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

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!

Limited but very good menu, many items are spicy but they will hold back on the heat. Very good margaritas. Outstanding deserts.

Dined here twice in last two months while in town on business. Great food both times. High ceilings make it a bit noisy but we were still able to have dinner conversation. The guacamole was outstanding. Portions are generous and service was excellent.

Generally good quality, good service and some creativity, but overall pretty standard American food with a slight Mexican flavor hear and there. If you have ever eaten in an upscale mexican restaurant in the Southwest states, you will be a bit let down. They tame things down quite a bit and tone it down for southerners.
