Casual Mexican in the Burbs

This is a small restaurant on a side street in Waltham. We were able to sit outside on a small patio on a beautiful evening. The "Mexican Plate" was very good, and plenty of food. I'm not a fan of "refried beans" but most dishes come with them. The rice was excellent. They only serve Beer and... read more

This is a cute little place on a quiet street where you wouldn't expect to find a restaurant. We ordered take out, but the place was packed at 930pm when I grabbed the food. Wife had beef enchiladas and I had a carnitas burrito. Price was right and I was optimistic. My first concern was that when I entered the... More

I was traveling through town and like to stop at local places. The first waitress was young and quite nice. The one that took over was old and very grumpy. I was dining alone and kept to myself. She was very sharp with me even though I was polite to her. Once I finished my meal, I did ask for... More

We were able to enjoy their outdoor patio on a beautiful summer night. The service was terrific, with a little Spanish added in the mix for fun and the food was very good...in fact much better than your typical Tex-Mex restaurant, and, the homemade chips and salsa keep magically reappearing. Great take.

My wife and I went here again yesterday. We loved it last time and weren't disappointed this trip. The decor leaves room for improvement but, it has a great relaxed feel and terrific food. I've now tried two different meals and enjoyed both. I sure we'll become regulars.

Went here once and was not impressed. We were 4 adults and 2 children. It just wasn't the kind of Mexican taste I was looking for but judging by all the great reviews, I may need to refine my tastes. I would venture here again to have another try!

Don't let the exterior turn you off. The interior is nothing to talk about either, but the food is authentic and as Mexican as you can get around Boston. I have tried everything from the Chicken burritos to tacos and they were all great. Ordered a dish with Mole sauce once, only to find out that Mole sauce is not... More

This was one of those great finds in an unexpected location. Casual dining, great sangria, and all for a fantastic value. Will be back soon.

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.
