Best guacamole I've ever had!

I've never liked Mexican food before (I'm a total wimp when it comes to spicy food), so when my fiance and I checked out El Mariachi I thought I'd have to scour the menu to find food I might like. This place blew me away. First off, the decor is beautiful. A variety of nicely done paintings in various styles adorn the walls and set a nice atmosphere. The windows to the front are open-air which is nice for summer ... view more

Let's be honest--they've come a long way!

The bad reviews are all pretty old. The switch to the newer, MUCH larger restaurant brought with it some challenges--the kitchen, managers, and wait staff were not used to the sheer volume that they were bringing in, and the first few months (ok--maybe year) were tough.\r BUT...things have improved dramatically. The carne asada is amazing, particularly if you get it suizas style. The sopa azteca is to die for, an... view more

Authentic Mexican Food, Fast, Cozy, Best Customer Service, Amazing

I went to El Mariachi for a friends birthday party about 5 years ago and now I am a regular customer and they know me by name. I just LOVE their food, but most of all I love their service. The employees, waitstaff and cooks are all so personable. Their margaritas are great!!!!!!!!!!!! They make them PERFECT everytime. What I love about this restaurant is it's authenticity and culture of Mexico. It is AUTHENTIC Mexica... view more

terrible customer service

I've wanted to check out El Mariachi since they reopened in their new space. A small group of us went this weekend and were definitely happy with the food. The problem was with the margaritas. Since we were all drinking, we ordered a pitcher of premium margs for $33 a pitcher. Not a bad price -- but after two pitchers, none of us hardly had a buzz. It tasted like there was one shot of premium tequila in the pitcher. ... view more

BEST MEXICAN FOOD IV""E EVER HAD

This place was gorgeous....Outstanding decor.... It was 6 of us in our party and we all enjoyed our first visit to El Mariachi. the enchiladas, fajitas, carne asada, and combinations were all great. The food was both delicious and very presentable. We were celebrating my friends birthday and were surprised at the end of our meal when half of their staff came out singing happy birthday with a flaming flan. Very en... view more

3.5 stars would have been more accurate, but, I'll round up

It's a great addition to this neighborhood and I would expect your wait time to remain lengthy until more decent restaurants move to uptown. We ate early on a Saturday - 6:15 - and were seated immediately. By the time we left - 7:30 - the place was full. Even though there were 6 of us, it took too long to get our food. However, while waiting, we continuously had full drinks whether it be water, soda, margarita's,... view more

Not worth the wait for the big move up the street

Living in the neighborhood, we walked by the new space for over a year before El Mariachi finally moved up the street. And we were VERY anxious -- we need more restaurants in this area. So -- you can see it coming, can't you? -- we were really disappointed when we finally got to try the place. The decor is fine, music's a bit loud, but the staff was wonderful. Unfortunately, that was it. The margaritas were boring (I... view more

Best Mexican Food in Chicago

Since moving from New Mexico, I have yet to discover a better Mexican Restuarant. The staff is friendly, the salsa hot and the food is incredible. The chile rellanos are the best I've had in a long time. The combo plates will stuff you silly. The staff always seems very happy to see us...even w/ a three yr old. Try the guac.

Hole in the Wall!!!!!

This is your typical hole in the wall Mexican restaurant, that just happens to be the best one on the North side. The Margaritas and Guacamole are very good to start, the meals are awesome. You have to try a Chimichanga. There are a lot of combo plates so you can try a lot of different things. One thing to remember, bring your appetite.
