Just been here whilst waiting for our flight. The food was out and out the best food we've had in Boston! So sad we saw this place on our last day! I had burrito and hubby had fajitas. The place is decorated so cool too! I could eat here every day!

We had no problem getting seated on a Saturday around 2pm for a group of 8. I don't believe they take reservations unless it's a group of 10 or more. They have a very small lot next to the restaurant but I would suggest parking in the Boston Common underground lot. This seemed more safe and secure with a nice... More

One of my favourite places I ate at in Boston. Had two meals there during my short stay because I enjoyed the food so much. I had the chicken salad which came in an edible crusty bowl, and fajita with chicken. The meals were the most affordable compared to other restaurants I visited.

Best Mexican Restaurant in Boston! I get the Nachos every time Ive ever been here they are the best nachos I have had anywhere in the world! They put plenty of toppings on them which is perfect! The Margaritas are the cheapest and best in the city! Great for an inexpensive dinner out at a central location.

The food was decent, menu was reasonably priced (especially for downtown Boston!), and overall our experience was a pleasant one. Some of the food (the salsa especially) was a little one-dimensional. Chips were good and fajita portions were generous, but could have done with a bit of additional seasoning/flavor. Margaritas were well made/strong, even for just the basic house drink.... More

We stopped here for drinks before dinner. Our waiter took our order and then came back saying the kegs were broken and they did not have any beer on tap- something he should have told us before we even ordered.

We had an early evening meal here. The food was fresh - we had quesadillas and tortillas, and it was one of the few restaurants we found that could do a real vegetarian meal. Staff were friendly and helpful and we were not rushed, even though this restaurant gets very busy in the evenings.

the restaurant was very crowded with a waiting time of about ten minutes for a table. Not a long wait and worth every minutes as it gave us plenty of time to spy on other diners plates. we settled for a steak fajitas - perfectly cooked and served on a hot sizzle plate, and dr. pepper ribs - sticky, gooey...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
