“Treated Like Family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We love this restaurant as we are always treated like family. The food is good and they are always willing to make something different than the menu and the way we like it. Flor is about the sweetest and best waitress we've ever had the pleasure of tipping! Also Junior is an amazing bartender!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Maybe I've been spoiled by my hometown Mexican restaurant and was expecting too much. The food was much to bland for me. The chimichanga was filled with stringy pot roast and potatoes. That may have been good if I was looking for pot roast, but.... And I've never heard of roasted potatoes in Chimichangas. At least one half of the chimichanga was filled with roasted potatoes. The fajitas were a little better. The taco was the best thing on the table. I would stick with tacos if I went again.
On the positive side, the staff was friendly and attentive, even if they did overcharge on the first bill and had to readjust.

We had breakfast here our first day. It was very good. We had the dinner special another night and was not disapointed! Would return.

“Poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We came to Mariachi's for Cinco de Mayo. The drinks and food were OK, but the service was terrible. The restaurant was not that busy when we were there and our server seemed to be in a bad mood and upset with us from the beginning. We had to ask several times for our bill, and saw our server chatting with friends while we were waiting. She never offered an apology for such poor service. I would not recommend this restaurant and will not return.
