We are regulars at this place and have been for a few years. It's classic Tex-mex with a bar. Staff are great with families with kids. Food is average, but the fast service makes up for mediocrity. It is such a good location that I wish the food were a bit better...

The venue seems a little worse for wear and the food is below average. The service was friendly, however.

U get what you pay for in a good way. Good portions/quality/service/TVs/cold beer. Not sure what you expect from a chain and given convenience and location!

My family and I dined here Friday night. Short wait for a table. Food is solid. Basic Mexican, nothing fancy... great for noisy families who don't want to worry about disturbing others! We will return.

It's very, very average. Food is standard American Mexican-bland, predictable, middle-of-the-road. Service is highly variable-some servers are very talented, enthusiastic and knowledgable. Others....not so much. Drinks are undistinguished-not cheap or wildly overpriced, but mostly unmemorable. The location, on a busy main thoroughfare near a hotel and in a densely-populated area, drives a lot of traffic. But, do not confuse crowded... More

My family comes here frequently because it's fast and family friendly. The servers are also very personable. The food is solid TexMex. Especially solid given limited options for Mexican in the Boston area.

I came to this restaurant as part of a company outing. In an attempt to be somewhat healthy, I ordered the Chicken Jalisco Salad, The greens were fresh and the mint dressing on the side was delightful! The quantity of grilled chicken was more than generous; I had trouble finishing it, but it was so good that I ended up... More

I will start by saying that the wait staff here is excellent. Friendly and professional. The decor is awesome! Hand carved and hand-painted booths with different Mexican scenes. Tiles from Mexico made from terracotta with beautiful and damned old paintings on the front. The menu is vast. The food is fresh and homemade. Excellent. Reasonably priced. We will return, if...
