Great salsa trio and warm chips. They have really yummy spinach enchilada. May be best past was their desert - tres leches and pecan pie! surprise mango mojito ( off menu ) was a solid too.

This place is truly delicious. I haven’t had Mexican food this good in many years. Who ever gave this less than 5 stars must be used to fast food Mexican because this place is my new favorite.

It was perfect!! We reserved the private room for a workshop and late meeting. The staff was amazing and very accommodating. We enjoyed the food and rich atmosphere. This is our second time hosting a meeting here and I'm sure we will book again! Thank you for your great service.

Had a work event here, our server was great. She said most people opt for the brisket enchiladas. They were good, portion was a size big enough I took half home. They charge for salsa. This seems like a place people would stop on the way to the airport. Started to fill up while we were there, around 6-630. So you know it’s good and popular.

Very upscale for a Mexican restaurant. This is where you'd want to go for a business lunch or reasonably nice dinner. The prices are reasonable and the food is good, the guacamole is fantastic. It's great for groups. I was disappointed that in 2022, they didn't have any alcohol-free beers on their menu. Time to modernize that.

The food and atmosphere and service are all amazing here. From what I could tell, most of the clientele come here for food and drink after work. Definitely try the corn soup - it's so creamy and rich. The Mezcal old fashioned was also delicious, make sure to get a double. Mez is perfect for a dinner gathering.

Upscale Mexican restaurant in Research Triangle Park. Spacious indoor dining areas and outstanding service. Parking is available and easy. We both ordered tacos and shared guacamole. Large portion of outstanding guac served with freshly made in house chips. Steak tacos (3) were served street taco style and featured really carmelized onions, cotija cheese, chipotle aioli and a large dollop of guac, outstanding. Baja fish tacos (2) had decent pieces of fish, aioli, and cabbage slaw. Also excellent. Not my first time here and I've never been disappointed.

After one bite of these tacos, If I should die, I would die a happy man. My wife and I went to Mez on a whim after another restaurant gave an estimated 45 minute wait. We walked into the gorgeous, two story entry way and were immediately escorted to a table. Service was impeccably friendly, prompt, and delightful. However, the bulk of this review stems from the myriad of culinary artistry that graced my plate. I ordered the Baja fish tacos expecting your average Mexican dish, but was greeted instead by a wonderful friend, a gracious guide on a tasteful adventure. I am a man of frequent depression, sadness, and general lack of happiness. But it brings me great joy to tell you that after one bite of this taco, if I should die, I would die a happy man. I have never experienced greater harmony within a dish; a gentle, spicy warmth narrated a tale of crisp breading, tender, flaky fish, and bright, fresh cabbage. A true delight, I will most definitely return.

I live in Austin, TX, and wanted a tres leches cake for my brother's birthday (he lives in Durham). They made an absolutely fantastic cake that he seems really pleased with! They were easy to deal with and the cake was ready on schedule. Also very reasonably priced! Two thumbs up.

The people were really nice!!! The cheese was good. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, go to Tijuana Flats. The plantains were the bomb and the rice and beans were sooo goood! Nice flavors. The aesthetic was very Frasurbane.
