Quick friendly service on a Friday evening. Unfortunately the food was too quick, meaning that it was not made fresh. Reminded me of steam heated food. Drinks were possibly "virgin" even though they were not ordered that way.

We were there in the summer and used the courtyard, which was very very nice. The food was excellent and fast. Then again in the winter, again food was fine. Had a Margarita which I am not sure had any alcohol in it, which someone else had said too in the reviews.

My daughter and I met friends of our for lunch at Mezcal. The sign advised that they opened at 11 but at 11:20 they opened the bar area only. So we bellied up to the bar and enjoyed a delightful lunch. Our group ordered Shrimp fajitas, chicken and steak fajitas, soft tacos, enchiladas and cheese quesadillas. Everything was delicious and...

I've eaten Mezcal's restaurant at least a dozen times and have never been disappointed. Rather than the heavy cheese sauces of many Mexiccan eateries, Mescal's dishes have light sauces, interesting mixes and a lot of fish and seafood choices. Courtyard dining is delightful when weather allows it, a fun quiet place in the middle of downtown Reading.

We had fast/friendly service and great food. Had the verde sauce and the red sauce and both were amazing on the enchiladas. We will be back!

Although "gourmet" may be a slight stretch in terms of atmosphere and location, my husband and I live in the area and have thoroughly enjoyed every meal we've ordered at Mezcal's. I couldnt pronounce let alone spell some of the menu items, but I had pork with peppers and mole sauce and my husband had pork and black bean chimichangas.... More

We arrived at 6:00pm they brought us down to the basement to sit. We knew what we wanted to order and ordered right away. We ordered chicken taco salad, and sauteed shrimp around 6:45pm I asked our server if our food was ready and she said let me see. Then she brought down another table's food and did not stop... More

We visited Mezcal today and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. This tiny gem serves up,the most authentic Mexican food with awesome service. I had the shrimp fajitas, and my dining partner the enchiladas rojas. My biggest problem with my visit here is knowing what I want to order. Definitely my favorite place. Recommend highly. Never had a parking issue, but I'm... More
