Really good use in an old KFC building

I had been told to take a chance on this place and go inside. We did that for lunch today and we really enjoyed it. Since it was really early, we did not imbibe, but the food was very good. I had shrimp tacos and my friend had a taco salad with shrimp. We were both happy and satisfied. I... read more

We arrived on a Thursday at approximately 6PM and made our way directly to the small bar where we were provided both the regular and happy hour menus. We each chose a coconut margarita which reminded me of a pina colada – so good and only $5. Also provided were flavorless chips origins and two salsas, tomato and cilantro. The... More

Fast service, food hot and fresh. Best Margaritas around. I enjoy the experience at Los Mariachis each time I go. Friday night they have a man playing songs on the guitar. The beef fajitas is delicious.

First, a disclaimer: I'm no expert on Mexican food, and I am aware that Mexico has many regional cuisines. Los Mariachis may not be a truly authentic Mexican restaurant but I love it. The chips are always warm and fresh, the salsas (green and red) authentic and, in the case of the red, too hot for this girl! Margaritas are... More

With the plethora of alleged "Mexican" restaurants that seem to be proliferating, one can become jaundiced toward Mexican food, as each restaurant or chain puts their own signature sauces and touched on their dishes. It is indeed difficult to find a true Mexican restaurant in the Northeast, one where the flavor is in the dish and the diner is left... More

Sat at the bar and as busy as the bar tender was he kept my glass full and chips in front of me. I ordered up a lunch special of tacos and grabbed fried fish and spicy pork. Both were very good, they were on double corn tortillas which I love. Fresh cut lines, cilantro and onions made these taste... More

A friend of ours recommended this place so after driving by for months, we finally stopped in for dinner on a Friday night. It was pretty busy and the parking lot is small. The girls were very pleasant upon entering & I saw an empty table in the bar area and we were able to sit there. Our waitress was... More
