I ordered the flautas con pollo, (rolled fried corn tortillas filled with chicken and covered with salsa and lettuce and a bit of sour cream. The salsa was great, the flautas were cooked to... read more

I was by myself after a Doctors appointment in Lawrenceville, and was starving for dinner. I hadn't had Mexican food in a while so decided to stop in. This was my second time here. The food really is fresh, homemade and most of all very good. However this will be my last time dining here. It really is a whole... More

We love to eat out, today we went to El mariachi and we ordered tacos and pupusas. Everything was so delicious, except the horchata, a drink, I have had it before in another place and was way better. I would recommend to at least give the restaurant a try, very fresh and cheap Mexican food. :)

A work colleague took me here for lunch. I was a tad bit apprehensive when we parked her BMW half on the sidewalk and half in the road, and then approached an awning that could use some sprucing up. Place was spotless clean, wait staff very pleasant, decor very plain , BUT THE FOOD WAS AWESOME. I was actually pleasantly... More

The decor and location may be somewhat off putting, but don't let your first impressions win. This is a really great restaurant. The food quality is really good. Bring your Spanish: they hardly speak a word of English here. We keep going back. Very friendly. Full of Spanish-speaking patrons with their families. Make sure you order the guacamole which is...

Just had lunch at this place with my husband. The place is tiny but the service is friendly and fairly quick. For the non spanish speaker there are English descriptions on the menu. I had the papusas con loroco which are homemade corn tortillas filled with cheese and edible flowers that are similar to broccoli. My husband had the tostadas... More
