Service has always been quick and friendly. Food prices are fair, and portions are generous. Been to El Mezcal in Point many times. Is much more efficient and tasty than the one in WI Rapids.

This is mine and my boyfriend's favorite restaurant. The food is always delicious, the servers are great, and the atmposhere is nice. They have a huge menu with a good number of vegeterian selections. El Mezcal rocks!

This place cannot be beat! No matter what you order, you will not be disappointed. They serve nacho chips & salsa to you as soon as you're seated. We always order the nachos with cheese--chips with white melted cheese smothered all over them--can't get enough! My husband likes to try different things each time but I stick with the chicken chimichanga...absolutely amazing! I will NEVER order anything else because I know nothing could beat this for me. lol Their margharita's are good as well. Reasonably priced too. This is a must try for everyone!

Stevens Point, located in central Wisconsin, is not exactly the most ethnically diverse city, so finding a good ethnic food restaurant is often times a challenge. El Mezcal, however, is definitely a gem in Stevens Point. From the first time I ever ate at El Mez, to the most recent time (today!) I have yet to have a bad experience. They have some really great specials during their lunch hour, and the dinner pricing is very very reasonable. The atmosphere is always lively when you arrive - whether its during lunch or dinner. El Mez is always full during lunch hours and weekend evenings - that's gotta say something!

The service is really fast - you walk in, get seated as soon as a table opens up, and are served with chips and salsa. Within just a few minutes, the server comes by to take your drink order and returns right away, so that you have the chance to order your food if you already know what you want. Otherwise, you can enjoy the chips and salsa as you peruse through their fairly extensive menu. All of the servers I've had are very kind, polite, accommodating, and have great smiles!

They have chicken, seafood, beef, and vegetarian options. One of my personal favorites to order is the quesadilla fajita or one of their burritos. With any item on the menu, the flavors are great, and if you like spicy, you can definitely have it your way. The portion size is HUGE for the price you pay. Honestly, for less than $10, you basically get two meals from your one order. You definitely get your money's worth of food. The only desserts I've eaten at El Mez are flan and the deep fried ice cream. I must say, I have a soft spot for flan and it is just fantastic here.

Overall, you should definitely eat here if you are in Stevens Point! It is cost-efficient, great tasting, large-sized portions of food. The atmosphere is great and family friendly. You won't be disappointed!
