    Well...what makes it so special is that I AM THE OWNER OF THE PLACE... LOL ! But, hey , wait... I can describe it objectively and know what people think from their feedback. There aren't too many mexican restaurants in Sao Paulo and Paulistanos love mexican food . The food is typical Tex-Mex but El Mariachi is not a fast food joint... It's rather cozy, cantina style with framed pictures on the walls and paintings of mexican motifs and daily live mariachi music in the evening when you can order a la carte.... For lunch it's either a buffet "by weight" (Mon-Fri, except holidays) where you pay according to how much you shoved on your plate or on Sat. , Sun. and holidays a full mexican buffet , eat all you want for a fixed price.... There's also a big screen that comes down from the ceiling where old mexican films and shows of mexican artists are projected... and three gigantic paper maché mariachis on a balcony above you making sure you guys really eat all your tacos like good kids....

    Well , absolutely no kidding , I get feedback from 3 or 4 different sources and about 94 % is absolutely positive.... those 6 % more or less are those we just couldn't make happy , no matter what....

    Favorite Dish: I love fajitas and tacos but don't care myself to much for dishes with beans because they're a bit heavy at night. All recipes are from my ex-wife whose baby this restaurant is after all..... she's from Los Angeles and "learned" to cook mexican by looking over the shoulder of the cooking nanny of her nieces and nephews who always spent summers in Cabo San Lucas. So you can count on some original recipes which Edilson , our cook refined and guards as if top secret.... Among them , of course , burritos , nachos , flautas , chili con carne....

    So many1 The food is delicious, the portions are big, the price is fair! It's a very charming ambiance, the owners are wonderful hosts. Live music every night and they stay open till the last client is there - no frowny faces!

    Favorite Dish: Everything! I love tex-mex!
