El Mezcal is a favorite for us. The service is outstanding and the food is excellent. The El Mezcal Especial Fajitas are among the best we have had anywhere. The margaritas are delicious and the beer cold. The staff are always friendly and welcoming.

El Mezcal is always a great place to eat! The prices are great and the atmosphere is fun. The portions are large but a perfect size to share. The service is excellent and the food comes quickly and is always hot.

My wife and I dine here at least once a month. The food is consistently great. The service is excellent. We have eaten in Mexico and the food at El Mezcal is just as good.

The service is always great. Fast service. We had the Shrimp Salad and my wife had a Chicken dish. Their chips and salsa are excellent.

We have come here several times with family and friends. The prices are very reasonable and the food is served quickly. Their food is probably the best Mexican food you will find unless you go to a big city. We have made this a regular place to eat.
