“Super cheap, but nothing great...”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

I'm coming to Boston visiting, and my friend who lives here drinks here a lot but doesn't eat here and now I know why.

Bartender was fun and top of things. But the restaurant was going under heavy renovations which is why maybe our food wasn't that great?


I got tacos which were fine, but not great. It was served with beans and rice. And that's literally what it was. Plain white rice and plain pinto beans. But. It was only 8 bucks... So there you have it!


Probably great for people on a budget with kids! I was just hoping for a little more flavor!

“Somewhat average”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Was a little expensive and the waitresses were mostly interested in talking amongst themselves. Food was fair.

“Great little restaurant”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed lunch at this restaurant. He had a chicken quesadilla and I had chicken fajitas. Both were excellent! The food was reasonably priced and the waitress was very nice.

“One of the best deals in town”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a hidden gem. The food has a kind of Mexican focus with a seafood background. $12 lobsters in Boston - Now that's a good price. The Lobster Roll was tasty and full of meat no filler. The fish and chips was nicely cooked, but a little bland. Blame that on the Scrod. The beer was cold. They kept the water coming for our crowd of 6 who had just come in from a tourist morning in a rare 90 degree heat wave. Fortified and rehydrated we were ready to take on Beantown once again. We'll be back.
