Great Chimichanga's

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.

Reasonable price. Good margaritas. Tab for 2 entrees & 2 margaritas was under $30. We asked for a spicier hot sauce & we were delivered a choice of 2 type of hot sauces without any problem. They were both good but one with smoky ancho chilis hit my husband spot. A salsa & bean dip plus a basket of chips... More

After living in LA for a number of years I like good Mexican food. This was very bland and tasteless. Sorry but I have had better frozen Mexican dinners before. Not interested in going back.

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 end. The place is not...

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.
