Mariachi El Bronx is the fifth studio album by the Los Angeles rock band The Bronx, released August 2, 2011 through ATO Records. It is the band's second album under their alter egos "Mariachi El Bronx", in which they play mariachi music in place of their usual hardcore punk and hard rock styles.

K. Ross Hoffman of Allmusic gave Mariachi El Bronx four and a half stars out of five, saying that "If there was any doubt that the gringo Angeleno hardcore punks in The Bronx were dead serious about their Mexican folk alter-ego ... the outfit's second album offers ironclad reassurance that this is no novelty act." He remarked that the album was a "significant improvement" over the band's 2009 mariachi album "in almost every respect: both the production and the performances are notably crisper and punchier; the arrangements are richer and more complex, full of swirling, soaring strings; the stylistic range is successfully broadened (to emcompass cumbia, norteño and bolero), and the passion and fire on display are simply undeniable. And the songs, in particular, are uniformly strong and memorable".
