We love this place! It is one of our regular "go-to" places. We actually very rarely go out to eat but when we do this is great! The staff is super friendly and efficient. Flor and Adrianna are our favorite waitresses ever and Junior is one of the best bartenders in our experience. We highly recommend the "Make Me Happy"... More

We ordered two coronas. We received to glasses of water in corona glasses. Our food came out, Where are our beers? They finally came out half way thru our meals. Is it a custom or what. The routine usually is drinks come out then you order. It's all in the training. Management needs to assess this problem

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.

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!
