A local gem!

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!

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.

This little restaurant has very good food and is an excellent value as the portions are large. We felt it was authentic Mexican food and the service was fantastic. The food was not slathered in cheese like at other "Mexican" restaurants. There is nothing fancy about the restaurant but the food is excellent and we will definitely go back.

It's been years since I have had food of this quality. Everything was fresh and flavorful. No complaints about food or service. Would repeat back many times.

I have tried half of the menu at La Tapatia and everything is delicious, it just makes it harder to decide every time I go. It's not the biggest restaurant (less than a dozen tables) and can get reasonably crowded during lunch (never been during dinner) but if you get there a few minutes before noon you'll be fine.

We went early on a Friday evening for dinner. So glad we were early. By 8PM the place was filled. Most patrons were Mexican. That was a good sign. The food was very good and the woman who served us was delightful. We had tacos and tamales. Chile rellenos are available if you call them one half hour in advance.

Ignore the facade of this restaurant. The food is fresh, made to order, authentic Mexican food. The Guacamole is made fresh. The chorizo gordita, a hand made thick corn tortilla, was amazing. The quesadilla and ceviche is also very good! The restaurant is small with quaint tables. They have a small bar area but do not serve mixed drinks. The... More
