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.

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.

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...
