A far cry from the old Mexican 2000

My hubs and I recently rediscovered Los Mariachis. It is located on route 5 in Wallingford, in an old KFC building (note: a picture posted by westie2 of a red building is NOT Los Mariachis!!) We used to know this place as Mexican 2000, which served pretty mediocre food, so we're assuming this is a... read more

I'm always on the lookout for good Mexican good, and Los Mariachis may just be my new favorite Mexican restaurant around! Chicken Flauntas were awesome, mango margaritas were really good, and the salsa that came out with the chips had a good kick. I'm a fan!

This attractive small restaurant with a delightful outdoor dining patio delivered an excellent dining experience. The entrees were very tasty, certainly better than most Mexican fare, and the Margaritas and Mojitos were outstanding. The only drawback was the odor of mold inside the restaurant. We ate outside, so that was not a factor for us. The somewhat tacky Mariachi musicians... More

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... 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
