I have had Mexican food in Florida, New York, and Chicago and this place easily compares. Really amazing food! I would recommend anything with carnitas in it such as the torta or the tacos. The torta was amazing and came with guacamole and a jalapeño...More

The restaurant is very small with about eight counter stools; the door opens literally with inches to spare from the front counter; very cramped while in line you will be inches away from people trying to enjoy their meal. Because of this most people do...More

My husband and I stopped here on a whim for lunch. We had the best tacos we have ever had in our lives! We tried the carne asada tacos. Wish we lived close to go back. Highly recommended!!

Good place to stop after spending some time at Sam Adams brewery. Keep in mind it is a small place with no tables to speak of.

This place is so good that we build our early day around lunch. Enchiladas were exceptional again. I could fill up either chips alone but made myself stop. Even the frickin' refried beans were excellent.

Loved the pineapple soda. Small but has a few seats if you want to eat in. Food seemed well made. Enjoy.

A small local restaurant with excellent, fresh Mexican food. Everything seems fresh & authentic. We enjoyed burritos, enchiladas, tamales & tortas. Nice. Not a great space for eating in.

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
