Description: Mezcalito's Cocina & Tequila Bar is an authentic Mexican restaurant with a twist. Our head chef prepares all the dishes based from his hometown of Acapulco. At Mezcalito's, we pride ourselves on fresh, homemade meals. We even hand squeeze lime and lemon juice for all our margaritas.

I remember the Billy Goat Cantina days and knew that the menu and decor were similar. But the food was just o.k. Back in the day, the old Billy Goat Cantina was better (in Oakhurst). The space, decor and outdoor patio were good. The service was average. The margaritas were pretty good. The prices were a little high for the quality of food provided.

Tucked on a side street, behind Tin Lizzy's on Memorial drive, you will find a quietly kept secret. Mezcalito's Cocina has great food, great drinks, and great service. This is the sister location to the Decatur Square original. We have been there several times...each with the same level of excellence.

This trip we had the fish taquitos and the chilaquiles -- both were excellent! We did dessert this time (cranberry bread pudding and churros). The laid back atmosphere, and wonderful decorations make this an easy spot for lunch or dinner.

It is also real easy on the pocketbook!!!!

Within the past week, I've had two meals (lunch and dinner) at the Mezcalito's Cocina and Tequila Bar location on Oakland Avenue. I was impressed that they have safe parking behind their location in what appears to be a converted quonset hut. I wasn't expecting much in ambiance but was very pleasantly surprised at how attractive and welcoming the interior is. I'm also impressed with the food. For lunch, I had a sampling of their $2 tacos with sides of their black beans and signature "green" rice. The tacos were generously filled with very tasty ingredients and the side dishes quite nice. When joining friends for dinner several nights later, we chose to dine on their spacious outdoor patio. Food quality and service were great then, too. I highly recommend trying this Mezcalito's location.
