Mezcalero Cocina Mexico is located at 8368 Richmond Highway, Alexandria, VA 22309, and was highly recommended on our Social Media for the next Corridor Cuisine spotlight. This restaurant did not disappoint and is a staple Richmond Highway Corridor Restaurant. Mezcalero Chef Alfredo Solis and his sister Jessica, bring authentic cuisine and fresh flavors from Mexico City to this fantastic restaurant. They have 2 Mezcalero locations, one in Alexandria and the other in Washington, DC. They offer Happy Hour deals Monday through Friday from 3 PM to 6 PM. Additionally, they offer pickup and have an outdoor seating area. 

Mezcalero has delicious street food offerings, including street tacos ranging from the incredibly affordable price of $3 to $4. SFDC favorites include the Fajitas “La Vaca” (Grilled Steak), Carnitas Street Taco, and the Campechano Street Tacos. 

Excerpt from The Washington Post article “The upcoming cheap-eats restaurants you should be most excited about”:

“The Solises had first envisioned Mezcalero as a small-plates emporium, but they changed the concept after talking to neighbors, who convinced the owners to create a restaurant closer in spirit to the original location of El Sol, which the siblings shuttered last year. “There’s not a lot of places you can go and have a meal, a good meal,” Alfredo Solis says of the neighborhood. “That’s why I changed it.”
