“No no no.”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Salsa is out of a jar. Beans out of a can. Margaritas from a mix. Horchata overly sweet and tasted like a mix.

Avocados were fresh, lime garnish was fresh.

Place was empty.

“Excellent authentic Mexican.”
Reviewed 18 March 2013 via mobile

So kind, the waiter gave me free horchatta. The soup, chimichanga and and enchilada were all exceptional.

“Good value meal!”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

Very nice and clean restaurant. My husband and and I felt it was a great value for the meal. Food was tasty and the waiter was attentive to our needs. They will probably need to consider more waiters during busier periods, but at no time were we not waited upon. I've been to restaurants with overload of staff and not received the service this one waiter provided. The food was very good, could have had a bit more bite to it, but we spiced it up with salsa and hot sauce!

“It tries, I know it does, but ultimately a fail...”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

After a few nights in a small, isolated beach town, one can get a hankering for something other than seafood. Cannon Beach has a number of good choices including Fultano's for pizza and Bill's Tavern for sandwiches. But it has lacked a Mexican restaurant until recently.

El Mariachi is a pleasant enough place but the very common type of tourist Mexican with runny refried beans and mushy corn tortillas. Everything runs together on a extremely hot plate.

It's not awful. It's just mediocre. The next time I'm after Mexican when I'm in Cannon Beach, I'll drive up to The Stand in Seaside.

Also, the night we were there, only one guy was waiting tables so the waits were long and several people waiting for a table gave up and left.

“Plan 'B' turned our good”
Reviewed 5 December 2012

Planned to go to Castaway Tini Tiki Hut based on Tripadvisor reviews. I missed that they are closed on Tuesdays (at least in December) Since we were on foot, and it was beginning to rain, we ducked into El Mariachi Loco as Plan B since is it close to the first restaurant. Sometimes 2nd choice turns out great. Shared to Family Fajitas for two with hubby. Food was piping hot, well seasoned, and plenty of it. Would go back again. Good value for the money.
