Reasonable service – I recommend the restaurant- everything was fine. The food was good. The service was slightly slow, but all in all everything was fine.
Nopales, tortas and epazote leaves are the stuff from which exuberant, authentic Mexican food is made. – In Short
This family-run gemmay lack the expected burrito and enchilada combo plates but it does have Mexican originals like chicken soup enhanced with epazote leaves (a pungent flavoring also good with black beans) and nopales (young cactus flesh) salad dressed in puckery vinegar. There also is tortas, a classic Mexican sandwich in which fresh-baked telera bread is stuffed with beans, tomato, onion, lettuce, peppers, avocado and the meat of your choice.
Bueno ! – Just the quality of the food is reason to run (not walk) to El Mariachis'. The atmosphere is quaint, however, the service is personalble but slow - table management is an issue but not to where is would spoil your evening. It still rates a 9.2 - Muchas Gracias El Mariachi.
Unbelievable Mexican Food – This is simply some of the best Mexican Food I have ever had. It rank up there with New York places I have eaten at. The food is great, the service is spectacular and the atmosphere is really cool. This is a Mexican restaurant where the food is authentic, made by real Mexicans, not like other American style knock offs.,
Buenisimo! – This is as authentic as authentic gets! Beautiful decor, amazing service, accompanied by mexican food, music, drinks (and dessert!) that make you feel you've been teleported to Mexico. It's tough to beat.
Authentico – This is Mexican made by Mexicans...imagine that! Fabulous atmosphere, wide menu selection, and delectable entrees and margaritas.
