Great Lunch

Our Director took us out for lunch today. It was my first time eating at "MEZ" but, all of the ladies really enjoyed their meals. I played it safe and got the Chicken Fajitas, which were good yet, nothing to write home about!!! The only thing I did not like was the sweet tea which seem to have an... read more

Underwhelmed by the fish tacos, very unoriginal. Had better from food trucks and it was half the price. My wife had something that the waiter recommended and when it came out was a simple bowl of shrimp corn and rice which cost $17, really. The guacamole recipe was fresh and original I will say. Overall great place to go for... More

First time here for a work function. Basic food of beans, green rice, shredded chicken, tortillas, stuffed pablano with sauce. Very light cake dessert which everyone loved. Food came out little late but there was tons of it. A little on the bland side but I'm it was b because they were cooking for the masses

Yes, the title is true. What kind of Mexican restaurant makes you buy the chips and salsa?! Not any good one I know! It is overly pricey, overly rated, and they make you feel like you don't belong if you're not dressed in fancy pants. The hostess talked down to our party because we had "all these people withOUT a... More

The restaurant was quite loud, so it was hard to hear everyone. For the size of our party, and those around us, I thought the service was quite prompt and pleasant. I had the fish tacos (1st time) which were quite nice. The fish was deep-fried, so it was crunch. It was topped with an array of lettuce and sauces;... More

Modern Mexican fare. Went here for a business lunch and it was well suited for this function. Bland surroundings but the fish tacos rocked! Very tasty.

We've been to Mez on a regular basis ever since it opened and have never had a bad experience. The food is tasty and fresh, an interesting blend of Mexican cuisine and local North Carolina ingredients, and always well-prepared. The waitstaff is always friendly and attentive. My favorites include the pollo tamal, the enchiladas mole, and we never forget to... More

Our group eats here every time we meet. Wonderful margaritas (especially the blood orange). Recommend the brisket and the shrimp tacos. Wait staff is terrific!
