The restaurant is small, but the food is delicious. You'll definitely want to get the fried ice cream!

Over priced bland food. I do not recommend this restaurant. I realize food may cost a bit more in a tourist area but $18 for a steak burrito for lunch is too much.

We go to this restaurant 3-4 times per year. The staff is fantastic very friendly and attentive. The place is small and congested but the decor is great. A Mexican log cabin😀. Prices are very reasonable and quality and volume cannot be beaten. This has to be in your dinner plans when in the area.

The margaritas are from a store bought mix, the chili rellano was not battered or fried and included a slice of American cheese! The server was great and the only thing authentic about the place. We won't be returning.

My son goes to camp in nearby Tuftonborough. We make it a point to eat at El Mariachi while here. From the made at tableside guacamole to every meal I have tried the place is fabulous. Staff is great, always friendly. It's a busy place, highly recommend reservations on the weekend.

I've eaten at restaurants thoroughout Mexico and many Tex-Mex places in Texas so I didn't know what to expect here. My expectations were widely exceeded at El Mariachi. This is an excellent Mexican restaurant with some of the most tender chicken I have tasted anywhere. Guacamole is mashed up table side for optimal freshness and taste resulting in some of... More

I visited El Mariachi solo and sat at the bar. The restaurant had been recommended by friends. Great margaritas y authentic Mexican food. Not chain restaurant like at all. Not being a fan of spicy food I stayed with the fajitas. Large portions and their guacamole is a must have chunky delight.
