Great food, fantastic service, loved the salsa. Prices were very good, I had a dish with sautéed green peppers-onions-mushrooms-scallops-chicken, with rice & a grilled pineapple ring. Was AWESOME.

Were in downtown Austin which is super cool and wanted some Mexican food so went in here. The service was very good and the presentation was good. The food was good but now great. They had a number of items that had "nacho sauce" as an ingredient which was unique.

This is my favorite place in Austin, MN. This is also where I take my visitors. If you come visit me, you can count on going to El Mariachi for dinner. The food is very good and the service is great. Good chips and salsa, too.
