This restaurant is one of my favorites. The food is consistently good...my favorite is seafood enchilada...and the staff is professional, accommodating and friendly. Five stars for food.However the decor is dated. If ownership wants to do a quick and inexpensive redo, the dingy ceiling tiles should be replaced with new ones with updated lighting!

Solid local spot with Mexican and Tex-Mex offerings and a polished dining experience.Their chips and salsa were both fresh, and the salsa itself was flavorful but not memorable. The chicken fajitas were grilled well per my request, but lacking robust flavor. The sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, and tortillas were all fresh and well presented. The rice was quite delicious.Service was friendly and attentive. Good local business to support, worth giving it a try.

Food was pretty good, and the price was acceptable. The waiter was a little hard to track down and spent most of her time hiding in back, which was annoying when trying to order, get refills, and get the bill, but she was professional and friendly when actually here. She also forget to bring back our credit card. At the end of the day, I'd go here again, hopefully with a more helpful waiter.

Food is always great but I just went in to pick up my order and they say they are out of one of the things I ordered . Should have gotten a phone call to let me know instead of going in then having to place another order and wait another 20 mins . And having my other order cold. Hope it doesn’t happen again.

I love El Mariachi!The food is outstanding. When your plate arrives you take in the wonderful scents before your first bite and then ? with every bite, the most flavorful, perfectly prepared and presented dish you could ask for.

Food was a little pricey, but very good. Only issue we had was we ordered food to go and hard shell tacos were placed on top of items with sauce. When we got home, half of the shell had disintegrated, so we didn’t get to eat tacos, just the chicken filling.

Was my grandma's favorite restaurant and I love it too. Food is great and staff has been good when I have gone.

The seafood had too much lime. The margaritas were OK. Food was heavy and more on the Tex side rather than Mex. The service was good.

Met here for lunch. The decor doesn't quite fit the food. It's not objectionable... Just off.The service is absolutely fantastic. Never had to wonder where our server was, or look at an empty glass. Friendly and personable.The chips and salsa were fresh. Wish they had a "spicy salsa" as an option.My enchiladas were the best I have had in a while. Would definitely recommend.The fried ice cream caped off the meal perfectly.Hadn't been here for over 10 years... Just because if distance. But will definitely make the drive more often.

This place is really nice. I came here on a humbug just wanting something quick to eat after getting my tattoo. I was impressed with the service and the food! I ordered take out but ended up dining in while waiting for my ride. The food was delicious and a nice size portion for the price. The owner was very accommodating while I waited and asked me to visit again. I said I will definitely be back next month and will tell my friends about this spot. The set up was nice inside and great service and food was fresh. I had the shrimp mango and rice and order veggie nachos! Can't wait till next month to order something else.

First restaurant get together for four families in over a year. No problem with reservation, got the table we desired, and service and the menu were great. We'll be returning very soon.
