Excellent food, cheap prices, not fancy at all. This a mom and pop business. The location is in the 'rough' part of town but it is worth the visit.

This is a great family run restaurant. The food was cooked fresh. Service was perfect. I love this place. I guess that is why everyone gave it 5 stars!!!!!!!

Huh? I cannot begin to understand all the positive reviews. This place is a hole-in-the-wall in a dumpy neighborhood. That would be okay if the food was special, but it is far from it. Salsa was bland, guacamole was just okay (again, somewhat bland). I had fajitas -- shrimp were the small, out of the frozen section of your local supermarket kind. The beef was tough and cheap. Soft tortillas were microwaved out of a package. A bowl of vegetable mix to put on the fajitas was good. At least the place is inexpensive. I guess you get what you pay for.

Don't be put off by the area or the simplicity of the property. This is not a place to go our to celebrate, but it is a superb eatery. The food is freshly cooked, all created on site (be prepared to wait). The salsa is fresh, delightful, with a gentle tang. The guacamole is all you could ask for. My wife had a fajita and I a mexican steak. Both were very tasty. The only item i would forgo is the dessert... We ate to our heart's content, but the portions were so generous we had to pack some to take bcd to the motel: a mere $32.

Our first visit to El Mariachi provided us with authentic Mexican cuisine in a very simple setting. We were told by the owner that we could bring our own margaritas, but upon entering this very simple establishment, we felt quite uncomfortable drinking alcohol. A small dining area with full view of kitchen and checkout area told us this was not the kind of place to plan a dinner in the future, but the huge selection and friendly service still provided a great experience.
Would not plan a future dinner, but lunch will certainly be something to look forward to!
