“Great Mexican food in a very friendly beach environment”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Mariachi is a gem just a half block from the ocean in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. On a recent visit, our group of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner in this incredibly friendly restaurant. On the drink side, margaritas and sangria were excellent and very reasonably priced. For starters, the mussels in garlic sauce, quesadillas, Chile con Queso and Pupusas were all delicious. For main courses, their Seafood enchiladas were jam packed with fresh seafood, including perfectly cooked shrimps and scallops. Their Paella was a delight, with a generous array of seafood and perfectly seasoned saffron rice to delight any palate. And the prices are very modest, particularly in a vacation resort location.

“Yummy Mexican food”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The food was great and the service was good. We were there pre-season and on a week night, so can't speak to the service on a busy summer weekend.

“Great food that ever disappoints”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Went to Mariachi for dinner. The food is always wonderful. I had the blackened tuna fajitas & homemade sangria. Excellent.

A small hiccup when my partner's dinner came out almost immediately & I had to wait a few minutes for mine. I truly think someone else's dinner came to our table in error by the food runner. Both him & the waiter apologized profusely for the delay. No big deal. Things happen. I was just so pleased with the meal, that it made up for the wait! The owner came to our table & as always, made us feel welcome. Can't wait for warmer weather to enjoy the upstairs outdoor seating without the plastic & enjoy the warm breeze.

“Need more servers”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

So the food is always delicious here, but for at least our last three visits, the service has been greatly lacking. Everyone is very nice, but it just takes forever. We had to ask three times and it took a half hour to get a glass of water. It is pretty expensive as well, so it is frustrating when you are paying almost $20 for grilled fajitas to have it take so long.

“Great food but way too loud”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

I have given this restaurant three tries. The food is great. But you can't hear the person sitting next to you. The owner comes to the table & you tell her that. She does nothing. What is so hard about adding some ceiling sound buffers? Won't be back or tell friends to go either.
