Los Mariachis is a wonderful restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Sit down and chips/salsa appear. The bar area is remolded with great high tables and chairs. Went here for my birthday drink-of course I had a House Margarita. The Margaritas are the best that I have ever had..

Usually, we head for bland restaurants in Wallingford, because we are taking Mom out to lunch from the Masonic Home. The normal schedule was off today, so my sister & I were looking for something different. We found it! This place is wonderful, and we will be back. The chips & salsa were fresh and warm; both choices of salsa... More

There are pitifully few bona-fide joints this side of the Mason-Dixon Line, but one that comes pretty close is Los Mariachis in Wallingford. My husband and I came across this restaurant by happenchance and decided to give it a shot, What a wonderful... More

Los Mariachis was a great surprise--it is clearly a notch above most of the other Mexican restaurants in Southern New England. The staff was warm, welcoming, efficient, and clearly proud of their restaurant and the food they produced. I'm not a huge mariachi band fan and they had two guys playing and singing, but that was really my own complaint.... More

I have had authentic Mexican food in Texas, Arizona and a few fine restaurants in Connecticut (Su Casa, El Sombrero, La Boca ...). I would have to say that the food at this restaurant was the most tasteless Mexican food I have ever had in my life. The Ultimate margarita was a joke. The chicken enchilada had absolutely no flavor... More

Great for lunch or dinner. Serves authentic Mexican food. Definitely try the tamales. I've lived in town for a while now and can't believed I missed out on the gem until recently. Good family atmosphere too.

The burritos are packed and delicious. The wait staff is hit or miss. The owner is nice and comes out to greet you at times. Sometimes they have live music which is cool cause its not that loud. Wait staff needs some lessons in service and drink order. Overall nice place.
