El Mariaches is our favorite place to order Mexican food. The food is always very good, the waiters and waitresses are very pleasant and helpful and it's well priced. They have wonderful margaritas and a large selection of food choices. We also order out from here a lot for work lunches.

I love Mexican food and do not have a great place in Montana. Food at El Mariaches was very good and very large portions. Service was excellent.

Our visit here was great. We were looking for some good Mexican food and we weren't disappointed. The lunch special choices were good and affordable. We selected Pork Carnitas and a veggie burrito, both tasted great.

Cute atmosphere. I wanted enchiladas, but there is flour in the sauce, so the waiter brought me a small bowl of their delicious Rabchero sauce which was Gluten Free to try. They made my enchiladas with it and that was perfect. Very nice staff.

Our server was so nice! The food was really good--much better than we expected. The table side guacamole was fun, and the salsa bar is delicious. The best part: I ordered a Cadillac Margarita. It was perfect! It was huge! And it was $8.99. So I had to order a second one.

Great Lunches at bargain prices. I spend 4 moths a year in Mexico & this is as good as I get there. Excellent Carnitas, Enchiladas Verde & Chili Verde. In the Summer I am in Redding almost weekly eating lunch at this fine cafe.

I could be wrong but I thought I was told the owners of Puerto Vallerta now own this one too. I like the atmosphere a little better at Puerto Vallerta but there is nothing bad I can say about El Marichi's. Good food. Nice staff. Convenient location. Never had poor food or service. Always good.

We hadn't been there for a while so decided to go for lunch a couple of days ago. It was about 1:30 so the lunch specials were still available. I chose Pork Carnitas and my wife had Chicken Fajitas. They were both excellent. They have a salsa bar so you can spice-up your salsa, which we always do. When we... More

Not to impressed with this restaurant. Was told the food was great, but turned out that not as good as I had heard. However it is acceptable if you have no place else to go.
