Read many of the "amazing" reviews and decided to try this restaurant while in Olean for business. Average Mexican food. I got the chimichanga, which came with rice and refried beans (plus the complimentary chips and salsa). Chimichanga was good - not crispy, too much sauce, and the shredded beef should have been seasoned. Sides were good. Chips and salsa... More

My parents were here last year when they first opened. We came up here for Maple weekend and they insisted we try them out. The margaritas are an insane deal!!! Food comes out lightening quick with a great presentation. I ordered the chimichanga-- the cheese sauce is great. The menu is massive.

The food is always good, we have always had a good meal. The service is quick and the servers are always happy and helpful. Salsa and chips are always excellent. Yummy desserts if you can find room for one!

This was a landing spot after a long day of travel for me. The food was good (typical Mexican) and really speedy (which was important to me).

Nice place, nice staff but the food was only so so. My tostada had no flavor. I did like the chips and salsa.

My family and I found this place when visiting Olean this past summer. We've been to Olean 4 times since, and have eaten here every time. Great food, very good prices, and fast service. Bonus: all types of Margheritas are only $1.99!

We had lunch at El Mariachi's Mexican Restaurant, the food and service is outstanding. The atmosphere is perfect for families. Very friendly staff with Mexican back ground music. The lunch menu is priced right with a tremendous selection. This was are second visit, we will always dine at El Mariachis when we are visiting the area!

We could hardly move. This place serves the very best Mexican food this side of Mexico. Nice selection of beers to go with the food offerings. Would travel to this place again and again.
