I frequent El Mariachi, it’s my go to. I think the food is great and I have had good service as well. But this experience is the most appalling. I had an 8:30pm reservation for 5 people and was sat at 8:40pm. No biggie, absolutely fine. Within 3 minutes we received chips and salsa with water. Our first interaction with our server was not until 8:55pm. So naturally we were filling up on chips and water. When the server arrived she did not even greet my party. She asked if we would like something to drink. 3 out of 5 of us wanted margaritas so we ordered a pitcher. She did not ask how many glasses nor did she even allow anyone to speak as she walked away. 9:10pm comes and she delivers a pitcher of margaritas that had been sitting at the bar. (We were in clear view of the bar). She arrives with 5 glasses and fills them up and places a full glass of margarita in front of each one of us. Here’s the kicker... MY NEICE IS 15 YEARS OLD!!!! Our jaws dropped and the server goes “ are you ready to order?” We say yes and are about to tell her to take the glass from my NEICE but SHE WALKS AWAY!!!! Without even taking an order. Comes back 5 minutes later to grab our order. So it’s close to 917 before we even get an order in. At that point I was frustrated and appalled by her careless actions. I spoke to management and his solution was to give us more margaritas. A new pitcher and then he took the additional glass from the table. I understand that people are busy but there are rules, laws and guidelines and that situation was entirely illegal. It unfortunate because they serve underage children so as a parent or guardian you can not trust a local business. I think is the staff is overwhelmed then they should consider more support or stop seating until things are in order. Also, being busy is no excuse to serve a minor alcohol. I hope they revisit city and state laws and abide by them. Conduct training for staff. Ok I’m done. Thanks for reading!
No complaints here! They were ready for us when we got there, food and drinks were amazing, pretty great customer service, overall really satisfied with my experience!
The thing that got us in the door was your mimosa deal...and you guys did NOT disappoint!
Amazing service and food . Love the bottomless brunch
Drinks were soooooo good but food was eh
El Mariachi was SO fun! I went with a few girl friends and it was exactly what we were looking for. Margaritas were great and the food was delish. Carlos was our server and he put the cherry on top of a great dinning experience!
The brunch was well worth the price and offer for bottomless mimosas.
My family and I went for the brunch deal on Sunday and it was a great experience! We plan on going back next week (:
El Mariachi never disappoints for brunch! The food portions are massive , the customer service is fantastic and the pours don’t stop happening . The patio allowed for perfect social distancing and we had a personal heater for our table ! I had a guest in town and she loved it! Thanks as always 😊
Love this restaurant! Our service was phenomenal. Very patient waiter and was sure to keep us informed on food and drinks. Definitely recommend
Amazing food! Polite staff, very accommodating to our group as we had a stroller
Went here after a game of golf at the Waveland Golf Course. Nice patio for outdoor dining and friendly service. Extensive bar list and very good food!
Great time, great food, great service, great deals, but lots of bees
Lovely atmosphere but the service was definitely lacking. Everyone was kind, but we waited 20+ min for our first round of drinks and then only 2 of the 4 were brought and 1 of those was incorrect.
Then the 3rd drink came out and the final drink came another 10 minutes later.
We were not reapproached after entrees arrived except to give our bill.
However, The patio space is very nice.
Really good Mexican food and margaritas! We had a pitcher of Mango house margarita and also had a coconut pineapple margarita, both were really good. The chips that they give are different than most Mexican restaurant but they were great. Carne asada was cooked to perfection. No more table side guacamole, totally understandable but they should inform you when you order that. Service was still great by every staff member.
I’ve been here many times, all have been great experiences - this time was different. Short staffed, it took 30 minutes to get our first round of drinks, I normally have about 10 refills throughout the duration of my stay, I was given 3. The bees were absolutely terrible (5 were constantly at our table) I couldn’t even enjoy my brunch because they were so bad. We had to move inside because of the constant swarm of them. Hopefully next time will be better.
Took one hour to get our order in from the beginning of walking in. This was with the reservation. Never told patio is first come first serve. The server took a long time to get our order. We received the wrong drink. The patio was loud. The food was good but will never eat at the restaurant again.
Our server Aurora was AMAZING! This is my 2nd time here and I’m not disappointed.
Enjoyed the outdoor patio ambiance and music. The bottomless mimosa brunch is also a great deal! Food was ok and service as alright as well. Waitress could have made better rounds towards the end but understand if she was swamped with many tables.
Make sure you clarify what you're asking for. Some of the servers speak English as their second language (makes everything authentic), but because of the masks, there can be misunderstandings. We asked for pineapple margaritas, but got regular and it was not offered to switch it. Also, I had asked specifically what was in the burrito I ordered, but it came with other things. Again, I think it was just a misunderstanding in communication. We will definitely go back!
The coconut RioGrande margarita tasted like lemon the food wasnt real Mexican it has a American twist to it but it felt good to get out during this pandemic
Very good food and drinks. Will definitely come again.
Service and food is always great. The social distancing and mask ordinance are being obliged and I felt very comfortable dining here as usual.
It was a lot of fun! There was a group of 8 in our party and even with the Covid restrictions they were able to accommodate us sitting in 2 groups of 4. We very much appreciated that! The music was a little too loud but other than that I would recommend checking it out. The brunch deal was so worth it and I’m sure we will be back again! Make a reservation!
Love El Mariachi! Never had a problem there. I’ve eaten on their patio three times but in the past week. It’s beautiful out there but I just wish they’d turn the music down a little bit. It’s very hard to hear the servers and other people in my own party.
Great outdoor seating, great consistent service, multiple options.
Excellent food, drinks and service as always.
While we reserved an outdoor seating they didn’t give us outdoor seating. The manager mentioned it s on first come first serve basis even if we reserved an outdoor seating Time slot. There were 3 open tables outside so not sure why they didn’t offer us. Manager asked us to wait for 30mins outside until table is available. We went to order some drinks and then manager is like “ok we can give you a table”. Not sure why he hesitated to give the table at first. Service was extremely slow. Manager blamed open table for having the outdoor reservation option.
Was a great sunday funday brunch spot. Everyone had fun and enjoyed their food.
Delicious margaritas and we enjoyed the enchiladas. We were concerned about social distancing, but they put us on a 2nd story balcony with only three tables. It was a magical date night.
Short-staffed, took too long for service. Drinks were delicious, food was mostly good too. Would come back for the drinks.
Will be great once the new windows are in. Eating great food in a construction zone now.
Aurora was amazing!
Service was incredible!
Food was great!
Bottomless mimosas are always a plus!!!
They weren’t very busy and our food took a very long time to come out. We felt like an after thought.
It is good but needs some help. The restaurant is nice but the service lacked a lot and was not very good. No follow up.
I wasn't crazy about the food, it tastes like tex- mex, and not authentic Mexican cuisine, the margaritas weren't that great, it was so sweet you couldn't enjoy the Margarita, too much syrup, not a fan.
I love this place! Great value for bottomless mimosa brunch and the wait staff is very friendly and attentive. Griselda was a great server. Chips and salsa are amazing too!
This is my favorite mimosa brunch place. Great food and great pours.
My favorite brunch in the city!!!
