  • Mecca's doesn't offer gourmet dishes. People come here for comfortable atmosphere and simple, but delicious homemade food. Fried chicken is a common favorite.
  • The San Fran Chicken!
  • Late night grumpy crew... no thanks - i didnt order my meal with a side eye roll.
  • Really cool place to hang out. Straight from the 1930s.
  • Sandwiches make for a good, quick lunch. Try the Double Decker.
  • Love this place!
  • Get the chicken salad sandwich with a tomato!
  • Established 1930 Old school joint with greasy breakfast! You don't see too many places like this anymore.
  • It doesn't get more real than Mecca.
  • Lemon pepper chicken on Fridays
  • 2nd time here...bbq is amazing, burgers are right on! Really fun atmosphere.
  • Oldest bar in Raleigh. Head here before going to Neptunes. Great cheap beer and food.
  • The steak sandwiches are the best thing ever! The only thing I ever get.
  • Get anything it is all good but Thursdays the lasagna is the deal!
  • One of the most underrated restaurants downtown. Great southern breakfast and plate lunches.
  • Breakfast is good! Scrambled eggs w/cheese and grits were great. Steak was ok, needed a tad more seasoning but cooked well. My first visit. Will definitely be back!
  • Fabulous biscuits and the most deliciously greasy sausage links. Love the atmosphere too!
  • Good quick food
  • I love the grilled cheese with tomato!!!
  • I love Mecca! They have every kind of food for any type of person. I get the daily vegetable plate with the local vegetables and Mac n cheese! It's delicious- trust me!
