    If Mezza is THAT good, instead of looking for cheap rent, perhaps they should look for a PRIME LOCATION. I have only gone to that strip mall for 5 Guys. If they came to our 'hood, I would give them two shakes.

    There are some success stories in Ashburn for local independent restaurants. I love to support indies over chains, but many of the indies are mediocre.

    I think that Parallel will succeed.

    Good service + fun concept + good food + strong owner presence = success

    Price doesn't factor in if the quality of food and service are there.

    Isn't Mezza Grill in "our hood"? I thought it was next to Fins and Feathers.

    You're right - Mezza Grill is in the Safeway shopping plaza, where Forno and Bluez Brothers (or however they spelled it) had been. Bonefish Grill is often busy, but Mezza Grill doesn't get that kind of traffic since they're not a national chain. :(

    This is me - but I tried Mezza Grill once, food didn't impress me.......and from the looks of the lack of customers in there when I was there, I think a lot of people feel the same way.

    I love Mezza. They're Chicken Shawarma salad is one of my favorite take-out meals. When I'm splurging on calories I get the Mosakhan. Yum yum yum.

    try again. they really DO an excellent job. many people aren't willing to branch out to such an ethnic restaurant so they will never get steakhouse numbers, but it really IS excellent turkish, lebanese and greek cuisine. the lentil soup is excellent, the chicken melts in your mouth and the spinach is to die for.

    you trust me right tyger??? ;)

    Another thumbs up for Mezza Grill. We've eaten there many times and never had a bad experience. Very tasty food.

    Yes, Mezza grill is great. Only one bad experience there, I had to pick up the tab for my family when they were in town, and they loved it, so the bill was high....I guess that was Mezza Grills fault, the food was too good.

    If you don't want Greek food but would like to try Mezza, I believe they offer brunch on the weekends. At that time they offer simple items like pancakes.
