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. :)

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
