You will probably have to wait to get a table this restaurant in Harvard Square but believe me, it is well worth the wait.

The margaritas are among the best in Boston and the food is terrific. Not only do they have the staples you'd expect at a Mexican restaurant, but also great spicy cajun catfish, fish tacos, and other off the beaten path favorites. They give you a ton of food and you will leave fat and happy.
