“Different flavors for MA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Excellent creole-esque and mexican flavors. Fun place with lots of seating and very nice margaritas.

Casual place that is almost always busy.

“Crazy loud, yet good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Honestly, I could not hear a thing, after we were seated on a Saturday night around 8:15. Asked to be reseated; told it wouldn't help. Nevertheless, we endured and got our food, which was quite good. Loved the empanadas, jambalaya, cornbread and enchiladas. Just suggest you go early or late. Or wear earplugs!

“Good Food, Good Service, Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Good casual atmosphere in this place, with good food, drinks and great price. I imagine it is great for a workday lunch, and I know it is great for a casual dinner. Food portions are good and margherita's are very good. And the free chips and salsa . . . awesome.

“Good food, good value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We ate here last night after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. The menu is extensive, staff helpful and food was great. We would eat here again.

“Mexican Cajun Fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Staying just outside of Boston & not knowing where to go, we decided to try here. It's an interesting mix of Cajun & Mexican - and it works! We all LOVED our food. It tasted great, came out fast & hot. I really liked that there were a lot of things on the menu that I couldn't get anywhere else. I had the corn & black bean empanadas with a red pepper sauce & a side of jambalaya - yummo! Two slight detractions - it was very loud and the margaritas were weak. If they had these restaurants near me - I'd go here regularly.
