Becca and Kristy went to Mezcalito's on Saturday, April 21st, for lunch during the Earth Day Festival.

What did you order? How was your food?

We ordered the same thing - Mojitos and Green Salads with pumpkin seeds, roasted tomatoes and cheese with lime vinaigrette. I added steak, and Kristy added chicken.

Mezcalito's Green Salad is a generous portion with plenty of meat if you request it to be added. The dressing and ingredients are delicious and fresh-tasting.

The mojitos were tasty and strong - just enough mint flavor.

Describe your impressions of the service.

The server was a very pleasant woman who came right over to our outdoor table. Another server engaged us in conversation and made us feel welcome as well.

Also, the owner of the establishment, Vladimir, was friendly and down-to-earth. He spoke to us and other guests, making sure we were enjoying ourselves.

What do you think of the decor and atmosphere?

We ate outside. Our mosaic-topped table had a great view of Oakhurst Square, where there was live music for Earth Day. The interior of the restaurant was beautifully-decorated.

The bathroom was hand-painted with a humorous blessing in Spanish. (I saw the word "borracha" which means drunk anyway). Gorgeous framed pictures and Mexican-style decorations adorned the walls of the establishment.

Was this restaurant a good value?

Yes, but if you can't spend much, watch your specialty beverage consumption (aren't all restaurants like that, though)?

We ended up spending $77 for two, but that was only because we drank and talked for a couple of hours. If we had only had the salads with the pitcher of mojitos, we would have escaped after forking over about $54. (A pitcher of mojitos costs $24). Still, it was worth it! We had a GREAT TIME!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate this restaurant compared to the other restaurants you visit on a regular basis?

10 for Mexican restaurants and for salads

This restaurant is best for?

Good food, Quick bite, Family-friendly, Outdoor
