Fun atmosphere, and affordable Tex-Mex food. Enjoyed the quesadilla I ordered and it was a very big portion. Right in the heart of Boston so I would definitely recommend if you're in the city!

My friend and I work in Boston and frequent here for lunch. We have been going here for years probably about 4-6 times a year. The food is always delicious, reasonably priced, we love the atmosphere, unlimited warm tortilla chips and salsa they always have drink specials and the manager (Cody) is so professional and runs a great operation.

Unpretentious bar/restaurant in a popular area, near the Faneuil Hall. Great value cocktails and decent meal. Main course portions are big so no need for a starter. Definitely recommend a visit.

My lunch included the enchilada meal which consisted of 2 enchiladas (filling of your choice), rice, and beans for $6! Chips and salsa are complimentary. Margaritas were on special for $5. Everything was very good, including the service. Restaurant is downstairs and was a little dark. I would definitely recommend and go back.

Stopped in for lunch as we were in the mood for Mexican. Good sized portions for a great price especially given other sit down options in the area. Service was amazing - Cheryl was very nice and accommodating to our requests. Special made a margarita for my husband. Food was very good as well. For anyone who likes things spicy... More

Always like stopping by Zuma's when in town. Great selection of tequila's and margarits's. Food is very good had a grilled corn on the cob that was on the specials list that was very tasty as well as a steak quesadilla this town. The Fajita's are also very good with a decent portion size and they have decent wings also.

Decided to eat here on a whim, one of whom is a vegetarian. She had no issues finding something. I got the taco salad with chicken. The portion was huge, but there was a tremendous amount of liquid (water?) at the bottom of the bowl which left the shell soggy. The prickly pear margarita was especially delicious. The service was... More

As a local I was surprised to never have noticed this place; Although its subterranean location isn't easily seen from the craziness of Faneuil Hall it was totally worth it. Great authentic decor greets you; but the food is definitely the winner here. I've tried all the other local chains and well ZUMA is shoulders above. I had the burrito... More

Me and my other half stumbled across this little beauty one night after going out late for something to eat (most places only serve food til 10pm). The food was very tasty and exceptional value. We both couldn't finish our meals and both cost under $15 each, you get nachos brought to your table upon arrival and these are filled... More

We were hungry for sure but this place really hit the spot The carnitas and classic hard shell tacos were both tremendous. And you have to try the roasted corn on the cob. Service was great and the kids really liked it as well.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
