It's easy to miss. You have to look for the banner. The place was packed. I didn't think we'd get in but we did. My family and I were there for our last night in Boston on Saturday. I wish we would have gone sooner. We enjoyed our dinner and our mango margaritas were delicious. Our server, Walter, was fantastic,... More

We ate here one evening after walking the Freedom Trail. We wanted somewhere near Quincy Market and found this place slightly more tucked away. The restaurant is huge and was very busy, but despite this we were seated right away and service was fast and friendly. The decor and atmosphere were both good. After good tortilla chips and hot salsa,... More

Considering the area, you might expect this to be a tourist trap, but it isn't. Excellent tex mex food, particularly the BBQ specialities and service was prompt and friendly. Would definitely return.

Wow, few people were in the place on a Saturday afternoon in July; first clue. Should have left then. We asked if after the World Cup game between Brazil and the Netherlands ended if they could put the Orioles - Yankees baseball game on. We had been there about an hour and were in fact getting ready to go when... More

Been here twice. Good margaritas and reasonably tasty Mexican food. Good value for what it is and atmosphere is friendly and not too crazy. Bar staff are great. Will return.

When in Boston, DO NOT go to Zuma Tex Mex at Faneuil Hall. We came up from Baltimore to enjoy the city of Boston, support Boston's tourism and economy, experience some of Boston's cuisine and just enjoy the city. We and had a great time at Fenway Park, we've eaten at several excellent restaurants, done some "touristy" things, and really... More

My husband has been coming here since he was a kid, and it is a go to for us whenever we are in town. Lunch, dinner or late night, the food is consistent and authentic. Having family in the south west, we feel this place definitely holds up to the real deal. If you're looking to get a pitcher of... More
