We ate here because it was within walking distance of our hotel. I’ve had better margaritas. I had the Quesadilla Texana which is basically a Bbq chicken quesadilla. It was very saucy. It was served with good sized portions of sour cream and guacamole. The...More

I have been eating here for years. They have some of the best chiles rellenos around with their delicious mole` sauce. Warm lighting, tasty margaritas, and large draft beers make El Mariachi a favorite.

I had the chicken quesadilla to go with a side of rice and beans. The food was great and packaged great for travel. Chips were just ok but overall it was a good experience. Worth a visit.
