We come here every year when visiting family in Norfolk. We continue to come back based on the quality of the food and drink. Our server was a bit off this year compared to other visits but, it is what it is. The food is what keeps us coming back. It didn't disappoint this year either. The taco salad is... More

I frequent El Mezcal with my fiance and parents. It's a great place to unwind after a hard day with the free chips and salsa and sip on margaritas! The food is amazing and the queso dip is fabulous!

I was visiting Norfolk for the first time. I love Mexican food so thought I would try El Mezcal. What a surprise. Not only was it great, it may have been the best I ever tasted. My entire family thought it was great and hated to leave.

Always clean - I've... More

My friend and I decided to go down to Norfolk to get some lunch. We chose El Mezcal because the food is always good. Got the enchiladas supremas- first time having it and it was very good. Even had leftovers for the next day's meal.

If you are looking for all the chips and salsa you can eat while waiting for your food this is the place to go. Their lunch is normally pretty quick if there is not a lot of people already there. Their food is good and they have daily specials.
