Been a fan of Fajita's & 'Ritas for a long time, and it never disappoints. Definitely worth a stop in. Salsa is tasty and not spicy - so great with kids. Gotta love the margaritas!

“drinks after work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

The frozen maragitas are sensational and cheap. I had 4 of them for like 20 bucks can't beat that. Mexican food was solid and renovations were a nice touch since last time I was there. Definately a good place for group of friends or co-workers. Great bar scene and atmosphere check it out.

“Food was okay with easy location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Found this place thru ads at hotel. Good location with easy access from downtown. Food was not real spicy, but not a lot of flavor either. Staff was good. This is a casual laid back Mexican restaurant. Not many bells and whistles to the interior. Prices were pretty much normal too.

“Hidden Gem - Good Food & Cheap 'Ritas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

I have eaten at Fajitas & 'Ritas more times than I can count. I used to live in Boston and work in the Financial District and frequented this place for a quick post-work bite & drink.

Convenient to the Boston Common, Public Garden, Financial District & Theater District and walkable from Beacon Hill and Newbury Street - the location is fantastic! BUT it is hidden enough that it's never usually overly crowded or too busy to be seated fairly quickly.

The menu-style is pretty cool and I love the atmosphere. It's casual and fun but not too loud or boisterous. Have been here on dates and with groups of friends - it was an appropriate location in either situation.

If you go - get a pitcher of 'Rita (I love the mango) with a tequila floater! It's cheap and delicious!

“Good, Cheap Mexican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a great place for a hearty meal on a budget. Our party of three adults ordered "fajitas for three" and were unable to eat it all. It definitely would have fed at least four people. I will definitely return to this place!
