MexCal Mexican Cuisine is perfectly located amid the hustle and bustle of Hartz Avenue in quaint downtown Danville, and within just two months, has established itself as a favorite amongst the locals. MexCal is glowing with vibrant culture, with its hand carved, hand painted wood chairs and bright paintings of Mexican fruits and agave harvesting, making it a sight to see.
Owners Jose Barajas and his wife Maria carefully selected local, organic and sustainable ingredients, and the perfect location, separating MexCal from other Mexican restaurants with their hand-made tortillas, home mixed juices for the perfect margaritas, and traditional dishes bringing a perfect mix of the culture from Mexico to California.
Jose proudly states that his dishes are cooked in a health-conscious style, with olive oil instead of lard, and the menu offers more than just burritos and tacos like a standard taqueria. The Cochinita Pibil is an appetizing treat, with tender, juicy marinated pork that cooks to perfection overnight, and the Enchiladas MexCal put a unique twist on standard enchiladas, with mole sauces from both Mexico and California, combining the best of both cultures. The restaurant also offers organic tequilas and specialty margarita juices, like cactus flower, fresh agave nectar, and spicy roasted jalapeños, making everything on their menu personalized and hand selected. Add handmade guacamole with fresh avocados and authentic salsas, and MexCal stands on its own as a delicious, enjoyable Mexican restaurant that will leave you wanting more.
