This was our third dinner at Mezcal. The first two were at the previous location on Shrewsbury Street. The new location lacks the intimacy and charm of the prior location with its hard edged industrial look. We tried the Ahi salad and Mezcal chicken wings...More

Fun spot to sit outside during the summer to enjoy a margarita, chips and fresh guacamole! The guacamole hit the spot. It's definitely a busy place on weekend evenings. There is a parking garage right next door. Nice selection of foods. You won't be disappointed.

We went here for a late lunch and the place was almost empty. We were pleasantly surprised when parking in the garage next door was comp'd. We had a guacamole flight, which was really good. Our entrees were very good, too, but they weren't hot....More

Mezcal pioneered the flavors of the Southwest to Worcester. Blending traditional Mexican plates with the colors and flavors of the increasingly popular Southwestern U.S. cuisine, Mezcal has been a hit since day one. Add in made to order guacamole, an unrivaled tequila list and outdoor seating to make the decision that much easier. Mezcal’s exceptional service, warm hospitality and amazing value make it a choice worth considering again and again. Mezcal Tequila Cantina is part of Niche Hospitality Group.
