Upscale Mexican very good

Met some friends here for dinner. Everything that everyone had was good, from chips to tacos. I ordered the Brisket - if you like brisket you have to try Mez's. Huge piece of meat and great flavor.

Called in for a light lunch. Nice surroundings and very quiet on a Saturday mid-afternoon. I only wanted a drink and something small to eat so sat at the bar. Ordered a small salad with pumpkin seeds and it was really tasty and it was the right size when you don't need a big meal. Wish the young waitress hadn't... More

Excellent taco happy hour (4-6 M-Fri). Each taco costs $2 or $3 and I was full after four. The Fish taco and spicy chicken taco were fantastic. The sauces were great and the ingredients very fresh. What a value. In addition, the wait staff was wonderfully helpful without being overbearing. I will return.

Went with a bunch of people to dinner and we ordered the chips and salsa - which I think were the tiniest little salsa samplers you've ever seen and to share between 8 of us was funny so of course we had to order several. Had some of the grilled catfish tacos and they just weren't anything all that great.... More

The environment and food were good. We had the Guacamole and chips to start. Excellent choice as the combination of ingredients and just the right touch of spice/bite was spot on. I had a Quesadilla Flour tortilla, corn peppers, jack cheese with chicken and a soda. Service was very good and as well as the food. We sat talking for... More

Service was very good and the food was great! We had the chips and salsas appetizer (delicious) followed by enchiladas and burritos. Huge portions but excellent quality and flavors. Margarita was tasty too! :) I would definitely go back when in the area.

Very nice decor at MEZ. The menu is a tad bit limited but that's probably not a bad thing at a Mexican place. Chips and salsa was a bit pricey, but everything else was fairly priced, especially the $2 happy hour tacos. Nice choices for kids that includes ice cream or sorbet.

This upscale Mexican restaurant has improved over time. The service is attentive, and the menu items, delicious and properly spiced. I recommend the chicken tinga tacos and the salsa trio with chips. The wine menu is extensive and the cocktails are well-made. My only complaint is that the hours are not posted on the front door.

On a cold, wet Sunday night, we stopped for a bite to eat before heading to our hotel. In addition to the Mexican standards, the restaurant also serves Mexican inspired. The trio of salsa were tasty and hot when expected. Both our main dishes were properly cooked and had plenty of flavors. Would definitely go back.

Mez is one of my favorite Mexican restaurant. Queso is my favorite along with empanadas. Great cocktails!
