This place has a young crowd, especially at the bar where it is always busy with Margarita drinkers and XX fans. The chips are always freshly made and he salsa is hot! You do not need reservations, however expect a 20 minute wait. And while you are waiting, wander across the cobblestone alley to Globe Bookstore for your travel/guidebook fix!
There are smoking and non (for faster seating, pick first available) sections. The menu is mostly mexican with some southwestern and creole items. There is a vegetarian section for all of us that do not eat meat.
The margaritas are excellent. The Golden Margarita (house) is $4.50 and the prices go up from there.
Appetizers include quesadillas, various dips like spicy queso and quacamole all around the $7 range.
If you do not fill up on the tasty tortillas chips and salsa, you can chose from a myriad selection of fajitas with chicken, steak, seafood or vegis.
Main dishes (around $12) are all over the spice spectrum from Chicken Santa Fe to Soft Tacos con Carne. All meals come with rice and beans or jambolaya. For my main course I had the Vegetarian Jambolaya ($6.95). Reminiscent of a spicy Paella and so good! Half boxed up for take away.
We couldn't even dare to attempt dessert and escaped with our take aways, so full that we promised we would never eat again.
A few notes: parking is a problem during peak hours (weekends and dinner time). There is a lot across the street but $$ are not posted. Try back roads but watch out for the one hour parking signs. Best to take the T in (red line) and walk the short distance to the restaurant.

The menu consists of the typical burritos, enchiladas, fajitas etc. and you get complimentary nacho chips and salsa when you sit down. Meals are under $10, the portions are good, and the service is fast. It’s a really lively atmosphere so if you’re looking for a quiet, romantic restaurant, this wouldn’t be the place.
