Restaurante El Mariachi in Trenton's Chambersburg

Karla Cook of the NY Times reviewed the Restaurante El Mariachi in Trenton's Chambersburg section on two nights this past October. See

I wonder if she new her life was in danger just being in that neighborhood? There have been a number of shootings and stabbings in that immediate area within the past few months. It's a shame but Chambersburg is no longer the safe "Little Italy" with many great restaurants that it was years ago.

  1. I would agree with the review. I actually think the food at Taqueria El Mariachi (on Olden) is better. I adore their complimentary salsa and guacamole. I don't think either location makes the best pupusas in Trenton. I prefer Mi Tierra or Jireh better for pupusas, both make less greasy ones than El Mariachi's.
