I've been a frequent customer and I can say it's consistent. My go to is chicken or shrimp fajita nachos. Their prices are good and the service is always friendly

The majority of the food all tastes the same, with the same sauce on top. Service ok, and appears clean. Great margaritas. Much better mexican restaurants elsewhere.

Very good authentic Mexican food. This is our favorite place to eat at least once a week. Capable of serving large parties too.

We went to this restaurant upon a recommendation from a friend. We went in the late evening. The staff were polite although a bit inattentive. We all ordered something different. I ordered a vegetarian plate: the best part were the beans, very tasty in my burrito; the bad was that there wasn't a scrap of vegetable on the plate, no... More

We have been to El Mezcal Mexican Restaurant numerous times. The food has always been very good and the servers are friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. It's family friendly and casual.

El Mezcal is authentic Mexican food. The food and drinks are very tastey. The service is good. Their food comes very hot. Salsa and chips are refreshed as needed.

I really enjoy eating here. The food is good-love the atmosphere as well. The service has always been great and enjoy being able to sit outside as well. It's a nice place to go for quiet dinner or bigger groups also. A good value for your buck and good margaritas!

We bring our team here at the end of the event season and I always order the chicken enchiladas ala carte. The iced tea is great, huge glasses, plentiful chips and salsa. Lots of space for big groups and they can handle large orders.
