I always enjoy my meals at Mez. Great food and drinks.
Had a reservation- easy to get seated, high quality food, nice atmosphere.
Food was delicious and our waiter was wonderful! Lovely atmosphere.
Good food, good service, loud noise due to repairs on upstairs patio.
Let me say that the restaurant was very full for a Wednesday night. So, there are many people who like the style of food served. For us it was way too smoky- maybe due to the Chipotle. We did not like the salsa, the frozen margarita (really- I didn't like the margarita because it tasted smoky), the baked enchilada (very dry), the Chili Rellenos (Very little cheese). We did like the queso- it was really good cheese and was great. Caroline, the manager on duty and Eric our server, were both really accommodating. It wasn't their fault we didn't like the food.
The server was great.
Great service and food.
Good food, great service, incredibly fast order prep/delivery.
We were disappointed in our meal. We were a group of four and two of our entrees were unsatisfactory and had to be sent back. Mine was the Ancho Beef Brisket and it was, no exaggeration, half fat. It was replaced with a much leaner piece, which was edible, but not particularly good. Another member of our party’s dish was not prepared as requested and had to be replaced also. Even the two meals that we didn’t have to send back were not very good.
To compensate for the two meals that had to be sent back, management offered a free dessert — for one of us. When we remarked that we had to send back two dishes, they offered another free dessert.
We have enjoyed Mez in the past and hope that our experience was unusual. That said, we won’t be going back anytime soon.
Waitress was extremely rudev
Mez is always a nice dependable option in the area. The food and service are always great and we've never been disappointed going there. Great value at happy hour too.
Wonderful food with a nice and relaxing environment. Will absolutely recommend to others.
Absolutely love Mez! This is my 3rd time there and it never disappoints. The staff is professional and helpful every time I am there, the food is fabulous and the environment is trendy and cool. Have not been there for happy hour, but I am sure the bar would be lots of fun. I had the kale grain bowl with shrimp added and my guest had the brisket tacos, YUM!
Food is generally quite good. The Black and Blue tacos were a miss. The chewy flank steak should have been cut up (hard to eat chewy meat in a taco) and too much blue cheese was used. I sent it back and got the steak tacos, which were very good.
Staff was friendly, professional and courteous. Our attendant, Emilie, was very pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful with our choices. The salsa trio and guacamole were great starters. The chicken tinga tacos and burritos were excellent and I highly recommend the smoked red chili pork shank. We will definitely return when we are in Durham.
We had girls’ night out at Mez for Cinqo de Mayo. Most of us got the drink special, frozen strawberry margarita, which was $10. Tasted ok but nothing special and we weren’t able to upgrade the tequila bc the waiter said it was premade(!) My meal was not good at all. I ordered the Baja fish tacos, which I thought was a safe order. The fish was over-breaded; there were actual bites that did not have fish...just breading. The fish, rice and beans were all bland without seasoning. I was unable to finish the dish and just gave it back to the waiter. There was no offer to get me anything else or even to ask what I didn’t like about the meal. The chips were ok but clearly no reason to return to this establishment ever again.
Great service with a classy ambience. The drinks are very good, and everything on the menu was reasonably priced. The decor was comfortable and we enjoyed the patio seating. This is a good place for drinks or a date. They have preferred parking for hybrid vehicles.
Graduation - Paul our server was awesome, food and drinks were outstanding!
Food was very good and service too. I wold love to go again.
Good food, fair prices, good service, nice atmosphere.
Having the server upsell chips and salsa just before the entree arrived was annoying.
My friend and I had an excellent lunch at Mez, which never disappoints. I had a delicious dish with shrimp and red rice, and my friend had a chicken quesadilla. Our server was outstanding and made some good recommendations. It was great to be able to make a reservation on Open Table in advance - the restaurant was hopping for lunch so we were glad to have made a reservation.
The blackened catfish bowl was creative and delicious!
Mez has excellent food and friendly service. It was nice and quiet when I was seated at 5:15 on Saturday. By the time I was ready to leave, it was getting busy and a little loud. Good Saturday evening crowd!
All great. Friendly waitress but didn’t refill husband’s drink glad until asked. Otherwise very nice- would visit again soon.
Great food and service....Chicken Tinga Tacos and Street Corn were top notch....
Attractive space, but few tables seated Saturday night. Promptly greeted by waiter who throughout meal was professional and thorough. Guacamole was fresh and very good. Chicken Tinga dish was sweet and spicing was a little weird-would not order again. Fish tacos were outstanding. Plate presentations were a little fussy. Didn't mind that it's a little more expensive than typical Tex/Mex place, but just didn't care for the overall chain feel of the dining experience.
Brought a friend from out of town. She loves margaritas and Mez has some of the best. We were not disappointed! Our food was also delicious.
We sat outside, the food was tasty, the guacamole serving is very large!
Great place to celebrate a birthday
I hadn't been to Mez in many years however we had some family flying in and decided to meet there. It was so good - delicious food.
I had a better experience when I came here for lunch.
The service is good and the portions are generous- I had the fish tacos, which I thought were good-- ask for the sauce on the side if you don't love spicy food. My date had the veggie/portabella fajitas and the veggies were quite greasy-- it doesn't take much oil to make veggies taste good, folks! It's an interesting place, but way too loud when there are large groups of people there. I wont say I will never go back, but it will probably be a while. I typically find myself disappointed when eating out these days- I feel like I can have a much nicer and healthier meal at home and not have to deal with all the other "stuff" - of course, not doing the dishes is nice.. Maybe give Mez a try and see what you think.
Great food great service love the guacamole and the enchiladas.
Great food, consistently good service, staff familiar with allergy questions
The food was so-so. The kitchen refused special requests. My friend asked for extra lemon. She got two tiny pieces. She asked again and got two more tiny pieces.
Mez is one of my 'go to' restaurants. The food is always consistent and fresh, service is always good. It is an excellent restaurant for business dinners as well. You cannot go wrong with a lunch or dinner at Mez!
Everything was great but hard to hear conversation
Margaritas are all fantastic. Bring an appreciation for guacamole
My lunch was excellent! I had the vegetarian tacos. However one of the women with me had enchiladas that were cold. They remade them but it was weird. My other friend got the Verde salad that she and I both love, but it looked pretty pathetic. I think it used to be served in a bowl? And later she told me that what was missing was the queso. I was really disappointed because I usually love eating there.
