“Had a great experience at Mariano's while I was in Dallas for the weekend! I had no issues getting a parking spot and was promptly seated. My friend tried their margarita and said it was amazing- our waitress made a lot of great recommendations and seemed to appear right as we needed her. Food portions were huge- and I was shocked at how fast we got our food after ordering. This place is a well-oiled machine, ha-ha. Also really recommend the queso + salsa. They had two types of salsas, both were good and completely different from one another (think one being more watery/hot and the other more chunky and medium heat). Honestly can't say enough good things about this place, it had a good interior dining atmosphere and seemed to be managed incredibly well.“

“A Special Birthday Celebration of a Friend brought me back!! We had 1 Waiter but he was great, friendly, pleasurable, and attentive as he took all 14 individual orders. We were comfortably seated at two large tables, side by side. I ordered the Mariscada Soup, full of Seafood - shrimp, red snapper, half of a lobster tail, muscles, scallops, carrots, potatoes, leafy greens. A deliciously great soup!Parking: This Restaurant is in "Restaurant City" so all these establishments share a large lot, including the Movie Theatre. Start looking at the Restaurant door for a space you may get Lucky. If not work your way from close to out.Kid-friendliness: We've taken ours, but better suited for Adults.Wheelchair accessibility: Yes, accommodation are made“

“Some of the best local cuisine we had on our trip. The service was exceptional and I could not believe how fast they had the orders out even though they were very busy! Their queso is absolutely out of this world and their steak burrito is phenomenal! The cheese enchiladas were good as well and they blended two different red sauces on it and it was very good but not the best I've had.Parking: BIG parking lot but very busy.“

“I judge Mexican restaurants on their rice and beans, then by the salsa. They are on point in all three. Their carnitas tacos are the best around. I usually am there for lunch and get the Mr. Mark's plate on the lunch menu. It's a cheese enchilada and a tamale. Get a carnitas taco on the side. I rarely give a 5 star review, but it is well deserved here.“

“Based on my “the best Mexican restaurants have Mexican names” theory, I decided to have lunch here. I was a little surprised to see only one couple dining but I wanted to give them a chance.The staff was attentive and I was seated immediate. Chips and salsa soon arrived. The salads was very tasty but was not hot.I ordered the 3 street tacos plate with rice and beans. I would have liked to see more meat in the tacos. The food was good and I cleaned my plate.The waitress had brought out two salsas in squeeze bottles but they were watered down and were not good.The food was good and I would return to try something else.“

“Ordered the bacon cheese egg & potato burrito but they forgot the potato, can’t complain though, it was so delicious!! The green sauce was like no other I’ve ever had, amazing! I’m Mexican & know what’s good Mexican flavor, this place is it! The physical place isn’t amazing but the food quality very much makes up for it. It’s in a gas station fyi but that doesn’t even matter since nicer places can lack flavor in any given day. Highly recommend these people. Oh & my first bite into the burrito told me everything, so let this review tell you everything. Before I ordered I asked a couple that was a return customer from the day before & I asked them what they recommended, they said the chorizo burrito as well so be confident to try that“
