Like other reviewers, finding good Mexican cuisine on the South Shore is harder than it should be. I stopped in to try the place with my family on a recent Saturday. There was no wait and the service was good. The food was authentic and...More

Went with friends who go every Thursday. We went in before them. They were greeted warmly. It was nice to see their longevity appreciated. Don’t go hungry, because if you do, you’ll inhale the salsa and chips. We had a variety of dishes, some vegetarian....More

El Sarape has been serving great Mexican food in the little village of Weymouth Landing for the past 29 years. This is not a big Mexican restaurant chain. Do not expect massive quantities of tasteless food. The atmosphere is cozy. The food is delicious. The...More

We have been here many times and it seems to be getting better. Four of us went here for lunch and were delighted and the seasonings and approach. The lunch menu is different and gives you some wonderful choices.

This is our go to restaurant when we want to celebrate locally. The food is alway well prepared and on our last visit our waitress was exceptional. She was attentive without hovering and had a great sense of humor.

One of the best Mexican restaurants in Boston area and especially on the south shore. From the tasty salsa which they make in house to fresh Guac, everything they make is very well prepared and tasty. We have 4 kids and 3 out of four...More

Everything that we tried (from the Beef Fajitas, Sarape and Polo Cilantro) seemed to need salt and spices. The dishes were not the most flavorful Mexican cuisine we've ever had. The chicken (that was only 1/4 thick) was served under a glob of unseasoned cilantro...More

I have been going to El Sarape since they opened about 28 years ago. The original guys were the best! Always friendly, efficient, and the food was always outstanding. Every single dish was excellent. I like the shrimp with cilantro sauce and until this visit,...More
