Great food and service at reasonable price. They have bar and big dining area. If you are for Mexican food, this is the place to go while you are at Woburn, MA.

We were staying at a nearby hotel, within walking distance. The food was good. Good selection on the menu. We came when it wasn't crowded, so we didn't have to wait long. The amount of food was way too much, so we took some home!

I come here every once in a while when I crave Mexican food. Good prices for the amount of food you get. Large menu. Love the free chips and salsa.

The chips, salsa and guac are great! The Margs are very good. The service is decent. The pricing is good but the food is just average. The Mexican is not fully Mexican it's a blend with Cajun. The mouse that ran under our table as we were getting ready to leave was a bit of a shock.

Had an excellent chicken taco lunch with perfectly grilled veggies & rice. Service was lightning fast to ensure you get back to work in record time. Highly recommend for the busy professionals.

The food is good and the prices are very affordable. I gave this review three stars because the service is slow. The waiters and waitresses are not very attentive. This restaurant only offers hot salsa, so if you like mild or medium you're out of luck. I suggest that you ask for extra water and napkins when you order your... More

Comedy of Errors!! We went for a family lunch on a Saturday. Chose to sit on the outside/ supposedly porch like area. The service was awful, we waited for someone to take our orders. She took our order but then came back 15 minutes later to say she lost the slip and took our orders again. Meanwhile no drinks yet....... More
