I thought the food was over priced for mediocre food. It wasn't very busy and the service was so slow. However the drink menu was fun and the cocktails were tasty.

I went to Mez couple of years ago upon my colleague's recommendation while I was in RTP area for business. I enjoyed the food so much that I have been craving for it for last 2 years. I traveled to Durham again recently and went to Mez right away. The food is still great. I am not a fan of... More

Great Mexican. Not the typical fare. Not as crowded on Fri night so no wait. I had Arroz con Cameron (shrimp) and hubby had chicken fajita. Both happy!

My first visit here but it won't be my last. The shrimp tacos were SO good and the guacamole was outstanding! Great service!

I was really surprised with how much I liked this place, though perhaps I shouldn't have been, given the reviews. We were promptly seated for dinner and our server brought over some chips and a side of guac for the table, as well as some salsa - delicious. Definitely a spacious interior, and the night we were there I didn't... More

But boy is this place noisy. Designed with high ceilings and hard surfaces all round, you end up shouting to each other in a small booth. This is a meeting place for Millenials and there is lots of hilarity and good natured conversations around the bar that dominate the room. Service was great and it was the best Enchilada I... More

We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children. We arrived at 5:30 and the restaurant was not busy. Our waiter let us know he was new, but generally he did very well. Everyone was happy with their food...it was OK. And, being a vegetarian, there were good options for me. I ordered a premium Margarite $12 ($4 more... More

In fairness it was like 100 degrees in Raleigh, NC this week. However, back of the restaurant had to be 90 degrees. For the prices , they should fix temperature problems. I had been there in July a few years back and remembered as soon as I walked in... Staff did a good job, but was also noticeably hot and... More

According to my fellow meat, cheese and fish eaters it was a great spot. I had a big Verde salad with beans and a bunch of warm tostitos chips and salsa. It was okay and could b have used somebavacado, olives, variety of beans, tomatoes, peppers and a lot.more ingredients and imagination. Only gun bar club soda and no perrier,... More

Pros: Good location to meet people for lunch Nice decor inside Friendly service Cons: With high ceiling, the place is very loud and conversations can be hard to hear Food was just OK. It's not better than other Mexican places that charge 30% less The place is pleasant enough looking at it. The decor is good and modern. It says... More
