Wonderful little Mexican eatery in Waltham that serves authentic Mexican food! Their guacamole and green sauce are so good. I had the burrito combo that came with rice, salad, green sauce and sour cream. I would come back again!

A very simple, friendly neighborhood Mexican restaurant. The margaritas a very good, We enjoyed all the dishes we had. During the warm weather you can sit outside next to a side street.

It was empty when we came in on a Tuesday night but the service was very warm. The food was excellent- proper Mexican. Very well priced.

Have been going here for many years and am always so happy to go back. Great selection, wonderful service and unbeatable value make this a true find. Have never had a bad meal so just order away and you are sure to be happy. Beer and wine are available but no cocktails.

This is a great little authentic Mexican restaurant inconspicuously located off Moody Street (Waltham's "restaurant row"). I've been here several times, both with co-workers and family.
