“Great Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012 via mobile

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that dissuade you. The food is great, and the restaurant is very family friendly.

“worst service I've ever seen.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Terrible service and not very good food. After seeing a rat come out of the kitchen, I told one of the rude and lazy waitresses. She said most restaurants have rat infestations. I asked for the check and went to a nice and clean Japanese place down the road.

“Best Mexican food on Windward Oahu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

El Mariachi is our go to Mexican Resturant. Far more authentic than many of the others. particularly good chile verde with slow cooked pork done to perfection. The staff is very responsive and family oriented.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012 via mobile


Stopped at this place after getting gas for the car and what a surprise! The looks are deceiving from the outside, but it's a cute place. It's not fancy, but our food was AMAZING. I didn't think my kids would like it, but they polished off all their food.
