First time visit

I was there tonight with a party of 7 others (probably the last time there for all of us). Terrible service: rude manager, rude, eye-rolling waiter. We were seated and ordered drinks but left before ordering food (but we paid for the drinks). We went to Margaritas down the street instead and had a much better experience.

Visited at the end of the weekend, so business was slowed down. Because of this we got tons of attention. The waiter picked up on the fact that we had never been there and wanted to give us tips on the food. Very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was a normal Mexican restaurant feel. Clean. Bathrooms out in the hallway... More

We went there early on a Friday night and had no wait. The atmosphere was fun and well themed. First off the chips and sala were delicious and addictive. We had regular margaritas as opposed to the giant happy hour ones, but they were very good. The fajitas and carnitas came out actually steaming (the restaurant was colder than the... More

We've finally found our "go-to" Mexican restaurant in the Metro East -- Mariachi's, which is on 159 in downtown Belleville. Their "fajitas burrito" is a HUGE burrito on a bed of fajitas vegetables on a hot plate. Excellent. Great margaritas, too. The salsa is not bad, but I've never found a Mexican restaurant in which I liked the salsa as... More

Its good food, dont get me wrong. But its 3rd for me for Mexican restaurants in Belleville. I recommend Mi Casa. The wait staff barely speaks english but the food is amazing. This place is good too, but if I was recommending Mexican, theres better places.

I love their salsa and chips. The fajitas are tasty. You can't go wrong with the quesadillas and the burritos. My husband likes all the pork dishes. Quick service and a good value for the money. The margaritas are the best in town.

Fun atmosphere, large variety on the menu but the biggest draw are the awesome margaritas! Food is good but not spectacular.
