A word from Mezcal Cantina - Leominster
Mezcal pioneered the flavors of the Southwest to Worcester. Now we expanded to Leominster! 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. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Happy to say this is now my "go to" when unsure about what to eat. Service always timely and helpful, knowledgable of the menu. Always quick to provide good suggestions baed on having tried already. Can be loud in the dining area closest to the bar but mostly happy chatter. Food is authentic, fresh and creative. Usually get the chef's special and never been disappointed. Price is reasonable and worth every bite. Great addition to the local food scene."

  • "What a great choice for an evening going out with another good couple of friends! We had the night for 4, so were able to sample apps, entrees and desserts. The wings we had were awesome--just the right mix of spicy and sweet. Steak entrees were well liked. My shrimp risotto was superb. The two desserts we chose were delicious--fried ice cream and crème brûlée. A great night!"

  • "I went to Mezcal for lunch on a Sunday and the guacamole was delicious, I wasn't too fond of how thin the chips were and how they couldn't stand up to the guac. I got a taco salad that was good. Mexican food is not particularly my favorite food but I can say with certainty that this is one of the better Mexican restaurants in the area. I would definitely go again but maybe on a Friday or Saturday night when there is also a full menu."

  • "When we moved to Leominster we had a hard time finding local, original, non-italian restaurants. Mezcal has an amazing tequilla list, surprising gaucamole options and delicious standard mexican dishes. My only negative is that its a tight space, but I enjoy the cozy, energetic feel."

  • "We had a nice night out but that was mainly due to the fact I was spending time with my wife. First, the noise level in this restaurant was louder than TGIFridays, we literally could not hear each other talking and we were sitting right across the table from each other. Second, the service was very slow, over an hour and a half before we even got our dinner. Third, waiter got our soft drink order wrong twice. Fourth, the food: appetizer was wrong twice, chicken coating was visually burned, should have never left the kitchen. Polenta was dry and under-cooked, it had the texture of day old fried rice. Bread pudding was dry and other than the topping had no flavor. We also found that 2 nearby tables with the same waiter had similar issues."

  • "The guacamole is fabulous! They have an app with three different types (you choose the flavors) comes with tri-colored chips and I always ask for flour tortillas warmed and cut into triangles. Soooo good. If you like guacamole your definitely should try this."

  • "Having been to both the Worcester and Leominster locations several times, I have never been disappointed by the food and service at Mezcal. I was pleasantly surprised by the updated menu since my last visit. I highly recommend the spicy yet flavorful drumstick appetizer - in fact, all of the appetizers were so good that our large group of friends was rather full when dinner arrived. My only caution would be the desserts - the special dessert of the day was fantastic but some of the regular dessert items paled in comparison to the rest of the dining experience."

  • "We enjoyed celebrating our daughter's 17th birthday last week, and the meals (as usual) were hearty, delicious, and prepared with panache by the chefs. Our server was attentive to all of us (a large party of 7), and all of our meals arrived hot. Thanks, again to the Mezcal Cantina staff for providing a warm environment to enjoy a family gathering, and some fantastic food! The vegetarian and chicken versions of EGGS MEZCAL was ordered by 4/7 of us that day."

  • "It has fabulous guacamole and over the food overall is good. Can be noisy if you are anywhere near the bar area..."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The drinks available were very good. The food was good however very pricey. Overall was happy with food and drinks but again it was very pricey considering what you got. I would go back again but probably just for appetizers and drinks."

  • "For the first time we did the 2 for $45 dinner and absolutely loved it it's a great way to save money yet allow you to get out of the house and spend some quality time together"

  • "Reservation was for 7:15 on Saturday night, it was closer to 7:35 before we were seated. Restaurant is exceedingly loud and busy, but they have a good handle on it. Quesadilla was a bit 'toasty', to the point it should have probably been sent back to the kitchen...but opportunity did not present itself. It would be great if the 'add in's in the guacamole were sliced into more manageable pieces, rather than 1/2 in chunks... ( we got sugar cubes of jiicama and mango)..doesn't matter how often I request that it NOT happen this way....it never changes."

  • "The entree's were the most disappointing. We really likes the chips, salsa, and gaucamole. The margarita was good too and the creme brulee was yummy. But the taco meat was dry and the enchiladas wraps were too thick. I personally didn't like the mole sauce at Mezcal. The service was good though."

