We dined with several couples on Wednesday evening. The waiter was polite but not efficient. A guest asked for a beer menu - the waiter never brought it until we asked again when our meals were served. He brought the wrong meal to one of...our guests. Chips were served with no salsa/dip. I have never dined in a Mexican restaurant where you had to purchase the salsa. My chicken quesadilla was supposed to be served with vegetables. They were served with chicken and cheese. My husband's steak fajita was not appetizing. The steak was extremely tough. One last thing to mention - another guest pointed out that there were two fairly large cockroaches walking in the dining room!!! Not quite what I expected in a restaurant.More

Cheese Dip was something I can't explain other than horrible. Red salsa tasted like paint thinner smells. Food was cold We won't be back

Three of us had dinner here in April. There was a slight wait for outside seating but worth the wait. The restaurant was open for indoor seating but..... I started with a very delicious raspberry margarita followed by the fish tacos which were an excellent...choice. Worth returning again and again.More

I got my heart set on going here a little last-minute. They weren't just accommodating. They were kind. The food was amazing. The service was excellent. I will most definitely be back.

To lead with my title, I usually love the margaritas here and had two doubles...and didn’t feel a thing. I’m not a big guys and started drinking before eating anything. To add, the second one was noticeable sweeter than the first...so, please do something about...your margaritas. Great social distancing measures, very friendly staff, unlimited tortilla chips, flautas and the plant based chorizo tacos were delicious! Definitely recommend for Mexican!More

Had a great dinner with friend while visiting RDU. Tried street corn based on server recommendation and was amazing! Best guacamole in RDU area. Had the burrito and was delicious. My go to restaurant for Mexican. Can’t beat margaritas too.

Not a huge Mexican person so opted for a Rib Eye which came with sweet potato mash. Large steak and was very tasty.

Five of us took our friend David to the Mez To celebrate his birthday. The name Mez is non descriptive, so I had no idea what to expect. It turned out to be Mexican, but not your traditional Mexican! It was a perfect seamless event....We all ordered different things and the food was superb. I had the brisket, and it was perfect. The food arrived all at once with no issues. The service, setting was top notch. We had made a reservation and timing all worked out. We ordered two desserts and shared. Two of those were enough for all six of us. Again, superb! One suggestion: I ordered a margarita, and it was okay, but for the price, they should check out what Chili’s offers with their El President! Still, all in all a very nice gathering among friends. Thank you Cindy for organizing.More

The food was wonderful. Some of the best Guac I have ever had. The service was outstanding which made up for the price of the food. It is a little pricey, but you pay for atmosphere and location.

I used to enjoy this restaurant, especially when they had their enchiladas suizas on the menu. Had been there numerous times in the past. But today it was a total disappointment. The waiter did not bring us the chips and salsa we ordered for the...pre-meal until he brought the main courses. And he did not refresh our drinks. The main courses included a shrimp flautas and an enchilada dish and both were mediocre to bad. A very disappointing meal.More
