So this was not the BEST Mexican food I have ever had nor the WORST Mexican food. Just ok. Guacamole was decent, had a lot of onions in it and you can tell that it wasn't just made, like the way a real Mexican restaurant would do. Food was also passable, portions were pretty big - you can share a... More

Used to be a decent place but i really did not like it being so dark and dingy. Place needs a good cleaning. Turn the lights up and repair the seats that are ripped. Disappointed. I would have just paid more elsewhere

Had a girls' lunch here on a Saturday afternoon in the city. All of us were raving about what an excellent lunch we had there. If you are not looking for Zuma, you will miss it. It is on the far side of Faneuil Hall, through a doorway and down into the basement. Do get the pitchers of margarita as... More

Complimentary salsa they give you with chips when you sit down was tasty but nothing fabulous, all four of us got something different and everything was fine but nothing that would make me say wow! Don't know if I'd go back with so many options to try in the area. Nothing negative but nothing to rave about either.

We tried Zuma for the first time last night. Service was fine, food was good, and prices were good, too. I had the vegetable enchiladas, and the 7 layer dip was tried. A couple of blended margaritas - an inexpensive meal out!

Stopped in for lunch with my husband while cruising Quincy market. Guacamole burger was terrific and the menu says you have a choice of fries or a potato pancake. What a treat so I ordered one. The waitress came back to the table to tell us the cook told her that they have never served potato pancakes. Then take it... More

The service was exceptional, every person that worked there was all smiles the entire time. The food was fresh and delicious- the hot wings were super hot- but worth it! Great flavor with lots of heat. I got the fajitas and my husband got the bbq--- everything arrived hot, in a timely fashion and the prices were just right! A... More

Every time that I am in the city, I go to Zuma. The drinks are reasonably priced and delicious. But, the food is great at a fair price. Given the location, it is a really awesome value. A job well done!
