Food was decent. Good salsa but not huge portions. Decent prices for area though. We ate lunch there.

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...

The number of places to eat in/around Faneuil Hall Marketplace is like sensory overload. We visited there on a very busy Memorial Day weekend, and stopped in at Zuma completely by chance. We were seated immediately, and received excellent service. The atmosphere is definitely to my liking, and our food could not have been better. The menu is, in my... More

Came for dinner with my 21 month old the complimentary salsa and chips were a big hit. Very handy you can order tacos by the piece - the shrimp taco with pineapple salsa was excellent, the brisket taco very tasty, gaucamole was great but the absolute best dish was the special of Mexican street corn - roasted corn covered in...

Stopped by Zuma Tex-Mex after spending a day touring Boston. My party of 3 was seated right away and the waiter was very accommodating of all our requests. Free chips and refills without asking. Warning! Don't order the empanadas for $2.50 , because it only comes with 1 empanada. Also, I've had much better seafood enchiladas for $13.50. Overall, I... More

I came here with a group to celebrate a friend's birthday. We made the mistake of ordering a bunch of appetizers for the table, all of which were much more spicy, salty, and cheesey than anyone really wanted. However, there was no wait to be seated on a Saturday night, and $16 margarita pitchers and bottomless chips and salsa make... More

A decent place for 1/2 priced apps during happy hour. The nachos were okay and they had a couple of different kinds but I was happy because of the 1/2 price deal. If I paid full price, I would have liked them less. The party I was with liked there drinks but I only got a soda. I'd go back... More
