My husband and I ate at El Mezcal when in town for a business trip. Even though I have dietary considerations the waitress was very accommodating and both my husband and I were extremely pleased with our fajitas. The guacamole was excellent, by the way. My husband said he especially likes their salsa. We will definitely eat there again.

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.

This place has the best Mexican food in town. I've heard excellent drinks but kinda pricy for my budget so I've not had one yet. Everything I've tried was good (except one time I ordered something I did not know was gonna have a big jalapeno pepper stuffed inside ... couldn't eat that). Plenty of seating. 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.
