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

This is a great place for friends/family to gather for Mexican eats. The atmosphere is very casual. The waitstaff is eager to bring you complimentary chips/salsa while you browse their extensive menu for just the right dish. No matter what you choose, you will get plenty of it! Go for dinner and you will have tomorrow's lunch too. These are... More

El Mezcal has great burritos and delicious margaritas! Maybe they aren't authentic but it was definitely worth the visit! I would gladly go back!

the food was very tasty although I wouldn't consider it authentic, it is more Tex-Mex style. It was still good. The place is nice and with a Hacienda style. loved it. no complaints. would I go back? Yes. absolutely.

If you're coming here for Mexican, it is most likely because you live near the restaurant. To get good authentic Mexican food, you should make the trip to Milwaukee (or even Waukesha). I think this place is just your average, good enough Mexican food if you're in the mood for Mexican and don't want to drive far from home .... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. My husband and I were craving our usual mexican dishes, (enchilada's tacos etc) which we ordered and were happy with. Our son ordered the shrimp and tilapia dish, it was amazing! The fish was cooked to perfection, and the flavor was unbelievable. We will definitely go back soon. Staff were very... More

El Mezcal is a restaurant we visit often, at least a few times a month. Their lunches are a great value. The owner & wait staff are beyond nice. But the very best thing about El Mezcal is the food. The shredded pork tacos are to die for & I always live their chicken chimichangas.

Food is good, unique to some degree for a Mexican American restaurant.. Great service though and plenty of parking. The Bar stools are way too high and really uncomfortable. Ambiance could use some work too, feels cold but I guess in a "strip mall" what do you expect. But for what its worth, it is a good place to go... More

El Mezcal has become our favorite Mexican Restaurant in the area. This place has great food! I have never been disappointed! We have taken several family members and friends to El Mezcal and everyone has loved it. The menu is large and there are some unique dishes. Any shrimp dish you get will be outstanding. The only thing this restaurant... More
