Reviewed 2 May 2013

The food was really good and the joint was jumpin'. The homemade chips and salsa were great. We will definitely go back.

“Great food, great service.”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Super, low-key, great food. Mariachi music some Saturdays, plus private rooms (tiny ones...how fun!)

“So Friendly and Delicious”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

We love Mariachi in Rockville and in Frederick but Mexican Cantina, all of the same family, has the broadest menu. Last night we had a small birthday for our grandaughter. The food was outstanding and the little Tres Leche cake with a candle thrilled her. Everyone in this restaurant is so friendly and helpful, and that is the way of the Mariachi restaurants all.

“Delicioso!”
Reviewed 14 November 2012 via mobile

We stopped here after a full day's hiking in the chilly weather, after having found it on the TripAdvisor.com.

This is a fairly expansive space with nice decor and very clean. There were very few patrons at the time of our visit.

The salsa is very good, not very spicy at all. My wife had spinach, cheese, and seafood enchiladas and I had chicken enchilada and tamale and a chile relleno. All of the entrees were very good. They have a good range of entrees from the usual Mexican standards and combinations as well as more unusual dishes. For dessert, we shared a flan which is offered here unlike a good number of other Mexican places. They also offer sopapilla as well as a few other dessert dishes.

This restaurant is more expensive than most standard Mexican places. Most entrees range from $11 to $17. Service was prompt and attentive.

We would return to this place.
