Authentic Mexican

Delicious, authentic Mexican food! I will never eat at Margarita's after coming here. The food was fresh and oh so good. The outdoor patio is perfect in the summertime and they even have a mariachi band on some nights (I think Thursday and Fridays).

Food was ok but I didn't think it was all made for real.nothing exceptional. The food order came a bit to fast, to me it was pre-cooked. Drinks were overpriced for what you go. Atmosphere was good. Other places I'd go to. Nothing bad though just better places around.

I was taken by a friend to this restaurant down a small side street. You have to know it to find it. After a long wait for a table we had good Mexican food. Indoors is loud, outdoors is more quiet. Live music by a mariachi band added more fun, more noise and more Mexican atmosphere. I'd go back!

I really wanted this place to be better, but our meal was really just okay. Everyone was friendly, but the food wasn't anything special. Nothing was wrong, just really average for the price. I love a good hole in the wall place where the quality of the food matters more than everything else, sadly for me this wasn't it. They... More

Food was delivered hot and relatively quickly for lunch. Service was non existent though after that so we got thirsty. Staff was friendly though and parking is on the street.

Great restaurant down a side street - inexpensive, food is really tasty. Fresh chips, flavorful salsa. We had burritos and enchiladas. Very nice. Outdoors is a bit more pleasant than inside, at least in the summer. Service was good but staffing is a bit limited. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

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

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 wine, but the... More
