I stopped here for lunch with the family. Service was good and we were seated promptly. They give free chips with salsa and bean dip -- the second basket is a dollar if you want more. I had the flauta and cheese enchilada combo -- a very good deal for lunch. The strawberry margarita was very... read more

We were looking forward to really good Mexican food, based on the reviews we read. The margaritas were excellent, but found the enchiladas and burritos to be a bit bland. The steak and shrimp was very overcooked.

That being said, I hope some people can't find it because it is already plenty busy and the food is outstanding! The service was very quick and pleasant. The $4.00 house margaritas were good and...

This place has very decent food and really good prices. Lunch for 2 with a couple of margaritas is under $20.00! My husband loves their Menudo.

Good Mexican food and I should know as I lived in Mexico for 8 years in the 90s. A basic place with good service and good prices. Great beans and tacos al pastor. Very much like those I got in Mexico.

I always eat the Pork Chimi so it is hard for me to comment on any other fare. The reason my selection is so limited is that the Pork Chimichanga at El Mariachi is as good as I have ever had anywhere! Simply perfect every time.
