$32.50 for a pitcher of margaritas? $13.50 for a side of guacamole! I guess I should've known better than to go to Hawaii for Mexican food.

We're from L.A., we know Mexican food, and this is not really authentic as claimed. The food was okay -- I have to say it's very clean and fresh -- but lacked zest and spiciness. Even the salsa was way too mild. After all the fish and tropical food, it was okay for a change of pace, but I wouldn't... More

We enjoyed this Mexican restaurant. All you can eat warm corn chips with home made salsa. Lots of Mexican fare to choose from, several western dishes for those who don't want Mexican. Ample servings. Service is great, always busy. I loved the food there...

We like good margaritas, and Mariachi's has top shelf tequila - e.g. Patron, which you can get. The food is varied, fresh, and well-prepared. We especially like the shrimp cocktail - more of a shrimp, avocado soup, really, for dinner, and it was fixed well here. The flan was perfect.

We went to dinner on October 30th with 7 in our party. All seven had some type of issue with the food in general. One in our party ordered a strawberry margarita. It was really bad and did not taste like a margarita and or strawberry at all!

Lots of stuff to try. You can even do a mix and match special where you can pick 2 items. Tacos, burritos, etc... and get 1 of each, plus complimentary chips/salsa. Happy hour starts and 2 and they have a menu of both food and drinks at discounted prices.
