Food review: Mecca re-opens in Lakewood
Mecca is worth a pilgrimage.
LAKEWOOD Mecca opened up at Lakewood and Skillman this month, and we have been dying to try it. This new spot is located where Molly Maguire's used to be and has somewhat of "turnover" past. The new Matt's has opened up in near proximity, so this corner might be the new hot spot of East Dallas. We arrived before the church crowd on Sunday at about 11:30 a.m and there was still about a 20 minute wait. They had chairs set up outside and the lovely waitress brought a round of complimentary mimosas served in mason jars. This was a nice touch and made our wait much more enjoyable. We were seated right in the middle of the front dining area in a booth. The old banquettes are still available for seating and even the bar in the back has about 10 spots.
We were indecisive that morning, so one of us went with breakfast and the other went with lunch. The burger is 1/2 pound served up any way you like it. We had everything on the side so we could build it exactly to our liking. This burger was juicy, flavorful, and enough for two to split. Their fries are truly a treat; the potato-to-breading ratio is just right, and they are well seasoned.
Finally, we ordered a side of bacon. With the looming pork shortage, $2.50 this filled us up with three thick slices of grilled bacon.
Mecca has daily dinner specials and a whole menu that we are excited to revisit and try.
Welcome to the neighborhood, Mecca!
