Deep fried tacos not too bad for delivery. Rice and beans were good. Guacamole was great and so were the chips. Won’t order enchilada again. Will try again!

We rate our Mexican restaurants by the quality of the chile rellenos and the tamales. Why I OK with the tamales (3/5 rating), the chile rellenos with GREEN (not red) sauce are over the top.

When you want good Mexican food, El Mezcal is the place to go! Service is quick and friendly. The menu is extensive and it is always hard to choose! The White Cheese Dip is to die for and the Margarita's are superb!

I used to love El Mezcal and it used to be THE Mexican place in town back in the day. Sad to say, times have changed. We ate lunch there this weekend. My food initially was ok, nothing great and nothing bad. The portions were...More
