My husband and I love El Mariachi's lunch specials. You get tons of freshly made food, for a super cheap price. Service is quick and the salsa is delicious. This is definitely our "go to" Mexican restaurant in the Blacksburg/Christiansburg area.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. We enjoyed margaritas before eating. We didn't feel rushed to hurry up and leave. The atmosphere was nice.

Fajitas weren't quite sizzling but the aroma and flavor was very good. Not OVER spicy but just enough to be flavorful. Warm chips with fresh salsa. Good place to bring friends who want flavor without burning the heck out of their mouths.

We loved our dinner! Yummy chips and salsa are served while you decide on your meal choice. My husband had some sort of enchiladas and chimichanga platter. I am vegan and was happy to see a vegetarian section on their menu. The waiter easily adjusted...More
