I ate here with colleagues on September evening. I had 2 splendid margaritas, wonderful bbq brisket (I know, not exactly a Mexican specialty) accompanied by mashed sweet potatoes. The service was attentive. All in all, a very good meal.

Been to Mez before and thought food was very basic and overpriced. Had not been back for food but decided to go with friends for a quick beer or two after a long week. Ordered two Stella drafts and paid 6.40 each and they were poured into water glasses. For that kind of money could you please use the proper... More

Every menu item I have had at this restaurant is delicious. I can't speak to authenticity, but for someone who eats a lot of Moe's and calls that Mexican, this is very much real Mexican food. The quesadillas are always so melty and amazing, and their chips and salsas really satisfy.
