I keep trying to give this place a chance because it's a convenient and popular spot for many of the business lunches I attend, however, I have yet to find anything on the menu that makes me want to order it again ... is the food bad ... NO ... but nothing is ever DELICIOUS ... so maybe I am... More

Large place, kind of generic Spanish mission decor/feel that you'd expect to find in a chain (but I don't think it is). Very good food, from quesadillas to empanadas to guacamole as appetizers all above average and would definitely order again. Fajitas good, with Anaheim/Poblano peppers adding a nice kick (as compared to the typical bell pepper sides). Fish tacos... More

Food was good, but we had to ask for extra dip for the nachos which where not complimentary. Main meals where good, meat was cooked as requested. Good local beer Service was ok, but the place was very busy. It's recommended to book a table most nights as the place always seems busy.

Rolled in 40 minutes before closing, was very close to our hotel, and had a very enjoyable meal with my son. Loved the atmosphere of this great location. Spinach quesadilla was very tasty as were the grilled veggies. My son's chicken burrito was a nice size for a hungry teen. Would recommend this restaurant for sure.

This is our first time to Durham and to the Mez restaurant. We were very impressed in every aspect. The service was excellent and staff were friendly. The good was excellent quality and fairly significant portions for the prices. I wish we lived closer, but if we ever get the chance to return from Seattle, we will definitely return to... More

Had a business meeting/dinner here. The service was a-one - we were recommended the place by someone. We had the shrimp followed by the pineapple dessert which is to die for ! Great atmosphere, good service and wonderful food. What more do you want !?

Mez is always a great place to meet for killer margaritas and great food. Love that skinny margarita! Use Open Table for reservations during peak hours!

I've eaten at Mez on a number of occasions , both in their private room as well as in the restaurant. My recent visit continued the consistently great food and great service. I was entertaining an out of town business colleague and Mez is a great option in RTP and by the airport. We ate an early dinner in the... More

Great service and facility! Food is good, though you should know it's a little different from your typical Tex-Mex place. In my opinion, the flavors are a little more "safe" and straight forward. I got the Enchiladas Suizas (chicken) which comes with beans and rice, but the same thing from a more casual Mexican restaurant will probably be tasier. Their... More

Not your typical "Tex-mex" food. We had a group of five and everyone enjoyed their choice. I tried the steak tacos. Nice flavorful meat, in easy to mange small pieces, along with guacamole and salsa, made for a tasty meal. Parking can be a challenge as this is a popular place! I also wish they served larger portions of hot... More
