My husband were looking for a nice restaurant for a satisfying meal. It had been a somewhat rough day, and we just wanted to relax. El Mariachi was exactly what we wanted and needed. Excellent food and attentive service. We've been here many times before...More

We recently rediscovered El Mariachi (after many years) when friends brought us here for dinner. The place is nicely decorated and lively. The service staff is attentive and helpful. My wife is lactose intolerant so we always ask what options we have. They suggested a...More

We come here often, because we like the food and service here. The steak fajitas are extremely good. Service was faster than usual--too fast, in fact. Our food arrived before our drinks.

This mom and pop restaurant has been one of our favorites for years!!! We love their fish. Lately, we think the size is less, but it's still a good place to dine.

Looking for genuinely watered down Mexican fare? Well, look no further! Completely okay if you're not looking for anything spicy or too much excitement. Not bad, and it's certainly the kind of place I'd take my 85 year old father in law for a taste...More

Three of us went for dinner. We were seated right away, and brought some very thin, homemade corn chips and fresh salsa – delicious. I tried the Chiles Rellenos, which came with rice and beans. It was all hot, fresh and excellent. The place is...More
