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.

If you are looking for all the chips and salsa you can eat while waiting for your food this is the place to go. Their lunch is normally pretty quick if there is not a lot of people already there. Their food is good and they have daily specials.

We love El Mezcal. Food is always great. Service is great. It's a busy place but we have always been seated relatively fast. We will definitely go back!

My friends, family and I go here a lot to eat but our last experience literally sucked! My friends and I had just ordered another round of margaritas (the best in Norfolk, NE) when the owner/manager came over and started cleaning off our table. We had 2 bowls of dips and a bowl of chips, that we were going to... More
