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.

My first visit to Zuma Tex-Mex was many years ago, and the quality and variety have been maintained, as has the value. The $5 House Margarita was a welcome refreshment on a very hot day. The chips & salsa were above average, my wood grilled chicken was delicious, and the price was right. This restaurant offers true value in a... More

The atmosphere was maybe a little too dark, but the service was good and there was a wide selection on the menu, including some vegan friendly choices.

I discovered Zuma back in 1996 when I worked and lived in the Boston area. It was the scene of many dinners and numerous after work happy hours. So, while visiting Boston this past weekend, I didn't hesitate to again drop in for lunch! Great thing about Zuma is even though it is located in the Quincy Market area, tourists... More

After strolling Faneuil hall a few rounds, we settled on zuma tex mex and had our best meal in Boston. Don't be scared that you have to go into the basement of the building! We had a... More

Great food, loads of it at a reasonable price-what's not to like! Free tortilla chips and salsa on arrival which are the best on the planet. Eaten here plenty of times and will continue to!

Food wasn't that bad. Good chips and salsa. Bathrooms very small and dirty. Service needs vast improvement. Host was friendly though. Bartender could care less about you. Tvs to watch sports. Would be nice if each tv had something different on it, but that's ok. We have been here a few times. Many drink selections. The food taste varies with... More

Went here on a friends recommendation, food and service both 1st class, tried some new Mexican food, we were all impressed with the taste and portion sizes. Only thing to let this place down is the condition of some of the furniture, but don't let this put you off. Also a great location near Quincy's market. Highly recommended

Visited early evening, fairly quiet. Good service, food was tasty and good quality. I had the chicken Burrito, my wife had Fish Tacos, both very good. Nice drinks, good value, would recommend.

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.
