It is really a good taste of Mexican food. It is cost effective and it is very easy to get your order.

Our food arrived cold. Food was below pedestrian. The tacos were supposed to have chili in them but they were basically full of filler....no chili. The burrito was accompanied by the saddest pile of lettuce and tomatoes I think I've ever seen. COLD. The waitress...More

Temp was cold, employees were cold, the margaritas were poorly made(or didn't use prescribed ingredients). Lunch was rudimentary. Shrimp quesadilla had a ton of onions and 4/5 shrimp. Nachos cheesy and tasty. Price was attractive, but alas, you get what you pay for. Margaritas served...More

Build your own nachos. How can that be bad? We didn't try, but the fajitas from the next table looked and smelled great too. Combined with good margaritas, you leave here feeling good!

We had lunch here with quesadillas and tacos, maybe should have had fajitas instead as the others were very boring. No flavour to the pulled pork, just average and the salsa was certainly not worth asking for more. The two margaritas were watery and definitely...More

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
