Wonderful Mexican family restaurant! Good food: fresh and made in house. Excellent value. Wonderful owner and staff: friendly, fast, and very kind. They never hesitate to do anything possible to make their guests dining experience a happy one. Can't say enough good things about this local gem!

We had dinner at El Mariachi for $31 plus tip. That was a large fajita platter, carne asada platter and a beer. Plus good salsa and chips before hand. Everything was good and, for the price, an excellent value. Good service and very quick.

This is our go to place for great Mexican food. The chips and homemade salsa are delicious and plentiful. There is a separate children's menu that offer both american and Mexican choices. The tacos, tamales, quesadillas are always a hit. The fajita meal is enough for too. Friendly and quick service.

The food was great. The service was amazing. Definitely worth the stop if your in the area. The only thing I didn't like was the salsa. It had a lot of onions and I'm not a fan of onions. Other than that everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was great!

I absolutely LOVE El Mariachi - it's my favorite Mexican restaurant. Their agave margaritas are great. They have THE BEST guacamole - hands down. I've seen people bring actual buckets in on July 4th to have them fill it with their guacamole for take out. I always order the chicken & steak combination fajitas. I have celiac disease and I...

Loved the fresh salsa, a lot like a pico de gallo. My daughter loved the chicken tacos. Fajitas and burrito were very good. Worth a repeat next time we're in Novi.

And pretty basic food. The atmosphere is good and the wait staff is efficient and knows the menu and is quick to offer a suggestion in case you're stumped on what to get

We have found our "go to" restaurant for Mexican food. The flavor of the food was very good and the side dishes, unlike other Mexican restaurants, did not taste like an afterthought. Everything was very good and tasted very fresh. The service was fast,also. It wasn't too loud to talk, good music played in the background, and the paintings on... More
