“Next door to Comfort Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Excellent service and decent food - good value for the money. Reasonably authentic mexican (what americans call mexican food - burritos, chimichangas, fajitas, etc.), good family atmosphere.

“Very nice Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Stopped by with my wife after a business meeting about 12:30 pm on a Monday afternoon. Was seated promptly and drink orders taken. 16oz draft Dos Equis, taco salad and #8 luncheon special all came to a whopping $14 including tax!

Food was good and served quickly. Nice ambiance. Restaurant was only half full and many of the patrons appeared to be Mexican, which speaks well. We eat here once or twice a year. It's always predictably good, uncrowded and reasonably priced.

“Real Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Authentic to the core, from service to food preparation. I frequent the Mexican Village area in Detroit, and this restaurant would fit right in....worth the trip and worth finding if you are in the area.

“Good inexpensive quality Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

A group of us go out to restaurants about once a week and we visit this one regularly. The nacho Grande lives up to 'Grande' and is very good. So is their Combination Plate. The staff is quick to serve and the food comes out in about 15 minutes. We have never been disappointed here.

“Best Mexican Restaurant in New River Valley!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Food has always been consistantly delicious since we have been visiting the El Mariachi three years ago! Try the fajitas--they are the best I have ever had anywhere and the portions are healthy and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and efficient, checking on us several times to see if we need anything. If you like Mexican--you cannot go wrong with El Mariachi!!
