I'm surprised this place is still in business. I went here many years ago had the food was terrible. From recent reviews I see it hasn't changed since then.

The food is of poor quality, bereft of flavor and the service is no better, we went there because a member of our party wanted Mexican food and it's the only local place we could come up with.

Sorry to say our experience was not one of the best. After reading reviews for another restaurant we compared the two and decided on this one. The restaurant was empty which we thought would work in our favor, but they placed us in a table by the back door and forgot about us. Service was non existent. Paella was bland,... More

Consistently good food, great social atmosphere, always a fun place for food, friends, and of course a few drinks. Outdoor dining and very comfortable bar a big draw without being overcrowded or compromising ambiance. Staff really friendly and in tune with atmosphere and crowd.

My family & I went kind of late one night & they had no problem serving us even though it was close to closing. The food & service are always great and fairly reasonable prices! This has become one of our regular places to go since living nearby for the past 11 years.

We arrived a bit after noon on a Saturday and were seated immediately. Service was prompt and friendly. My friend had enchiladas and I had flautas. Both were served with rice and beans and topped with sour cream and guacamole. The food was delicious and filling. I would most definitely return.

The food and service at El Mariachi is outstanding. Additionally, the drinks are the best on Long Island. The talapia is one of the better dishes on the menu; highly recommended. I will definitely make this a regular stop for me as I recently moved to the area.
