgriguez, oldest of ten siblings, responsibility included providing meals for her nine younger siblings while her parents were working in the fields of Piedres Negras, Mexico. Estela developed a love and passion for food at the young age of thirteen, even more so, providing others with a unique and authentic experience while enjoying Mexican inspired meals. When you come from humble beginnings, you show your love through your abilities. Her strongest ability was her cooking. She passed this on to her children who have passed it on to their children. The love and passion became more evident to the public in 2003 when her daughters Elisa and Elsa started catering. In 2004, the oldest daughter, Elsa, went public by opening up the first location in Muscatine. In 2011 the business was handed over to her son, Gerardo Vasquez, one of Mami’s special grandchild, who has a great passion for expanding Mami’s recipes to a broader audience. In 2011, he bottled up the first jar of Mami’s Authentic Salsa. In 2012, the business expanded the experience to Iowa City, Iowa and added chips to the product line. Mami's Mexican Restaurant now has locations in Muscatine, Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, and Boulder, Colorado. 

Mami's restaurant, located in the Muscatine Mall, has dine-in seating, and also offers carry out, delivery, and catering for your office, party, or church.
