This is a real Mexican restaurant- family run, home made food, friendly service. We've been going for nearly 20 years. Every time it's a good value: lots of tasty food at a moderate price, washed down with beer, sangria or fruit drinks. Tonight it was chile rellenos for me - two big poblano peppers stuffed with ground meat, potatoes and... More

Food is ok. Nothing special about it. I did like it. Chances are that I won't ever go back due the the service. It was slow and almost non existent. Took 45 min to get our food. It was around lunch on the weekend and the place wasn't at half capacity. So no excuses

Wonderful little Mexican eatery in Waltham that serves authentic Mexican food! Their guacamole and green sauce are so good. I had the burrito combo that came with rice, salad, green sauce and sour cream. I would come back again!

This is a great little authentic Mexican restaurant inconspicuously located off Moody Street (Waltham's "restaurant row"). I've been here several times, both with co-workers and family. It has never disappointed. Portions are generous, so keep that in mind when ordering. However, they to provide "doggy bags" to customer whose eyes are bigger than their stomachs. I had the Banderazo, which... More
