We showed up around 6 on. Wednesday and there was already a 30+ minute wait for a 2-top. We sat at the bar, fortunately next to a few lively people and were quickly engaged in conversation. I had the empanada vegetable special and my husband had the grilled catfish tacos. I was surprised at how small the empanadas were. They... More

Great selection of Mexican dishes. Our food and service was very good. The entrees were very large so we could share!

Mez is one of my favorite restaurants when I travel to RTP. It is centrally located to meet up with colleagues. Mez has fresh food, with quality ingredients. I love the flavors. Service was terrific as usual. I highly recommend giving Mez a try.

Versatile menu. Taco's with kale and goat cheese, fajitas quite flavorful, grilled salmon delicious. Great bar with TVs to watch sporting events. Server good with recommendations. If it's a nice day/evening, sit outside; a little more conducive to conversation.

Started off with the Queso Flameado appetizer. I have never had an appetizer I enjoyed as much as this one. Then came the lunch special, the Burrito Burger. The first bite had me! Juicy! Tasty! Felt like Bill Murray in "What About Bob?" Mmmm! Mmmmm! Mmmmmmm! And then the sweet potato waffle fries to complete the tastiest trinity. Since I... More

Had a small luncheon at Mez today. The food was excellent, the atmosphere and service was very good. Prices are fair. We had two different types of Fish Tacos. Both looked great and tasted great.

Tacos, Burritos, Carnitas etc. I had the daily special, a hamburger burrito with bacon, cheese tomatoes and spices. Came with a... More

A group of 5 of us went here for dinner. It is an attractive space, bustling on a Saturday night. Our server was pleasant and very accommodating. If only the food was more interesting. No one came away with high praise for their dishes. I had a dish of rice and corn with kale and shrimp. The dish was not... More

I was in town for business and met an old high school buddy who picked this spot. My buddy made a reservation, which surprised me for a Tuesday eve, but the place was nearly full when we arrived at 6:30. Clientele is mostly young-ish, and seems like a good gathering spot after work. With a nearly full house, the background... More
