My son and I stopped in for lunch and I was looking forward to my favorite meal there, Chilies Rellenos. I had been making this meal at home and understand the effort it takes to make them right and had duplicated the texture and flavor I savored from this restaurant. Imagine my disappointment when they came soggy and not warm... More

We love coming here. The staff is friendly and it feels "family-owned." They all speak English, but my husband enjoys speaking Spanish to them. Parking is on the street, so sometimes we walk a block or so, but the food tastes authentic and prices are reasonable. My mom is from Arizona, where she has her pick of Mexican restaurants. We...

This is a small place on a one way street with no parking lot so you will have to make an effort to eat here. Inside are booths and tables, outside there are a few tables. Normally I would chose to eat outside, but on the very hot day that we visited, the air conditioning was important. You'll find a... More

Polite server, food served timely, authentic atmosphere (Telemundo on TV quietly playing the Olympics, thick glass soda bottles).

If ever in Waltham (or Boston for that matter) this is one of the Mexican Restaurants you must make a stop. There are plenty of Mexican Restaurants but only a few great MEXICAN restaurants in Mass and Taqueria Mexico is one of them. The staff is very pleasant and the wait is not long especially since they serve you a... More

I have been eye balling this place for some time now and decided to go during lunch. I got the Tres Queso Enchiladas and also a Chicken Tamales to go. The service was very friendly, the food great, and the price decent. The parking is horrible but so is most of Waltham so that should not dissuade you from this... More

My husband, son and I were pleased to discover the delicious fresh Mexican food once we got past the unassuming facade. This quaint little restaurant has a rather extensive menu and a comfortable and modest atmosphere with good service and friendly staff.

Visiting this little gem last night for the first time. Everything tasted great, really authentic (home made nachos and dip as a free nosh to start) and a wide variety of choices. Chicken with cilantro - spicy, with the right amount of kick. Really great mole sauce. But, the best was the tongue taco. I've never had such moist and... More

I've found myself in Waltham twice in the past sixth months and I'm always a little puzzled about where to dine, especially since I prefer local restaurants to chains. I took a chance on this restaurant & was pleasantly surprised. The food was well made & flavorful. The portions were large & reasonably priced. Good selection of beer too. Just... More
