I have loved Mariachi for years! Gina makes the BEST red chile in town. When I was pregnant with youngest (now almost 15 years old) I would crave the red chile every day. Great New Mexican comfort food.

Have eaten here a number of times. The service is wonderful; everyone, it seems, is on a first-name basis. We had them cater dinner for 100 people. Our houseguests were most pleased with the food as were we. It's nothing fancy inside but does have wonderful art on the walls.

Excellent food, but for sure the Indian taco. Fresh whole beans, tasty fried bread (not greasy), with red chili, ground beef and cheese. Enchilada was really good, corn tortilla flavor reminded me of my grandma Silva's, completed with cheese, red chili and a traditional egg over medium.

I brought in my family (wife and 4 children). The waitress - an older woman - was rude and acted angry to my children. One child asked if could get a taco plate without beans - and she bit his head off and said no. One child asked what sort of sodas they offered, she looked at him like he... More

The other reviews here I cannot deny are true for them and I clearly understand where they are coming from, but for my sense of warped humor and friends that go we call this place the "Taco Nazi".....Anytime I"m in the Duke city I stop here for the good food and abuse.....until check out when the lady is very nice..ie...

I have never been less willing to go back to a place in my life. It was possibly the Rudest service I have experienced. DO NOT GO THERE!

We've tried El Mariachi Mexican Restaurant on Juan Tabo three times in the past 18 months. Our first experience left us with mixed emotions...the little strip-mall restaurant is pretty sparcely decorated, the food was very good, but not that large in quantity, and the service was terrible. Well, I should say the waitress (an owner I believe) had a "take... More
