We decided to give El Mariachi a try at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. What a mistake. We were one of five families dining in the resaurant. 45 minutes after we ordered our food, I requested to have our meal placed in to-go boxes. Once we arrived home I found that one of the meals was missing all of the sides... More

Well I have to say this place was definitely not easy to find, and even with the GPS I had to rely on the kindness of strangers to guide us to the front door. The sign wasn't that noticeable at night, and literally it's in a strip mall of shops off the street. We were happy to find the place... More

Found this Mexican restaurant Sunday after Church. Very good food and service. I am a Mexican food fanatic and this place serves authentic Mexican food. A plus is it is a BYOB restaurant. A little hard to find but is worth it. I would heartily recommend.

We went on a Saturday night and though the place filled up quickly, they seemed to manage the flow well and there was no line waiting. The staff was friendly, and the food was good. We had the papaya avocado salsa for appetizer and it was very delicious. The ambience could have been improved quite significantly if they could play... More

Had dinner with my wife. Decent atmosphere and very good chips and salsa prior to the meal. Taste of the food was good. My wife enjoyed her enchalada, but the shredded pork in my tacos was terribly dry and tough; bordering on inedible. Might have been an off night, but it really spoiled my experience. Of course I complained; was... More

This restaurant is a bit of a dive (hence 4 stars instead of 5), but food is fantastic. The tacos are excellent--even without sour cream and guacamole! I am on weight watchers and even without cheese (there is a sprinkle) they are fantastic.

El Mariachi 2 offers great food at decent prices. I have been coming here for the past two years when I want good Mexican food. Notes. There is no restroom in the restaurant. It can get crowded during lunch and service slows significantly. The food is good. I have had the mariachi tacos and the campeon burrito. Chips and salsa... More

El Mariachi 2 is a little hard to find, being tucked away a few doors Diamond Head of Price Busters in Aiea. The decor is pretty simple, bright colors with a few sombreros on the walls. The place holds about 30 people by my guess. The noise level can be a little high because of the acoustics. This was a... More

This was one of the best meals we had during our trip to Hawaii. Plenty of food for 2 and tasted great. Chips and salsa were also very good
