“Nice presentation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Food is fresh, atmosphere is festive, but not overdone. Wait staff are very professional and attentive. I like that you can dine in one of several separate rooms.

“Great atmosphere and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

The food was really good and the joint was jumpin'. The homemade chips and salsa were great. We will definitely go back.

“Great food, great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Super, low-key, great food. Mariachi music some Saturdays, plus private rooms (tiny ones...how fun!)

“So Friendly and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We love Mariachi in Rockville and in Frederick but Mexican Cantina, all of the same family, has the broadest menu. Last night we had a small birthday for our grandaughter. The food was outstanding and the little Tres Leche cake with a candle thrilled her. Everyone in this restaurant is so friendly and helpful, and that is the way of the Mariachi restaurants all.
