Very good food, but way overpriced. Ambiance is mediocre for the pricing. The wait staff was friendly and service was good.

This restaurant has been in Quincy, MA for a number of years. It has won food choice awards for it's traditional home made dishes. They make their own tortilla chips and salsa. The site has a southwestern feel inside. Great variety of food, drinks. Nice daily specials.

Definite go to. The Boston area does not have a lot of great Mexican restaurants. This is one of the best we have. Complimentary homemade salsa and chips (refillable). Awesome verde sauce. You can't go wrong with anything you choose.

As mentioned on many reviews this place has a very small bar, but then again most people head here for the very good Mexican food. Burrito's are huge, the salads are fresh and the chef's specials are usually very good. Great margaritas and friendly staff make this a local favorite, and a favorite for travelers, i've met many people in... More

I have been going to La Paloma for over 25 years. It is the best Mexican restaurant around . The menu offers variety and value. From tacos to steak tips there are great items on the menu at every price point. The weekday specials are always worth checking out. Service is also superior

Since Salsa's closed in Hingham we have been looking for a good Mexican restaurant and we found it! It was worth the wait on the weekend - but it cleared out after the early dinner rush. I am ready to go back soon to try some more of their dishes.

This is just a regular Mexican restaurant. The food was ok, a bit too much (cheese, salt, salsa) not so much authentic. The staff were all dirty and so were the table that we got sat on. No wait. The have chorizo that was the only reason why I went there on the first time, but it is very unlikely... More

Really good Mexican food. Our server was quite accommodating for our group. The chicken and cheese chimichangas are awesome, so are the chicken quesadillas. But the stuff that keeps me going back are the freshly made salsa, the guacamole, and the queso dip is an absolute must. It's so good that I always get extra order of queso dip (which... More

Neighborhood gem in Quincy, small quaint place, inexpensive with nice staff, great drinks and good Mexican food. Usually a wait on weekends but goes fast. Tiny bar area. Great to meet friends

This is hands down the best food in Quincy, and the place I recommend to everyone who asks about food in the area. Not a single person I have ever brought there was less than totally pleased with the food. The atmosphere is wonderful, the servers are nice, the food comes on time, the salsa and chips are truly one... More
