No frills about this place - it's cheap, comforting food served in heaping portions with strong drinks. Bring friends and order the XXL nachos with barbeque pork, and several drinks to wash it down with. Is this authentic Mexican cuisine? No, but the service was fast and helpful, the drinks were flowing, the nachos were cheesy, and we all left satisfied.

Lame menu - too expansive to be good at anything - combined with horrible service. We managed one round of drinks and no food for a table of 7 in an hour. Can't really rate the food because we left without being served.

I've been visiting Sunset for going on seven years now - first as a BU student, and continuing after my graduation. The food is what keeps me coming back - large portions, not too expensive, and always delicious - they have my favorite veggie burgers in Boston, and the nachos are not to be missed. However, I'm not a beer drinker, and since they make their cocktails so weak (and are not necessary cheap), I usually order wine or straight up shots. The service is usually spacey, I've had a good waiter about one in every four times I go. However, they're always polite and quick to fix issues. The recent renovation is a plus - more room, and a nice atmosphere. Have AWESOME brunch on Sundays. Have yet to get the Midnight Madness Buffet....but its great to have a place in the neighborhood that serves food till 2 am. Love this place.

Second time here with Groupon. 30 minute wait for table on Saturday might.
Not bad. Crowded and noisy with BU students. What do you expect? Food portions are generous and surprisingly good for what is basically bar food.
Beer special Scotch Ale was great! Burgers were very good Calamari was OK. Service was so so. Waitress forgot our appitizer. Great beer selection. Will go back for Burger and beer.
