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

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.

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.

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

Authentic, Mexican. This little tiny, hard to find restaurant is such a hidden gem. The salsa and chips are the best evah! Order anything off the menu and you'll be pleased, but the daily specials are worth the trip.

Awesome place tucked away in a hidden area of Waltham, although that is changing rapidly with the redevelopment of Waltham's Central Square. Come here for the best Mexican food in all of Greater Boston, soak in the festive atmosphere (complete with a mariachi band), and if you are like me and have a dog, enjoy the dog-friendly patio area with...
