This restaurant is located down a side street and is worth the detour. We ordered the requisite margaritas and fajitas, which did not disappoint on either item. The margaritas weren't too sweet or weak and the fajitas came to our table sizzling hot. They do also offer a kids menu.

Very good and reasonably priced margaritas. Ok service. Rather plain food, but cheap. Can be recommended especially if you are fond of frozen margaritas.

An excellent little restaurant. Busy, busy with a good atmosphere. Inexpensive but still a lovely meal. Would recommend.

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.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
