Cheap Eats 2017: Mezcalero

About Mezcalero


Contact This Restaurant

Chef Alfredo Solis and sister Jessica evoke the flavors of their native Mexico City at their pair of taquerias—don’t miss “basket tacos,” soaked in guajillo salsa and stuffed with black beans, chorizo, and chicharrones. We prefer shoe-box-size El Sol in Logan Circle for lunchtime (a dazzling Hawaiiana torta) or lingering over chicken cloaked in mole. The bigger Mezcalero is our pick for a lively evening, thanks to jumbo margaritas and stomach-padding fare such as queso fundido and stuffed gorditas.
