My family live near by, sometimes going to the location in Harrison, sometimes to Lawrenceburg. The food is always great, especially the fajitas for which they are famous. Do not miss their margaritas. I'm not much of a drinker but I always get one since they go so well with the food. If they say on the menu the dish... More

We tried to eat here again as it was one of our favorite place to eat. We were seated and they brought over the chips and salsa. And that's the last we seen of anyone. No one came by to get our drink order or food order. One waiter was sitting down with his friends or family for over 10... More

You can go into many, many Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants in this country, and most times you will get the same food. Decent and good to eat, but nothing special. El Mariachi is a cut above that. Great food and service, prices that are a fair value and a WIDE variety of dishes. Far above your ordinary Mexican restaurant.

We have been here many times. I loved Mexican food and have tried most of the menu and have been very happy. My wife doesnt like Mexican and gets the steak. Its a really good steak. The portions are good size and the free chips and salsa are always a plus.

El Mariachi's is one of our favorite dining spots. The food is hot, fresh and delicious. The staff is friendly and attentive. Their prices help keep us in budget. Over all a excellent dining experience.

I eat at this restaurant several times a year. I really like their salsa and chips. Every time I go I try to order something different on the menu and so far I've enjoyed every one. Good service too.

Went there for lunch with a party of 9 people. We wanted to be able to talk and not have to wait for a long time for a table. They seated us right away. My wife loved her food and mine was very good. We will definitely return in the future when we are in Harrison.

We live very close to El Mariachi and when I moved here 3 1/2 years ago, it was the first place in this small town I went. I love their happy hour for cheap margaritas and beers- plus the appetizers are half price! I've gone with co-workers during dinner and didn't find their full size portions to be much larger... More

We have been to this restaurant 5 times now. Having said that I thought it was safe to write a fair review...First, if you are going here expecting to have a menu that is like a chain restaurant you will be disappointed. There is nothing normal here....and I don't mean that in a bad way. The menu is filled with... More
