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

We were there on a Thursday night (3/27/14) and the place is small but was busy - we placed our drink order with three different people and it took 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive - the prices are good, food is okay, service not so much.

This was out first visit to El Mariachi Restaurant. The waiter was friendly, he restaurant itself had nice décor, the food was served quickly and was very good. The portions are large and the Grande Burrito was huge. The price was very good compared to other restaurants. I would recommend visiting here.

We stopped here for dinner one evening after walking out of a Mexican food restaurant across the street because we did not get waited on, or even acknowledged, for the 10 minutes we sat at the bar. When we entered El Mariachi we were greeted warmly and were waited on immediately. The food was really good -very ample portions. Definitely... More

I have been to this place before. I ordered the mini taco lunch. My chicken taps where wonderful. The only thing was the sides were cold. I still ate it and even cold it was good. Very cute decorations! I will still come back the next time I come to lake Havasu.

We chose this restaurant for our 1 night visit based on a few reviews but were disappointed. It was late in the evening, the staff was eating in the main restaurant area and appears a little annoyed that we turned up. The food had nothing special and the serves we're not particularly generous by the standards we had experienced over... More

My wife and I love this place and usually eat here a couple of times each time we visit Lake Havasu City. The food and service are always excellent and the selection of dishes are great. Many times the line is out the door, so get there early!

We were on vacation in Lake Havasu City, AZ and someone at the hotel recommended El Mariachi. We went there at 1:30p and had enough food that we never had dinner that day. The margaritas were exceptional and only $3.75 each. A wonderful little find located at 141 Swanson Ave, in a little strip mall. Don't waste your time in... More

It is always a shame when outsiders slam a great resturant just because they can't get that special bowdown service they are so use to in California. The food is one of the best prepared in our city. I suggest that if you prefer something unusual stay home and don't come here.
