“Lively Eats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This restaurant has a decent selection of basic Tex-Mex dishes that are well prepared. The Margaritas are very good as well. Always busy but being in Harvard Square it figures.

“Great Mexican food at amazingly good prices.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Always packed, cheerful decor, noisy in a good way. Great food, fast service. Go early as there are long waits for a table later.

“Good, but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

i eat here often. The prices are reasonable and the food tastes good to me. Nothing special. But a comfortable place. Good place to bring kids because it is already incredibly noisy.

Free Nachos and great Margaritas. The service was superb! Prices are very fair (classic margarita about 6$). A nice place to go.
