I have been going to La Paloma for over 25 years. It is the best Mexican restaurant around . The menu offers variety and value. From tacos to steak tips there are great items on the menu at every price point. The weekday specials are always worth checking out. Service is also superior

Since Salsa's closed in Hingham we have been looking for a good Mexican restaurant and we found it! It was worth the wait on the weekend - but it cleared out after the early dinner rush. I am ready to go back soon to try some more of their dishes.

This is just a regular Mexican restaurant. The food was ok, a bit too much (cheese, salt, salsa) not so much authentic. The staff were all dirty and so were the table that we got sat on. No wait.

Really good Mexican food. Our server was quite accommodating for our group. The chicken and cheese chimichangas are awesome, so are the chicken quesadillas. But the stuff that keeps me going back are the freshly made salsa, the guacamole, and the queso dip is an absolute must. It's so good that I always get extra order of queso dip (which... More

Neighborhood gem in Quincy, small quaint place, inexpensive with nice staff, great drinks and good Mexican food. Usually a wait on weekends but goes fast. Tiny bar area. Great to meet friends

This is hands down the best food in Quincy, and the place I recommend to everyone who asks about food in the area. Not a single person I have ever brought there was less than totally pleased with the food. The atmosphere is wonderful, the servers are nice, the food comes on time, the salsa and chips are truly one... More

I enjoyed the decorative feel of the restaurant. I ordered a honey chipotle quesadilla - it was delicious and also very large. The portions are very good in this restaurant, the prices too!

Tried to walk in to another local dining spot on Hancock Street, but could not get a seat within 30 minutes... Decided to try La Paloma on a wing and a prayer... glad we did! The parking lot was packed... GOOD SIGN #1, as was the Restaurant, GS #2! Got the last 4 top table and sat down... The menu... More

We were greeted by a cheerful gentleman and promptly seated. The waitress was efficient and ver y helpful with the menu - even bringing me a taste of the shredded beef when I asked about the preparation. Food was good. We would go back.
