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.

good Mexican food but the service is the best! Have visited restaurant a couple of times & always enjoyed it - recently had house guests who were looking for a place to go for lunch (while I was at work) and I recommended El Mezcal and they loved it!!!!

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

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!

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
