First visit and it was very good. Very good service and a nice atmosphere. The food was very good. We will be back for sure. Our kids told us about it, they get the takeout and always enjoy.

I usually wait 6-10 times to form an honest opinion... this time I couldn't wait after the 4th. Main reason... No One in my group has ever had a bad meal. That is strange since someone always complains about something... not here. Very-Very Good restaurant!

I go here often at lunch, and the food is always good. Today I was craving a flan, so I order my usual, plus a flan. I could not believe that they would charge 5.95 for a flan, take into consideration that most lunch specials are 9.95. So, would I recommend? Yes, just be aware that adding desert will increase...

Solid food, great service, excellent margaritas. The 'pechuga de pollo' is so well-prepared! The food has Mexican and South American influences. Many options on the menu - you will find what you want. Easy to miss in the shopping center, but seek it out! Worth the effort!

Always enjoy their chicken chimichanga and complimentary warm tortilla chips and salsa. Reasonable prices and a menu with seemingly all of the traditional dishes. Very tasty margaritas too! All dinners include decent-sized portions of rice and refried beans.

The service and food is always exceptional at El Mariachi! We have never had a bad meal for dinner or lunch! The salads are always a good portion size. If you don't like what comes with your entree they are always extremely accommodating!

My first qualification for any Mexican restaurant is the quality of chips and salsa. They got it right on chips (served warm, crispy, great texture) and salsa (great taste with Cilantro) from the start. Probably my favorite tasting salsa I've ran across in a long time. I'm non-local so this will be last visit I presume. I had a chicken... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. You can get in and out quickly if you're in a rush, and the service is great. Prices also are quite reasonable.

I agree with 32999Beachgirl1012 - ugh! The only thing different is that we have been going to El Mariachi for over 15 years as they had the best Mexican food around! However, two months ago we went and ordered the usual Chili Rellano's which have always been outstanding! They were horrible - looked like leftovers, beans were watery, rice also... More

Our first visit here and the food was delicious. I had the breaded chicken which was not greasy at all.
