About Us

Mama Lu's is a taco-slinging, modern day taco shop and bar in the heart of Traverse City's downtown neighborhood. Executive Chef John Larson's menu is driven by authentic Mexican street food grounded in a fresh made to order tortilla. The affordable menu is complemented by well-crafted Margaritas and an unpretentious collection of beer, wine & spirits. The intimate 40 seat taco shop draws inspiration from bygone borderland watering holes to create a place where people from all walks of life can converge over cold libations, hit the spot cuisine & warm hospitality. A true fixture in the community, the fun & energetic vibes offer a destination for both date nights and family dining alike.
