“Almost Mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The restaurant was clean and the staff friendly, Our server did everything she could to make our visit pleasant, but the owner has never been to a really good Mexican Restaurant. The food was bland. The chef does not know the difference between salsa and pico de gallo. The red sauce had too much chili powder. Can anyone say boring?

“Very Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Nothing terrible about our experience. First thing we noticed when we stopped for lunch was there were no lunch specials. You had to pick from the main menu and pay dinner prices. In the competitive field of lunch dining, they should have lunch specials at lunch prices. Also, no tortilla chips provided prior to the meal though many Mexican places now offer that. Service was very non-existent, I think they only had one waitstaff on and there weren't many people there for lunch. Very unimpressed with the meals too. It wouldn't take much to be average. We will likely not visit again and would not recommend.

“update to my last review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Its been a while since we have been to Hermanos. I have seen the mediocre reviews recently and wondered what went wrong. We have been patrons there for over 20 years. The food has always been terrific. While some feel this its not authentic Mexican food, they are mistaken. This firmly represents Sinaloa cantina style food. You can go to any cantina in most small Towns in Sinaloa Mexico and get similar fare. The food has always been fresh and quality and still is today. While prices are higher, they are everywhere. We had garlic chicken nacho a and they were as good as always. Service has always been relaxed and not rushed. The food is NOT Texmex. Never has been. As I live in Arizona now, I know Mexican and southwestern food. Hermanos does a good job, best in New England. IMHO.

“No GO!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I have given this restaurant three chances, which is all I give any restaurant. All three times it was very disappointing, and once I was even sick a few minutes after leaving. The food is mediocre & very bland, the service was poor and the drinks are small and lack any flare. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

“Really Nice Nacho Salad!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is our second trip to Hermanos Cocina Mexicana for Lunch.
I tried the "special" Gazpacho soup of the day and it was good. Nice fresh ingredients, chunky with a nice flavor. We both had the Nacho Salad and really enjoyed every bite! It is a layer of Blue Corn Tortilla Chips and sliced jalapenos, covered with melted cheese and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, Spanish onions, scallions, black olives, cilantro, garlic dressing, guacamole and sour cream. They also provide fresh Red and Green Salsa. As others have said the Décor is plain but the place is bright and clean. Service was a bit slow, a bit surprising since they weren't very busy but our waitress was very pleasant. We would go back just for the Nacho Salad! At $8.99 it is about the best deal on the menu for the amount of food you get. Prices are high on most of the menu items but the food is fresh.

Even though the food we had was good, I rated this as Average due to the prices, paid parking and slow service and they charge you for Salsa and Chips, not free like most Mexican Restaurants.
Not really any "Luncheon Specials" on the main menu, there were Specials of the day which were ALL barbecue of some sort or another, not what I come to a Mexican place for.

Tip: Paid Meter parking at lunch outside the Restaurant so bring change.
