If you are looking for great Mexican food in the quad cities,look no further. Great service and great food. This is not a fancy restaurant by no means. Please give them a try and you will keep going back for more.

Thank Shawn S

My wife suggested this place and we both were very disappointed not only with the cold food, but the lack of service. The chicken fajitas were cold, the sauces that came with them were not enough for 3 fajitas.

Great little place, had the combo plate for 2, so filling we actually didn't need to have dinner!

The chilli burrito was very tasty, but you should try the carne one!

I chose this place for my wife's birthday as she loves Mexican food and culture. We weren't disappointed. The live mariachi band was a highlight and even agreed to play a song requested by my wife. Food was good and fresh, and the service was efficient and friendly enough for a busy restaurant. I would definitely recommend it to others, and we plan to go back. Probably the best mexican we've had since we moved here 4 years ago.

We ordered the big combo that came with nachos, tacos, and quesadillas. The nachos werent that bad, but they were drowning in bean paste (A LOT of bean paste), which made them soft after a while, and soft nachos is something most people aren't going for. We got beef tacos, and chicken quesadillas. Both fillings were bad. The chicken was so dry and so tasteless, it was disgusting. So was the beef.
The service was bad as well. We felt quite uncomfortable while eating as the staff kept walking around us back and forth. The place was empty as it was a monday so no need for that. Overall, there's a lack of good mexican places in São Paulo, and El Mariachi was our last hope, and sadly let us down.
