Best Mexican Food in the Northeast

I am a Cal-Mex guy, but this is as good as it gets in the Northeast. When I am eating there, I go with the Tacos, but these days its more take out. I go with the carnitas burrito, extra cilantro and salsa verde, but it is all good. Get's my head right. I do take out at least every... read more

As the title implies, I'm not sure what was the worst part about this place. The food, tasteless. The service, unattentive and poor. The atmosphere, loud, unimaginative and in need of a good cleaning. Overall, a terrible experience. I couldn't get out of there fast enough, particularly since it was apparently Karaoke night, with awful loud music and voice mixed... More

Where to start? Ambience - hot, crowded, noisy, no detectable AC. Service - want a glass of ice or glass of water? No hay problema. Walk back to the bar and get it. More chips? Don't hold you breath. Did we get what we ordered? Took them 3 tries to get one order right. Mine was in error but I... More

This is exactly what a Mexican restaurant should be - friendly, awesome food, good prices. We are frequent SoCal visitors, and we have our favorite neighborhood restaurants out in the OC...every time we go to LaTapatia (a least once a week!) it's like a quick trip to California! REAL Mexican food that real fresh, real good and real reasonable. My... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and was not let down! Many authentic dishes I've never heard of as well as well-known favorites and some basic choices for kids. They seem to do a good take out business too which might be a good option if you're in a hurry. The food took a bit to come out but it was... More

We found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and can't recommend it enough. A small family owned eatery with a wide menu of tasty homemade Mexican dishes. And do try their Sangria - it is delicious and filled with fruit. I'll be back!

Now this is authentic Mexican, very nice service and the food is great! Small and cozy so the kitchen is quick. Prices are very reasonable and menu has many great selections you will have to keep coming back!

Wow, a small quaint spot in a residential area...you might miss it if you weren't on the look out. Had lunch for two for under $20.00 affordable and it was incredibly delicious. So much better then "fast food" Mexican. Service was friendly and efficient.

This hole in the wall restaurant has the best tamales and Barbacoa tacos in Massachusetts. Besides the facade no complaints.
