People of the Mecca: Matt Belcher

Today’s feature is a short Q&A with another outstanding customer who has been coming in for several years.  Thanks so much to our good friend Matt Belcher, who was kind enough to take the time to answer a few questions.

Downtown Raleigh Vegetables Local Diner Historic Dinner Lunch

Where do you work? I work in the investment field with a firm downtown.

How long have you been coming into the Mecca? I really started coming in regularly for lunch when I started working downtown. Also some friends and I would go eat breakfast on Saturdays started going to the Mecca for breakfast as well a few years back.

Where did you hear about the Mecca? The Mecca is a Raleigh staple so I’ve known about it since I moved here in the late 90s

What’s your favorite Mecca dish? The fried chicken is my go to for lunch and the pecan pie with ice cream is hard to pass up for dessert. My trainer won’t like hearing that though!

Do you have a favorite memory of the Mecca?  I don’t have one favorite but the people there are what I really like. The Dombalis crew and Kada are just really good folks and I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere that they bring.  The Mecca has been there so long and has so much character as well and you always see someone you know.  It’s my kind of place.

If someone were thinking about coming in to eat at the Mecca, and asked your opinion, what would you tell them?  I’d tell them that I highly recommend it will want to go back!

Repeat customers like Matt are so critical to the success of our business, and the casual atmosphere.  Thank you so much for all your support over the years!
