Standard Mexican, large portions, nice folks

This restaurant is tucked in at the end of a strip mall off of Highway 164, so it is easy to miss. If you like typical Mexican food and lots of it, El Mezcal fits the bill. They have a large menu with plenty of choices, better-than-average salsa, reasonable prices, a good amount of food on your... read more

We went for lunch on Sweetest Day. The restaurant wasn't crowded. We were served chips and salsa, and asked for our beverage selections. I had horchata, spouse had Coke. We ordered off the Combos menu - particularly, Combo #4 - 2 tacos, chile con queso, and an enchilada with the meat of your choice (chicken is our favorite). We had... More

I am from Denver, and love Mexican food. This was NOT Mexican food!!!! I ordered enchiladas which had some kind of white sauce (I guess that it was cheese, being in WI), drizzled over the platter. I guess that I am used to red sauce or pork green chili smothered over my Mexican food. I had a combo of four... More

I think some of the food here is good. The fiesta taco salad, the mini chimi's and the giant burrito. Anything you order with steak in it is not great. The steak they use is really cheap and chewy. It seems like they keep taking the same ingredients and remixing them for different menu items. The margaritas, however, are excellent!!

I just got food from this place. My husband and I have lived in Waterford for 5 years and I just found this place existed. I have never had such terrible Mexican food in my life. The meat was like dog food. I will stick with my gut from now on and go to places I know that serve actual... More

I go here at least once a month and have never been disappointed. Their service is excellent, the prices very reasonable (especially the lunch specials) and the food comes out quickly and tasty. I typically order something different every time, so I can't necessarily make a recommendation on a particular dish. Everything is good.

Love to go here! Best Poblano peppers I have had! We've always had great food and service. Drinks are great too. Love the Mango Margaritas!

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
