Always great service, reasonably prices

We visit every few months, and like to try different dishes. Chips and salsa are always a favorite. My son usually gets some type of seafood dish, and has yet to be disappointed. Service is excellent.

Enjoyed a meal with family at El Mezcal recently. The Combo meals are a good value - and there are over 15 of them to choose from! Service is excellent, and the chips and salsa are delicious. The 3 of us split a dessert - a cheesecake chimichanga. It was AMAZING!!!

There aren't a lot of great Mexican restaurants in the area so I'm happy to at least have a reliable one. I haven't had the pleasure of dining in the restaurant but have ordered carry out a few different times. I try to pick something different every visit. My boyfriend always chooses tacos (very adventurous) with chips, salsa, and guacamole.... More

Impressed with their Friday Fish Fry. Plenty of food, $7.99 for a basic ff of 3 large pieces of fried cod, seasoned fries & a side salad. Carry out orders also include chips and salsa. Made fresh to order. No potato pancakes, but, besides this polak missing that, very good!!!

Stopped by on a Friday night. To our surprise, they had a fish fry in addition to seafood specials and the regular menu. The restaurant was doing a brisk business, but service was prompt and attentive. Our chips and salsa never ran out, and refills on soft drinks were quick. Food was delicious - we enjoyed our fish fry (3... More

We visit El Mezcal at least once a month. The menu is quite extensive with lots of variety. The food has consistently been very good and plentiful. The service is always attentive and cordial. We have never been disappointed.

A small restaurant with a big menu. We go often for lunch, about twice a month and have never been dissatisfied. To name a few recommendations... steak private, steak burrito with their signature cheese sauce, shrimp fajitas.

The staff at El Mexcal was very accommodating and the restaurant is comfortable, but that is about it. The food we had on our recent visit (tacos, chips/salsa, burritos, fajitas) were good, but lacked flavor. You get a choice of meats, but they dominate the plates. I personally prefer more diced tomatoes, lettuce, olives, etc. If you are near Waterford... More

I have thoroughly enjoyed the lunch menu at El Mezcal - I have visited on many occasions. You start out your experience here with chips and a cup of red salsa.The Pollo Mexicano is grilled chicken topped with onions and jalapenos, and is served with your choice of tortilla, rice and beans. The Steak Picante is grilled steak, tomatoes, onions,... More
