At there for the second time Sunday. Fantastic!
But I will say this, that place makes me feel rushed. They act as if they want you to just eat and get out, which I understand but geesh. They also are very bad about picking up dirty plates.
Hey El Mariachi, I love you guys, you have fabulous food, but letting people linger over drinks for more than 120 seconds means they will probably order more.
Also, I do not like eating dessert in front of dirty plates. I'm a very good tipper but if it happens again, I won't be, not there anyway.
But the food is so good I can overlook these small imperfections. But no more fat tips if I sit in front of dirty dishes. Also, you need to adjust the chips and salsa. You gave me way too much both times and it's wasteful, while the people next to me (fat mom, fat dad and three fat kids) ordered more, of course.
You guys are fabulous but if you work out the kinks, you could be stellar. Thanks, I love El Mariachi!

I've eaten there several times and for the most times it was great.
You must try the pork; a really great meal.

However; the Chili Rellenos are a joke.

this above all is my favorite Mexican dish; the one there however, is a flat out JOKE!

You get a plate full of white cheese with (if you are lucky) 2 very small pieces of pepper.

Anyone who knows food, knows that a chili relleno is a pepper that is stuffed with those same ingredients.
Not some made up variation pretending to be the real deal.

I will surely go back; but I wanted to let others know what they will be getting if they order the same dish from the menu.

The margaritas are excellent - if they have them. I was there one day and they were out of margaritas AND Dos Eques. But I will not hold that against them. I've found that to be common in businesses in Hinton.

The Market is often out of wine, the Chestnut is often out of menu items too and you go in a Mexican restaurant that's out of margaritas.

Hinton businesses have always been like that for some reason. And they keep half assed hours too. Sometimes you go and they're open and sometimes they're closed and several of them close on Sunday. I mean, WTF? Weekends are just when the visitors are filling the town.

But the food at El Mariachi is bangin. I've eaten there several times.

I agree with most of what you said, but disagree with the unkind comments about the other diners. Must you be hurtful to them? Are you so perfect that comments could not be made about your appearance> Sometimes people look the way they do from bad experiences, medical conditions or from hurtful people like you.

I noted that a fat family sat next to me - and I mean fat, all of them, including the children, which is to me, a form of child neglect.

I'm personally sick of the obesity in this state and country. It's offensive. If that hurts your little feelings then tough tittie.

What's offensive is the obese and what they buy and what they eat. I see their carts in the grocery stores. I see their children. I was in Hinton Kroger one day and I heard this kid say "Mom, I don't want any doughnuts" and the mother said "then what the hell ya gonna eat for breakfast."

The mother was a fat pig and so was the poor child. I don't blame the children, I blame their awful parents.

Now an obese child raised by an obese parent is what' offensive.

Why? Because I take offense at obesity? You are clearly part of the problem. You are defending obesity and the obese because I'm guessing you and your children are obese.

It's not my problem that you are fat and that is offensive to society at large. That's your problem.

Obesity is not only unappealing and shows a lack of pride and discipline, it's unhealthy, expensive for the tax payers who pay the medical bills and generally looked down upon.

Those are the facts. Don't kill the messenger.

In a space of a few short papragraphs, you complained about the chips/salsa, your fellow diners, the drinks, etc. You, my child, are a moaner/groaner. Lighten up, if obesity your fight - go for it. Just remember, people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. What is your shortfall? Bet you won't answer that one, because you see nothing wrong with yourself - just the rest of the world.

You know lady, it's not my fault you're fat. If you are fine with being fat then that is your business and to hell with people like me. Right?

However, if, on the other hand, you are not fine with being fat, either lose weight or stop bitching because society does not condone obesity.

You cannot have it both ways.

I would bet you are one of those women who resent fashion models and claim they are bad for the self esteem of American women, blah, blah, blah. Hey, if you don't like being a Dove girl then do something about it but don't blame me, or society or fashion models.

As far as the subject at hand, I love El Mariachi and eat there every time I'm in town. I've spent a lot of money there.

If you like the restaurant so much, why all the complaining?

Just as I predicted, you didn't answer the question. I just don't like people taking their frustrations or whatever happened to them to make them unkind, out on other people just because they care to be cruel. You gain nothing and lose a lot.

BTW, I don't follow your logic, because I defend people, I don't like being a dove girl? This does not compute.

I have no idea what you are talking about. I observe that obesity is unappealing, unhealthy and not socially acceptable and you're point is .... what exactly? That only perfect people can point out those facts? Because if you want to know if I'm perfect, the answer is a big, negatory. I'm not perfect at all.

So, because I'm not perfect I cannot state the obvious? That obesity is disgusting and unhealthy and a bad reflection on a person?

You can sew my mouth shut if you want and you will not change those facts.

And yes, El Mariachi rushes diners. So? Next time, I will wait to order until I'm ready to eat. Problem solved. Most people don't know how to dine, they eat like hogs in the slop house. They demand the hugest possible portions in lightening speed time and El Mariachi fills that need so good for them.

That approach is not for me. So kill me.

I guess I just don't understand people who want to be cruel to others, nor what pleasure they get out of it. I bet you don't like mentally or physically challenged persons either?

So, we'll just leave it that you don't like fat people and I don't like cruel judgmental people. Actually, and I know you'll not agree with this, but we both lose. TTFN

Girl please. Quit playing the victim why don't you. I have had mentally ill people in my family and believe me, it's not something they choose in life and if they could cure themselves with a dirt diet they would. Same with the physically challenged who don't enjoy a healthy body. Unlike many fat people who ruin perfectly good bodies with bad diets, fast food and a lack of pride and discipline, the disabled often have no choice in the matter.

You should be ashamed to put yourself and other fat people in the same category as the physically and mentally challenged. How dare you.

If you don't like being fat, stop eating like a pig. Problem solved.

Too bad the answer is not as simple for the mentally ill and disabled. Talk about cruel and insensitive. Talk for five minutes to a person who's brain and soul and mind is on fire and have them tell you how they suffer and how society treats them and then tell them that you think that because you are fat, you suffer the same, yet all you need to is eat healthy to cure yourself.

And they will tell you to go to hell.

I'll give you credit for one thing, you don't know when to stop.

I did not ever say I was fat, that was your assumption.

I feel whatever people choose, or not choose, to be in life is their affair. It is not our job to tell them they are wrong or not up to our standards. It is, however, our job to make this world the best we can for everyone.

I assumed, wrong on my part, if you didn't like the way people looked, you would also have an aversion to challenged persons. Since you drew the sympanthy card, that no doubt is your true feeling.

If life were as simple as you suggest, the world would be a perfect place. You need a large dose of reality, "girl". Learn to help the world and not judge it. By the way your comments are being judged on this section, I would assume others feel the way I do.

I say again, TTFN!
