Authentic Mexican in the heart of Waltham

This is a gem of a find. Truth be told I have not eaten here in a while but when I did, I felt I was actually in Mexico and not Waltham. The food is fresh and authentic and very very good.

We really loved the food was fresh and delicious. There were four people in our party and we shared a pitcher of sangria. The dining room was comfortable but could use an update. This will become one of our favorite restaurants.

Bunch of us where I work have been going to this little place for a number of years! We love the authentic food and service is always good. They never rush us out and always are happy to see us when we show up. I'm not usually very fond of Mexican food, but I do like coming to this place!... More

Was looking for a post Bentley sporting evening dinner. Had not had Mexican for a while and was looking for quick, reasonably priced meal for daughter and me. Went to Trip Advisor and found Taqueria Mexico restaurant rated quite highly at an extremely affordable price. One of the challenges with the Moody Street area has always been limited parking. It...

There is a chain restaurant on Moody Street, and there is this place tucked off on a side street on the Common. This is the place to go. Very low prices, very good food, very great service, excellent sangria! In the summer you can eat outside in the summertime. I have never had a bad meal here. Highly recommended.

Still a go-to staple for consistently yummy, down to earth authentic Mexican food in Waltham. Great value, fun and funky room

Went to the Mexican restaurant after seeing it across from the future MERC site in Waltham square and reading other trip advisor reviews. 1. I can agree on one point....No parking available. Charles St is one way with parking on one side and residences in the area. look for other spaces. 2. Not enough staff for the outside and inside... More

No kitsch, no schmaltz, no roving bands of employees singing and clapping in your ear while you’re trying to eat — just good, honest food at a decent price. My first visit to Taqueria was with a couple of long-time friends, both of whom always make it a point to eat here when they’re in town. I’m not a big... More
