    Food was delicious. Service was terrific even with some big tables. Much improved since it first opened. The decor, and especially the chairs, are very special.

    Authentic Mexican food and great service.

    Great food with a great atmosphere. Go just to see the chairs, which are little mosaics, but stay for the food.

    I have been in this place 3 times and I must admit their food is fresh, nice atmosphere and the people are very friendly. My wife loves this place.

    Went here for my friends birthday. The decor sold me! Seats are comfy. It's byob. We bought in sangria. The food was excellent. Service was fast and the staff was friendly. If you order guacamole, they make it right in front of you. I order the combination platter. Loved every minute of it!!! For dessert, try the churros.

  • *****

    BYOB which is always great but the food was terrific. Shrimp tacos are my go to. The service has gotten better since they first opened and are a real staple now being a year in Metuchen. Worth the visit.

    Awesome atmosphere! Feels like an authentic taqueria on the side of the road in Mexico. Love the furniture, music, food and the staff was attentive and so nice! We can't wait to come back again!

    Came here for a celebratory dinner on a Friday, SO had made a reservation through Yelp just in case. It was pretty empty around 6:00 but people started rolling in around 7. The hostess was friendly and so were the waitresses/waiters. Based on my experience, I think they need to train their wait staff a bit more because there seemed to be a lack of communication/coordination (we had 3 different people try to take our order when it was already taken). One of the waitresses walked by our table often but never noticed that we needed refills (the manager(?) eventually noticed)--at the time we were one of only four tables seated. We started off with the guacamole which was made tableside by a nice gentleman. We ordered one of each type of taco to try--I liked the fish one the best; I had the pork chop while my SO had a mixed seafood dish. Prices were reasonable and portions were on par with other Mexican restaurants. Took off one star for service and for getting part of my order wrong. Otherwise, I look forward to eating here again!

    This is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever experienced in New Jersey. The menu goes way beyond the standard Tex-Mex fare with some traditional regional Mexican seafood, beef, pork and chicken offerings. Everything we tried, from appetizer to dessert, was fresh, well-prepared and delicious. Service couldn't have been better. Metuchen is a little town with a big reputation for great restaurants, and Mariachi is a welcomed addition that really holds its own. My hat's off to the owners and staff. What a wonderful dinner!

    We visited here after walking away from a 1+ hour wait at Jose Tejas, and I don't think I'm ever going anywhere for my Mexican fix again. I had the pork chops, perfecto!

    Service is first rate and food is outrageous, churros are a must have finale!

  • *****

  • *****

    great food + prices, great for lunch also

  • *****

    The most yummiest Mexican food ever! Amazing staff, REALLY good food, beautifully decorated and presented.. definitely will be coming back!!

  • *****

    I went on a Sunday evening and it was not too packed but not empty either. We were quickly seated and our waiter was very attentive.

    Started off with guacamole, which is made right in front of you, definitely recommend. No need to ask for more chips either bc they will bring them right out. I had the crispy tacos with shredded chicken and accompanied by rice and refried beans, muy deliciosa! Our waiter offered us dessert, but we were so full we had to sadly pass.

    Will definitely come back again. Remember to bring a bottle of your favorite wine or cerveza!

    Great location. Great food, loved the guac. The place is really cute. We'll def be back.

  • *****

    Service was great! We had the nachos for appetizer, he had the fajitas mariachi and I had the combo.. so delicious... we are coming back..

  • *****

    Wow! What a charming place. Each staff member seem to smile the entire evening. I felt so welcome. The murals and unique folk art chairs are delightful. I wanted to examine each chair, but restrained myself. I was entranced before I had my first bite. Since Mariachi is a BYOB restaurant, my partner and I brought our own bottle of tequila. Our server took it to the kitchen and returned with two perfect Margaritas. I had a third before I left. We ordered and shared the fish chimichanga and quesadilla. Both were delicious. The generous portions allowed us to feast again the next day. I can't wait to return with a larger group to try more of their menu and share this find. Terrific food; Terrific price-point; Terrific place.

    Yummy maxican food love it

  • *****

    Great atmosphere. Good portions. Byob with multiple liquor stores within walking distance. The guacamole is the best I've had outside of Mexico. Excluding a few bottles of wine, I just spent 100 bucks for 5 adults and 3 kids. You simply can't beat that.

  • *****

    Great food, fair prices, and excellent service. Mole is wonderful and their food is very fresh! This will be our regular spot.

  • *****

    A nice addition to the scene in downtown Metuchen, Marachi brings the goods if you're looking for authentic Oaxacan fare. Spicy, Tex-Mex it isn't, but the entrees are fresh and well-prepared. Service was fast and efficient.

  • *****

    Great food. Nice atmosphere.

  • *****

    This restaurant has very good food. The staff was sweet and courteous. The decor is perfect. The wall murals were painted by their friend. It is "Authentic" Mexican not Tex -Mex. I enjoyed it and will most certainly go back again. I had the steak tacos and a side of Guacomole.
