“Best Mexican food in the Blacksburg area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Whenever my husband and I get a hankering for Mexican food, it's hard to find decent Mexican in a college town (there are lots of choices, but most of the restaurants are not very good). El Mariachi has a "different" menu, with authentic Mexican cuisine choices. Service is always good and the food will feed you for several days because the portions are so big. Excellent food.

“Convenient and Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I went here because it was next to my hotel and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Good value as it was a huge serving. I also got chips and salsa with my take out meal.

“Next door to Comfort Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Excellent service and decent food - good value for the money. Reasonably authentic mexican (what americans call mexican food - burritos, chimichangas, fajitas, etc.), good family atmosphere.
