Great Enchiladas & excellent service

I've eaten here three times now and each time it's been consistently good. Last night we started with the cheese which was delicious. Then I had the enchiladas poblano and my husband has the fajitas. Mine was outstanding. The mole sauce was what really made it. My husband's meal wasn't quite as... read more

When we come to Boston we always go to Casa Romero. The decor brings back happy memories of Mexico and Central America. But most of all is the food! Their signature dish Puerco Adobado en Chipotle y Naranja is one of our all time favourites. Their Margaritas are the very best. The staff are always friendly and attentive. I recommend... More

For those who wish to explore beyond the predictable boundaries of Tex-Mex, Casa Romero is the perfect portal to Mexican fine dining. The dishes are more reflective of what you might find in Mexico City's Zona Rosa and are a delight to the palate. Located part way down a Boston alleyway, and down a short flight of stairs, the restaurant... More

My wife and I were recommended and had a great evening here. Not easy to find but worth the trip as this is great well cooked and presented Mexican food. The portions are fine but not so big you are put off eating - not over spiced but really tasty Service was efficient and very friendly, and there was a... More

We dined here with another couple on Cinco de Mayo. Our reservation was for 6 PM and we were informed that we would have to leave by 7:30 PM. Normally that is not something I would want to be told, but considering this is probably their busiest day of the year, it was understandable. Considering how busy it was, our... More

First of all, great service. we had perfect margaritas, which were perfect! the chips are homemade and delish, the salsa just enough spice and the guac, also... More

Told it was the best Mexican food in Boston. If so, I'm sorry for those in Boston unless you are ok with below average flavor. Plus well below average service. Had to ask for water for our table 4 times. Had to ask for a glass of tea for one of our party 3 times. Ordered guacamole that was never... More

Brought guests here who don't get too much exposure to Mexican cuisine. This restaurant did not disappoint! The fish taco was a little soggy so definitely not something one could eat while standing which is what it was designed for. The entrees were delicious. The corn chips were not at all salty which was what we experienced on our last... More

Tasty and unusual Mexican fare but small portions (no left overs here). The early bird special is the way to go ($22 for 3 courses). Otherwise it's pricey for Mexican, but not for the area. The back alley entrance made it feel like you were in on some secret. However, I never got past the smell of cat urine (?)... More
