We have eaten at El Metcal several times and have always had good food. They offer a great selection. Drinks have always been good as well. They always offer a good special for food & drink daily.

I just returned from my second visit to this restaurant. I have it a second try. Both visits we had the most awful service. I was a waitress for 5 years so I am very understanding. This was just plain awful. We never got our drinks. Our hostess finally brought them after We asked where they were. Our order of... More

Nothing fancy, but decent, typical Mexican food. Also has a full bar with good drinks. The service was very good.

This restaurant is tucked in at the end of a strip mall off of Highway 164, so it is easy to miss. If you like typical Mexican food and lots of it, El Mezcal fits the bill. They have a large menu with plenty of choices, better-than-average salsa, reasonable prices, a good amount of food on your plate. The food... More

We went for lunch on Sweetest Day. The restaurant wasn't crowded. We were served chips and salsa, and asked for our beverage selections. I had horchata, spouse had Coke. We ordered off the Combos menu - particularly, Combo #4 - 2 tacos, chile con queso, and an enchilada with the meat of your choice (chicken is our favorite). We had... More

I am from Denver, and love Mexican food. This was NOT Mexican food!!!! I ordered enchiladas which had some kind of white sauce (I guess that it was cheese, being in WI), drizzled over the platter. I guess that I am used to red sauce or pork green chili smothered over my Mexican food. I had a combo of four... More

I think some of the food here is good. The fiesta taco salad, the mini chimi's and the giant burrito. Anything you order with steak in it is not great. The steak they use is really cheap and chewy. It seems like they keep taking the same ingredients and remixing them for different menu items. The margaritas, however, are excellent!!

I just got food from this place. My husband and I have lived in Waterford for 5 years and I just found this place existed. I have never had such terrible Mexican food in my life. The meat was like dog food. I will stick with my gut from now on and go to places I know that serve actual... More

I go here at least once a month and have never been disappointed. Their service is excellent, the prices very reasonable (especially the lunch specials) and the food comes out quickly and tasty. I typically order something different every time, so I can't necessarily make a recommendation on a particular dish. Everything is good.
