This is THE go to mexican restaurant for authentic food on a consistent basis. Each time we go there the food is tasty, plentiful, and the carrots are great. Great value for the money.

We are big fans of Marieta's as they have the best drinks in top especially during the happy hours of 2-6 pm. The staff is excellent and we have become locals and they know our favorites.

Great Mexican! This restaurant has been here for some time and makes locals and visitors feel comfortable and well feed. Love the salsa and chips and wonderful margiritas but save room for their great Mexican pork. Enjoy!

The family has been coming here for years and years. The food is always good - the Strawberry Margaritas always refreshing. Some favorites are the Marieta's Chicken and the Carne Asada Quesadilla. Very friendly waiters with quick attentive service.

We visit this restaurant when we see my father-in-law. It always has good authentic food and service. Imagine our collective surprise on a Sunday early afternoon, For an afternoon brunch. A brisk business--good for Marieta's. But the service was lacking. Go enjoy their menu, I do think it us quality food, but expect a wait on Sundays around 1:00 in... More

The food is superior and the service is equally as great. The restaurant is exceptionally well staffed and the happy hour drinks are one of favorite reasons to frequent this location.

Been our family and friends hangout for years. Love it and don't really need others to know about it, but need to give them shout out! Can alter your orders to suit your taste. THE BEST FAJITA'S and MARGARITA'S in the USA!!! If you're new go on the restaurant side as bar doesn't have many tables and locals want them... More

My daughter and her family eat here every Thursday. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is festive. This is not a place for quiet reflection so only go if you want lively conversation with authentic Mexican food (and yummy Margaritas) I plan on becoming a regular on my future visits !
