Parking: on-street; a hassle. Atmosphere: Crowded and noisy on a Saturday night. Interesting, convivial ambiance, with Mexican artifacts decorating the walls. Food: average, bland, nothing to brag about. (Although the homemade chips were excellent). Service: attentive and quick - in and out in less than an hour. Not recommended for a date, unless your hearing is excellent and you have... More

I eat here while on business in Waltham. I was great by a fresh salsa chips and sauce. The staff was very attentive and the menu has a wide choice of items. I tried a house special. It came out prompt and was pleasant to the eye. The flavors were excellent with just the right amount of heat to wake... More

What a great place!! I´ve driven past this place so many times so I decided to finally give it a shot. Its certainly a casual place, no fancy table cloths or anything. Its just a fun place to share a pitcher of sangria (there was a band playing while we were there), chat, eat chips and then chow down on... More

My wife and I always liked the place, for its food and atmosphere, but last night's experience has cause us to revise our opinion: the service was rude and totally uncaring - we didn't even have dinner. There were three couples waiting ahead of us. When tables became available, one couple was seated at a 4-person booth, two at two-person... More

I rarely leave a negative review, however because this establishment had such high overall reviews I feel it's important to share my experience too. My husband and I visited today for lunch and sat in a booth along the right hand wall. The carpeting that ran alongside it was littered with crumbs and paper and needed a good vacuuming. The... More

Waltham has its choices of Mexican food but this place is by far the best Mexican around. Authentic Mexican food, great family atmosphere. You can't beat a whole authentic meal for under 10 bucks. A must go if you like Mexican.

Never had anything but a great meal at a very reasonable price served by delightful staff. Clearly a family owned business that loves what they do. If you don't enjoy your meal here, then you don't know real Mexican food. The even have the fruit shakes. Every time I go here, I am thankful that they exist and maintain all... More

The food is... uparalleled. The 5 star grade is for the food alone though -- this is not the sort of place you go for ambiance. The neighborhood is not the best, parking is not optimal, the restaurant itself is fairly clean, the staff fairly attentive, and there is a nice little patio -- but this is not a romantic... More

Stayed in Waltham on a recent vacation to Boston. Found Taqueria Mexico online. The food is delicious - lots of choices, big portions, great staff, nice little patio at night (though as others have commented, bit of a rough neighborhood). Had the beef tongue, which was delicious (waiter brought us a small sample to help make up our minds), and... More

The food was good. They have a small outdoor seating area, which is nice. Not much in the way of drinks. I ended up getting a fruit thing that was like a smoothy and probably could have been a meal in itself (and was expensive). I'd go back.
