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

Good choice for a business meeting near RTP. Good service and great food. Usually seating is not a problem especially if you get there a little before noon.

Went here for dinner on a Tuesday night and was surprised how busy it was at 8 pm. There is a large bar and high tables in the front area and lower tables and more quiet in the back. Seemed to be many business people dining as there are several hotels and offices in the area. Quite a variety on... More

We stopped in for lunch. We had prompt service and the food was pretty good. The kids meals were also good. They had grilled chicken with cilantro rice and loved it.

This restaurant is close to RTP and is a go-to favorite for lunch time. I also recommend it for dinner. Guacamole is wonderful as are the chicken tamales. This is more upscale and gourmet than a regular Mexican restaurant. Great margaritas! Parking can be a challenge at lunch and Mon-Fri after work.

Being from Arizona, I get to experience great Mexican food any time I want. Traveling to North Carolina I I didn't expect to be impressed by a Mexican food place but I was. The group I was with wanted Mexican food so we went to Mez based on recommendations from several. The food was fantastic, wonderful blending of flavors. The... More

Went with my wife on our trip to Durham. Really enjoyed the chef's spin on traditional Mexican food. Empanadas were exciting with a little kick. Had a burrito that was quite filling. Would recommend to anyone.
