Last minute decision to eat here. Food was decent. Margaritas were kind of weak. Didn't wait to be seated. Wait staff was attentive and on top of things.

The food and drinks were typical, good but nothing really special. The waiter actually seemed pissed when we walked in and his attitude remained the same the entire meal. We had a large group which usually the staff want to accommodate as the tip would be large. We had drinks, apps and meals and did have a large bill. We... More

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

Zuma Tex-Mex is a Quincy Market favorite. Zuma's satisfies its clientele with Mexican-American comfort favorites. Enjoy fruity margaritas, sizzling fajita platters, overstuffed burritos and heaping plates of nachos.

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.
