Delicious Chimichangas, great atmosphere

My wife and I both ordered the special of the night Chimichangas, one shredded beef and one ground beef. They were delicious. The sauce with the chips at the start was very good, one thick and one thinner, both tasty and different. The sweet tortilla bites with whipped cream was a nice touch at the... read more

Ate here twice last spring and once this year. Food very good, wait staff friendly, and restaurant clean. Small, downtown place close to the Bridge. Happily recommend this restaurant.

Good food, good service, cold beer. This is a small place, so it can get a little crowded and there isn't much room to sit and wait. However, the food is well worth it. Not fancy, just good Mexican comfort food

Fast, good food, good price. I had Los Tres Amigos, which is 3 enchiladas each with a different meat and sauce. They were ALL good! Hubs had shredded beef nachos and he liked them. Would definitely go back.

So very glad I had read about this gem on Yelp and TripAdvisor. Had a fantastic lunch and was so happy I wanted to go back for dinner....but I was just too full from all the lunch food. Portions are large, food is very, very good and service was outstanding. A tiny little place in a strip mall, who knew?... More

Having been raised in a mexican household where half the meals we ate were mexican home cooking I found this little treat here in Havasu. Good prices, and great food. Not your chain restaurant food, tasty and priced well.

Thank you tripadvisor, we are staying in Havasu and checked your site for a good Mexican Restaurant, and we found El Mariachi. The food is amazing, great service, and very inexpensive! We took friends who are annual visitors to Havasu, they all loved it and said it was the best Mexican Restaurant they've ever been to, and will be back.

We've been vacationing in Lake Havasu every year for 5 years now and have not missed a trip to El Mariachi, in fact some years we've went twice! The chimichanga is the best (I think) but my husbands favorite is the burrito grande......my kids love the enchiladas and I've had the tostada's in the past and not been disappointed at... More
