Was in the mood for Mexican and a margarita to escape from the conference for awhile. Food came very fast, but taste was a little lacking. Service was good. Margaritas are always good.

I have been going to this restaurant for years, and they are the best in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. I would recommend this place first before any other Mexican place. Very clean, nice setting, and their food is superb.

We go to El Mezcal all the time. Tuesdays and Thursday are 2 for one margaritas and you sometimes have to wait a few minutes for a table. Always worth the wait. Order the fried ice cream with just honey and cinnamon, its out of this world.

I thought the food was good. It was not the best I ever had, but it was not the worst by far. Salsa was real good and chips were okay just a little over cooked. I had the pork tropical which was real good. I would go back.

My family visited here recently for the first time, on the recommendation of a friend. The food was good, but nothing that I would say exceptional. Service was average at best. Our waiter was courteous but we had to ask multiple times for drink refills, silverware, etc. The décor was nice and the place seemed clean. We will probably try... More

I was.staying in Stevens Point for awhile and got into the habit of eating here. The chips and salsa are great but I really enjoy the Special Dinner.

I have eaten here lots of times ,don't understand how it could get a bad review,food is always good,service is insanely fast,even when busy,must be that these people leaving bad reviews grew up eating toxic hell, I mean taco bell? And that's Mexican food to them

Being from Texas, we had a craving for some sit down Mexican food. Needless to say, its hard to satiate our palate, when we get the best Mexican being from Texas. I spoke Spanish to the waiter who seemed to look puzzled when I did (most likely not many caucasians speak Spanish in Wisconsin), but he also didn't converse back... More

We use to really enjoy coming here, but it's slowly going downhill. This is probably the last time we'll eat here. The food really had no flavor; the tamales, enchiladas, and burritos all tasted the same. The rice was dry, the beans were soupy, and EVERYTHING was swimming in red sauce. They never have more than two waiters, even if... More
