Service
 
For “reasonably priced” Mexican cuisine ranging from “quality” standards to “not your daddy’s” regional dishes, these full-service stops (which started with the South End “hole-in-the-wall” ) are a “required visit” ; some say that you may have to “flag down” servers, but add margaritas or cervezas to the mix and a “fun night” is all but guaranteed.

I am hesitant to add a good review because it's such a gem I don't want it to be over populated but my experience last night was too good to keep to myself. Shrimp on top of avacado salad was amazing. Great staff and selection of amazing authentic meals.

The food was absolutely delicious! Money well spent and staff was very attentive. Quick service and great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and will return next time in Boston.
