This restaurant is on a side street near Moody and Main Street. The menu is highly varied and the prices are very reasonable. It is very quiet and relaxing. Service was excellent. Food was quite good. The quesadillas were excellent. You might need to park a few blocks away, because there is limited street parking in front of the restaurant.... More

This is one of my favorite mexican restaurants. Food is very authentic and delicious. They are good in delivering quality and quantity in reasonable price. Single dish is more than enough for a person. Staff is very friendly and keep the place neat and clean. They have outdoor seating, really good for summer lunch/dinners. Only limitation is parking space, it's... More

My partner and I tend to visit this restaurant once in a while. We love Mexican food and have always enjoyed our time here. The people are friendly and the food is delicious. I usually get the Taco Canasta which is always good. The other day I opted for the Spicy Camarones Diabla (Shrimp). It was so good. We also... More

This is not your Rick Bayless gourmet upper-crust Mexican regionally-authentic Mexican cuisine (which, don't get me wrong, I love) -- this is a simple place with nice people and really good food. For example, my last visit I had enchiladas mole, which was served with "spanish" rice and refried beans -- and the mole was superb, and the tortillas were... More

Taqueria Mexico is tucked away on Charles Street about a block off of the restaurant-replete Moody Street in Waltham. The atmosphere is colorful and vibrant and very reminiscent of little eateries in Tijuana. The service is friendly, if a bit slow. The food is outstanding: the tortilla chips and salsa served as an appetizer are both home made, as is... More

Homey, family atmosphere, beautiful smile awaited us inside. Have been a customer since 1989 and always an enjoyable experience. The menu has specials, and something for everyone. Privately owned with personal service, not a chain, - the food is great, fresh, and with the atmosphere, puts you in a Mexico mindset. We had pork mole and lamb burrito - the... More

Very solid good Mexican food, everything fresh and made from scratch. Util recently, it was at Mexican prices, but those went up recently. Still very affordable.

We enjoyed our dinner at Taqueria Mexico. There are lots of choices on the menu for omnivores and a reasonable selection for vegetarians. The plates were loaded with food that tasted good. Very reasonably priced. Pleasant waitstaff.

I've been going to the Taqueria Mexico for many years and am never disappointed. This is a quite casual restaurant and always very busy because it has a great reputation among a range of customers -- foodies (who appreciate the authenticity of the food), students (who appreciate the reasonable prices), and latinos/latinas (who appreciate the home-style cooking). There is a... More
