My wife and I have been down to the Emerald Isle area many times. Every time we have tried a different Mexican restaurant hoping for one with a pleasant experience in both the culinary and experiential!

We finally hit the jackpot!

Mezcal Mexican Grill is a wonderful balance of pleasant surroundings, excellent food and an attentive and professional staff. When we were searching for Mexican food on TripAdvisor, there were many “hole-in-the-wall” options with outdoor eating. Yet none of the indoor restaurants we have tried were very modern or updated.

The interior of the dining room was pleasant, clean, comfortable and inviting. We were immediately greeted by an enthusiastic and personable staff member who was also our waitress. She listened so carefully to our likes and dislikes that she took the initiative to have the guacamole salsa put “on the side” since she knew I wasn’t fond of really spicy things—which I am not!

The food arrived quickly. We were immediately served with chips and salsa—two types: much spicier and a spicy sweet mango salsa—and this salsa is fantastic! The mango provided a sweetness to the salsa, yet it had a pleasantly warm and smoky finish which was delightful. The spicier salsa, while not my favorite, was very, very good! It was incredibly savory with a very strong presence of tomato and peppers. Hotter than the mango, yet exceptionally pleasant and will not burn your lips off! (Metaphorically speaking....)

Near the end of our visit I had the pleasure of speaking with Mike the manager (the way he helped everyone would also make me think he’s the owner as well). There aren’t many reviews of this place which is unfortunate. There are people who seek to write negative reviews in spite of having their concerns professionally addressed.

Mezcal Mexican Grill is a phenomenal establishment which is well-run and very well managed. This is by far one of the very best Mexican restaurants I’ve eaten at in many years!

It’s worth the time and very affordable!

Chips were blah testing. Salsa didn't even taste like salsa. Jalapeño poppers or snake bites were awesome, but served with dinner , not before. Steak fajitas were heavily greasy not sitting on top but stirred all into oily mix. Having lived in Texas we were spoiled by great Tex-mex. This did not live up to its Mexican hinting name. Pass and you won't regret it.

We were seated quickly and the waitress was very friendly. Our food came out fast and tasted amazing. We ordered chicken fajitas and Mexican Lasagna, both were amazing and full of flavor! The mango salsa was also something we had never had before and quickly fell in love with!

What a surprise! Duck confit burrito - unbelievably delicious. Lots of traditional Mexican entrees that were enjoyed by our group too. I will return here soon.

Arrived at 3 pm and seated with a smile. I had the Shrimp Vera Cruz and wife had the early bird enchiladas. Both were superb. Server was very nice. Portions were large so no room for desert. Will be back.
