I have been eating here for years. They have some of the best chiles rellenos around with their delicious mole` sauce. Warm lighting, tasty margaritas, and large draft beers make El Mariachi a favorite.

I have been coming here since it opened. They have great food. My experience tonight was shocking and unacceptable. My waiter was incredibly rude and disrespectful. This was not a cultural misunderstanding or miscommunication. It was rude and disrespectful behavior by any standard. I will...More

I zipped into this restaurant for lunch not knowing what to expect other than some tasty Mexican food. I ordered the Enchiladas Poblano. The presentation was nice and the rice was okay, but the enchiladas were horrible! The beef in them was all fat. I...More

I had the chicken quesadilla to go with a side of rice and beans. The food was great and packaged great for travel. Chips were just ok but overall it was a good experience. Worth a visit.

Good for a semi-quick lunch. Chips and salsa seem bland, but enchilada was decent, though a little dry inside. Friendly service, just not too attentive. Great price for lunch in the area.

The service was very disjointed - a huge disconnect between staff, servers, bar and the kitchen but the food is worth coming for another visit. The portions were plentiful, the food made from scratch and delicious. On a Tuesday night - they haven't quite worked...More

Portions are huge. Very good homemade tortilla chips. Salsa very bland, but they have a selection of hot sauces in the table. Excellent veggie fajitas. Fish tacos were OK. Very friendly, accommodating service.
