I do believe they are all closed except the one on Base and the food there leaves a lot to be desired. They are using package sauces now. As a German I just cook my own. I can give you some cooking tips if you want to. No wait, there is a restaurant on Hondo Pass, but I have never been.

Well, the food at the German Community Club is not too bad. But as Daniela I am cooking my own German food.

I don't like the German restaurant on Hondo Pass. German Community Club is better. Besides they are not even Germans.

Yes Mamacita was the best place to go in Juarez. My friends and I used to go there all the time. She treated us Germans always great respect and loved to have fun.

She put on the German uniform and the old jukebox would blast Neue Deutsche Welle such as Nena, Trio, etc.

We would go to Mamas have a few drinks and then leave most of our cash including credit cards with her. We only took a few bucks and our IDs. After partying all night we would return to Mama and she would return our wallets.

Mama was totally honest. I remember her business cards written in poor German. It contained her name and phone number and we could call her day or night in case we would get into trouble. She would actually bail guys out of the Mexican jail. Nobody had to pay her back but everybody always did.

Mama deserves to rest in peace. She had a hard life. She will always be well remembered by myself and all others who visited and knew her personally.

She is now burried with a nice head stone in Juarez financed by former German soldiers. She is burried at the: Jardines Eternos

My time in Juarez with Mama was from 1983 until 1986.
Mama we miss you.
