Kitschy Mexican posters of famous boxers and actors mix with racy comic strips and huge advertisements for Dos Equis Lager on the walls of Mezcal, an authentic taqueria and cantina in City Park. While service can be slow, most regular patrons don’t mind waiting for dishes like the mole rojo, a seared chicken breast with mole sauce, fried plantains, cilantro rice, and frijoles negros. Mezcal also has nearly 100 different kinds of tequila available for drinks, and they recommend the house Mezcalito Margarita made with Dos Gusanos Mezcal and topped with Gran Gala.

Insider Tip:

Don’t miss Taco Tuesdays when guests can order carne asada, al pastor, chicken, or veggie soyrizo tacos for just $1.50.