  • "Food, drinks, service all outstanding! Always consistent - The BEST Guacamole anywhere!"
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "Mezcal has an extensive Tequila list and makes great margaritas in a variety of favors. They are known for their guacamole which we have had in the past and is very good. On this visit we had Nachos, Steak Fajitas, Shrimp Risotto, and Bananas Foster Chimichanga for dessert. It was all OK but not something we can't wait to have again. For example, the steak fajitas lacked seasoning and were not sizzling when they came out; not bad, just OK. Service was very good with the notable exception of the long time it took for our appetizer to come out. We really like the ambience (décor, vibe, etc.) at Mezcal and would go more often if the food were better."

  • "Had an excellent menu for New Year's Eve! Waitress was amazing.... Too her time with us but not too long, just enough to make it personal."

  • "We used a gift card on NY Eve, so didn't worry about price, but were aware of the prices, which were a little high, so would only come once or twice a year. The food was excellent. We started with Mediterranean Guacamole and it was delicious! The Margerita was also tasty. Only negative of the meal was that our meals came immediately after the appetizer did. Very poor planning in the kitchen. For dinner I had pork quasadilla and my husband had a veggie burrito. Both were excellent, the burrito being the best. A really nice assortment of veggies. We were too full for dessert. The service was excellent as well."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The Margaritas and food were delicious. I highly recommend their guacamole, fried jalapeno rice appetizer, and of course the shredded bbq duck quesadilla! It's unique and flavorful. If you are adventurous you should definitely sample some tequila, there's an extensive selection ranging in price. I went on New Year's Eve as well and was a little worried it'd be too busy and our service might suffer but this surely wasn't the case. Our waiter was attentive and helpful! Overall a memorable experience."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I basically had a meal of nachos (bagged and fried, not homemade) and guacamole (which was wonderful!) But the fried plantains were very dried out, and the black beans had no seasoning - very bland. Several times, our orders were mixed up, and there was no service knowledge of gluten-free options. This place is a cozy spot by appearance, but the food and service were mediocre at best. Only cheesecake or creme brulee choices for dessert - not even traditional flan! Are they trying to be French or Mexican? Lastly, the margaritas hardly have any alcohol, so you have to order several."

  • "We went out with a group of friends and we had a great time. The food was great and our server was attentive and gave great recommendations for food and drinks. The guacamole trio was the best and the special guacamole with bacon was a tasty surprise."

  • "Food is always very good. Guacamole best I have ever had! I have never had a bad meal. The only complaintor maybe comment is a better word I would have is the main course comes too quickly after the appetizer. Time should be spread out more. We were only 1/3 through our flight of guacamole when our meal arrived. Maybe have servers ask if you want wait time before entree arrives.... I do love this restaurant!!"

The waitress was wonderful allowing us to catch up and interrupting only when needed. The food was amazing! Everyone enjoyed the Quac to start and their meals later. Drinks were fabulous. They created a drink just for me! Cant wait to go back."

  • "Our group enjoyed the margherita pitchers, the daily guacamole appetizer, and each of our entrees! The chicken burrito was chock-full of chicken and had a kicky sauce decoratively designed over top! The waitress was very helpful and attentive! We would definitely return again! Leominster is lucky to have Mezcal there on Main Street with such easy parking options. Thank you!"

  • "The appetizers that we ordered were quite good. However, there were three of us in our party, and when dinner arrived, 2 of our dinners (quesadillas and chimichangas) were *burned* (actually black in places). Obviously we sent them back. They did replace them, and the second time around was much better. But the third person in our party ate while we waited for our replacements so that his dinner did not get cold, and this was just not the dining experience we had hoped for. Management stopped by with a 2 second apology and the waiter made an offer of free dessert (which we did not want). Big deal. Considering we were out celebrating our wedding anniversary, the burned dinners pretty much ruined the experience."

  • "Foremost in my mind was the service. Our waiter was polite, professional, helpful, patient and did an excellent job. The appetizer had good presentation arousing our taste buds. The main meals were very filling. I was not expecting such a large burrito. Excellent taste and good seasoning. The fajitas were well seasoned and the chicken was not dry. Also very well prepared. We will visit again and come more hungry."
