“Great Mexican food in Back bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Was seated immediately, since the restuarant was only 1/2 full. Waitress took my drink order in a just a few minutes. When she brought it back, the took my order. She also brought chips and 3 different dips (guac, tomatoe salsa and ??).

Ordered the chicken fajitas. In about 10 minutes they arrived with 3 flour wraps, a plate with cheese, sour cream and pico. They were excelled. The veggies were not overcooked.

“Fantastic Mexican Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011 via mobile

Just read over the last few reviews and had a way better experience that most. We had the house margaritas on the rocks...very tasty. We ordered the guacamole and were thrilled how fresh and tasty it was. I had the pork enchiladas and they were amazing. The rest of the family enjoyed their meals as well. Our server Sarah was attentive and helpful. The money..yeah it cost just under $100 for 4 (3 margaritas) but it's in the city!! I felt it was more than reasonable based on it's location. Will definitely eat there next time I'm in town!

Great service and delicous food. Great prices on food and drinks. Really enjoyed the $5 margarita special called Ireneanita. Great fresh food, good salsa and chips and a good value.
