Usually we go for lunch. Most recently about 10 days ago. Service is dependably good. Often there is a slight language barrier but not a problem. This location is busy and we find we often need to remind staff after we have our order about requests we made when placing the order. They always smile and jump to provide what... More

The service was good and there is a decent vegetarian selection on the menu. The waiter was very nice and took some pictures for us.

I enjoy going here fairly often. If you go here, make sure to get the bean dip. It is delicious. But on a few occasions there is not that great of service. This was one of those occasions. This waiter in particular always seems to be irritated about everything that is requested. I never get his name and I never... More

We eat here quite often. It's a good value for the amount of food served. There are marguarita specials on Tuesdays & Thursdays.

I've been there a few times the staff is very uptight and rude. The food is disgusting you can buy better Mexican food at Taco Bell. Don't like it at all haven't returned.

We come to this excellent Mexican restaurant for the 99 cent Margaritas that they have Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but recently had to do carry-out and it was the same great quality. We liked that they included the free chips and salsa with our carry-out order. Menu is large with many good selections. Excellent Fajita taco salad, chili Colorado, burrito... More

Ate here three times within about 2 weeks. Each experience was positive. The wait staff was polite and even if you have someone with limited English it always works out just fine. :) Ordered the Chimichanga chicken and it was great. Son ordered pacifica fajitas and another friend ordered taco's. Everything was very very good. We have learned to ask... More

Delicious Mexican food, many selections, reasonably priced. This restaurant is located by downtown area. We come to this restaurant every time we visit family in Topeka. Consistently good food.

ah, El Mezcal, the paragon of midwestern Mexican restaurants, how I love thee. El Mezcal isn't the place to go if you're looking for a Cantina Laredo like Mexican experience - come to El Mezcal to reconnect with your tastebuds, 99 cent margaritas, and your family. I absolutely loved coming here, the food was served promptly, and a special hint... More

This is our weekly go to spot. 99c margs offered 2 days a week (Tuesday/Thursday) and they do not disappoint. We like the fresh food and many choices. The queso is fabulous! Our little diners enjoy the beans, nachos, and tamales. We enjoy the fajitas Jalisco, salsa, and tamales covered in white queso.
