“Best Mexican food in the Blacksburg area.”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Whenever my husband and I get a hankering for Mexican food, it's hard to find decent Mexican in a college town (there are lots of choices, but most of the restaurants are not very good). El Mariachi has a "different" menu, with authentic Mexican cuisine choices. Service is always good and the food will feed you for several days because the portions are so big. Excellent food.

“Convenient and Good”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I went here because it was next to my hotel and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Good value as it was a huge serving. I also got chips and salsa with my take out meal.

“Next door to Comfort Inn”
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.
