We traveled to the Polish Club to see a great band, The Verge in Gardner. We wanted an early dinner, and one in our party is vegan, so we phoned in advance to be sure a vegan meal could be prepared. Even after re-stating, twice,...More

We had planned to eat at the Gardner Ale House, but there was a lengthy wait - on a Tuesday night. My husband remembered eating here many years ago (perhaps under a different owner?) We were seated right away by a very nice hostess and...More

Just Meh. Never as good as you want it to be but always better than fast food, thoug definitely more expensive. Certainly better hispanic Foods available elsewhere. Moe's and Xtapa come to mind.

Great margaritas, and food. Atmosphere was impressive, and they have live music! Friendly staff, and the place was packed even after a major winter storm. Had the 5.00 happy hour food special, a prime rib taco. Best taco I've ever had.

This place knows how to cook vegetables - they are abundant and crisp and well-spiced. We were disappointed in how rundown the facility has become - the women's restroom was very shabby, and the outside looks dumpy. The Mexican food is still excellent. I had...More

Nice, friendly staff. Some of the food was good - fish tacos for example - the rest of what we had was barely acceptable, soggy baked potatoes and "ketchupy" reheated ribs... Don't think I'll be going back anytime soon!
