Well worth every single dollar. Big portions for a small price, very tasty and extremely quick service. They bring you a menu which you fill out yourself so theres no confusion with regards to ordering as there can be. Literally less than 5 mins after them taking our sheet our food arrived. Excellent speedy service will definately be back!

Iv been there many times. it is an amazing setting fun and up beet. there Ritas are made with a heavy hand so if you cant handle strong drinks or good drinks at that i would not recommend to order one. but other than that iv never had a problem. tho they are always packed they work promptly to get you seated and take your order. with a one of a kind menu/order sheet do to the place is very loud it works wounderfuly so you dont have to yell over everyone. this also pervents any miscommunication between you to the servers then to the chefs. you get what you mark off also there portions are very generous and meals are inexpensive.

“HUGE portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

do not order one dish per person otherwise you will be taking away a week's worth of food with you!! Fajitas for 2 led to enough food to feed a small army - we took our leftovers away and gave them to a homeless person of which Boston has a huge number.

“Cheap Eats . . . and Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Tex-Mex on West Street, between the Common and Dowtown Crossing. The food is good, make no mistake about it. But it's also very reasonably priced. You won't find a less expensive chicken fajita anywhere. And there are way more onions and peppers than you can load onto the torilla. The nachos are warm and crisp. You take a pen a check off what you want on the order form at the table and they pick it up and bring it all back to you. There's a wide variety of choices and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. My wife and I had nachos with add-ons, soup, fajitas, and soda for under twenty dollars. If you signed the wall in 2007, your name is still up there. Even Boo Radley signed in.

“Fun Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is a good place for drinks and decent Mexican food with a fun atmosphere. You can draw on the walls. The food is above average but not phenomenal. If you like sangria you can get a large pitcher for about 10 dollars.
