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

Zuma Tex Mex has been my go to restaurant to take my friends visiting Boston for years. This place is such a hidden gem! It's easy to miss if you aren't looking for it, but once you find it you will keep coming back. You start off with unlimited chips and salsa to keep you busy while looking over their... More

Twice during the spring Zuma Tex-mex was the choice for lunch and it did not disappoint. Food is fresh and flavorful, and service was efficient. The chili is a great option for a rainy day, and the queso was enjoyed by the table of business people. Salads and tacos are generous and nicely presented...adding the house made guacamole was a...
