Great tasting Mexican, priced right and the portions are huge. I had the chicken fajita's, yummy! I think I got 3 meals out of the portion.

The menu is huge and has a great selection for even children. When we are trying to decide where to go this is the first place our 8 year old suggests which she has been doing since she was 3. The fajita nachos are one of my favorites, but explore other options as well. The staff is great and very... More

We regularly dine at El Mezcal, a favorite for their expansive menu, outstanding service, and terrific value. Though the place is often hopping, service never seems to slow in this very dynamic restaurant. Sit back with a blended margarita and their fresh chips/salsa as you peruse the menu. House made queso dip is always a winner, with several entrees smothered... More

It is a nicer Mexican place. I ate here quite a bit while staying at a nearby hotel. My favorite thing to order is the Special Dinner.

We stopped here a little before 6:30 on a Saturday evening. The place looked really busy, but our party of four was seated immediately. We were quickly sevrved chips, salsa, and drinks. Our food came in about 6 minutes! Our waiter, Fermando, was very helpful and efficient. Food was delicious. So happy with this wonderful restaurant!

I have gone to several El Mezcal's in the central Wisconsin area and I have never been disapointed. They must be related as the menu seems the same. I will have to state that I am so well pleased by the shrimp chimmi that I have only tried a few of the lunch specials but regardless, I have always been... More

Service is really fast and friendly. Clean, nice tables and floors. Very comfortable eating here. High booths so you don't have to look at other people stuff their faces (awesomeness). Food is really great too! Excellent.

I've enjoyed the food several times. Never a bad meal. The food is fresh and served quickly. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. I've never had to wait for a table. It doesn't rate 5 stars as sometimes the bar area is quite loud, so it's probably not for a quiet, romantic date and occasionally the it takes times... More

Service was very good. There were quite a few people dining during a mid-afternoon visit. Chips and salsa were not that good. Meals were nothing special. We are not fans of this chain of Mexican restaurants, although, this one was better than Marshfield or Ladysmith's.
