We went to Mariachi restaurant in Metuchen last weekend for a family lunch. The food was quite good and the prices reasonable, the reason I would go there again. Since the weather was not great, and there were very few other customers in the restaurant. Still, the service was quite poor. We literally had to go and call the server to come take our orders. Maybe this was an exception, but certainly detracted from our experience.

Great for big groups, especially on a weeknight! Plus for being BYOB! Beautiful decor & the general consensus was that we enjoyed our food. The chips & salsa & the Fiesta Platter of nachos were the big raves! :) Also really enjoyed the Peach sorbet! Servers are a bit timid, but they are nice. Will probably return :)

We haven’t dined here in several years. Thought we’d give it a try again. Service was good and restaurant is gaily decorated. Mixed results with the meal. Tilapia was flavorful. Chicken mole not as good. The sauce was ok bit the thinly pounded chicken was over cooked /dry.

Service and food was excellent! Would definitely go back. Brought a warm bottle of Sangria from liquor stop next door. They put it in a pitcher of ice with diced up fruit...what great customer service! I saw the table next to us with Margarita’s ....u bring the tequila and they’ll do the rest 👍🏻!!! That’s awesome!

there was only one person to answer the phone, seat people and serve and make the guacamole. the meat in all the tacos was very old and hard. It had to be left over from the day before and then microwaved. it is such a shame. we used to like the place but will not return.

I like the ambiance of this restaurant and staffs were all smiling. The food arrived just about time and came very very hot and the plate as well. It tends to be my food becomes dry, looks like it stayed in the oven for awhile. I ordered “Combination” with chorizo as my choice of meat. I find it very salty. I thought its only my food but when I tasted my partner’s food, which was beef, it tasted salty as well. But I don’t mind to come back and try their other food.

Although the atmosphere was fun, the initial service was slow. The food arrived cold and the quality was mediocre at best.

Disappointing. Was expecting celebrating with family having a few margaritas but place doesn’t serve liquor. Prices were high for the type of food choices.

On a whim we decided to go for an early dinner. When we walked in we were quite surprised by how well the place was decorated -- a getaway feel for dinner. Menu selection was excellent and all 3 of us enjoyed our meal. No alcohol..but we will byob next time we go. Thank you for a great meal.

Made a reservation and they were totally unable to manage it. There was no front person to help with taking names or managing wait times. The food was mediocre at best. Two of the four meals came out incorrectly
Definitely do not recommend

Really nice Mexican restaurant, with outstanding decor. My In-laws were impressed with both the decor and the food. They are very critical of where they eat so the lack of complaints made my dining experience at this restaurant a blessing. The food is delicious although in my opinion, the portions are small. Overall the ambience, decor, service, and menu prices when combined made our dinning experience memorable. Definitely will dine again at Mariachi Mexican Restaurant.

Food was really good. But when I ordered a vegetarian taco the waiter said "why". I thought that was very inconsiderate.

I was looking for a restaurant for lunch before a show at the Forum Theater. I found this restaurant on Open Table and I was so pleasantly surprised. The food was absolutely delicious. It was so wonderful that I ordered mariscada ( which you typically do not find in a Mexican Restaurant) as a take-out to bring home to my husband who loved it!
