Friendly place and decent food

Stopped there before a show at Rascals Live. Good local place with decent authentic Mexican food. Quantities are sufficient and prices are realistic. Service was quick and efficient, we will be back

We decided to try all of the "Mom & Pop" Mexican restaurants in the Quad City area during our visits and El Mariachi was our choice this time.

A local place that has better food than it's looks would indicate. I love the dishes made with eggs. They have tacos with eggs and potatoes or eggs, potatoes, and refried beans. The tortillas taste homemade. Or my favorite - eggs a la Mexicana - eggs, peppers, onions, beans with flour tortillas. Very reasonable.
