Service was very good. There were quite a few people dining during a mid-afternoon visit. Chips and salsa were not that good. Meals were nothing special. We are not fans of this chain of Mexican restaurants, although, this one was better than Marshfield or Ladysmith's.

Had to try this place but wish I hadn't. Service was only fair. I had Carnitas and they were dry and tasteless. She had a chimmi and said that was ok . Not a bad place, just not impressed. Would I go back? No

Looking for a place to enjoy Mexican food in the Wausau area? I am rarely disappoint with El Mezcal. I love their fajitas and chimi's! They also erver their meals with warm tortilla chips and fresh salsa. The portions are always plenty to fill any appetite.

I love starting off with warm salty crispy chips and a bowl of salsa. The wait staff is great, the food is served scalding hot and they are not skimpy on the portions. I never have room for dessert. The only thing that irritates me is they don't give you sour cream with their awesome chicken quesadillas. It's a buck... More

Staff was friendly. They have free shots of booze when paying for meal. Usually a bottle left right at counter. The booze is usually tequila, and a extra free bonus. Staff was friendly. Food was very good and reasonably prices. gets very busy at weekday lunch and weekends.

If your looking for an affordable, authentic Mexican experience you have come to the right place. Service was quick and there was a large variety of menu items to chose from. The restaurant is brightly colored and welcoming. The staff was friendly and never rushed you. Our family will be back again.
