Excellent unique dishes that are authentic home cooked mexican food. If you want taco and burritos with a Mariachi band this is not the place for you. If you want real mexican food that isn't greasy and has unique flavors you're in the right spot. Chicken Mole is amazing!

I have recently discovered Tu Y Yo in Needham. The food is delicious and authentic. The guacamole is made table side and served with hot chips and fresh salsa. I have had the soup, the salmon dish, the steak and chicken fajitas. The kids menu: Our big kids loved the chicken and steak fajitas. The little kids love the chicken... More

On a Saturday night, the place was about 1/4 filled, yet it took us 1-1/2 hours to get our food; 45 minutes to get appetizers, even just chips and salsa. (We were told they ran out of guacamole.) There were 6 of us, and every dish was ice cold. We sent them all back. The chef came out with his... More

Very comfortable setting, pretty, homey, friendly. We loved the tasty salsa and homemade chips. Excellent menu, wonderful choices for meat eaters and vegetarians.

I've been to Tu y Yo about half a dozen times and always enjoyed it. My husband and I went back with friends this weekend, and I was disappointed in the menu. The first item (steak) my husband wanted to order had been crossed off, but he did enjoy his second choice (also steak). I had wanted a poblano relleno... More

Everything we tried was very very tasty. Kudos for the chicken mole and the chile relleno! Table side prepared guacamole was a nice touch although a bit heavy on the cilantro. Would have given the restaurant an extra star, however, the decor is a bit lackluster with no hint of mexican atmosphere. Was this once a chinese restaurant? Friendly service.... More

Fabulous menu with what I imagine is authentic Mexican cuisine. Mole poblano like I haven't tasted since I was in Puebla during my honeymoon 25 years ago. Simple, comfortable room and really warm friendly service, but the real winner is the food -- just outstanding.

If you are looking for Tex-Mex, TU Y YO is not your ticket. This place has real authentic Mexican Food, with several family recipes Guacamole is prepared fresh at your table . Basic, but clean decor, with a full bar. Food is plentiful, extremely tasty and well priced. We live in town and have been to several times. Highly recommend.

My wife and I have eaten there several times and we brought the extended family for dinner this weekend. Rave reviews from everyone. Every dish we have tried has been delicous but we keep coming back to the chicken mole poblano and the chile relleno stuffed with shrimp as our favorites. The guacamole and margaritas are as good as they... More

Not burritos, but mole poblano and other pre-Spanish specialties. Guacamole prepared tableside and ceviche are the best in Massachusetts. Friendly service.
