We got into Lihue and into our hotel late in the evening and were hungry for more than pre-packaged food. Walking outside of the Kauai Marriott Resort we stumbled across Mariachi's and were glad we did. So glad we ate there again for breakfast the next morning and again for dinner a few days later. Breakfast was even better than... More

This place was by far the worst Mexican food we've ever had. We asked for the check after a couple bites and left without eating. Margaritas were not good either. It was a terrible experience.

the''thing'' i ordered was green, without taste and disgusting, we were served buy an arrogant busboy who seemed to want us to go fast. The price was a joke too. Go to Kalapaki Joe left instead of right upstairs. Way more cool and yummy.

To Go, Enough portion, friendly correspondence, free extra flesh sarusa, Just 10 minutes to wait, taste OK and less than $20-. Here is a tourist town and I am. It's OK to me!

We love this restaurant as we are always treated like family. The food is good and they are always willing to make something different than the menu and the way we like it. Flor is about the sweetest and best waitress we've ever had the pleasure of tipping! Also Junior is an amazing bartender!

Maybe I've been spoiled by my hometown Mexican restaurant and was expecting too much. The food was much to bland for me. The chimichanga was filled with stringy pot roast and potatoes. That may have been good if I was looking for pot roast, but.... And I've never heard of roasted potatoes in Chimichangas. At least one half of the... More

We had breakfast here our first day. It was very good. We had the dinner special another night and was not disapointed! Would return.
