Excellent unique dishes that are authentic home cooked mexican food. If you want taco and burritos with a Mariachi band this is not the place for you. If you want real mexican food that isn't greasy and has unique flavors you're in the right spot....More

Fabulous menu with what I imagine is authentic Mexican cuisine. Mole poblano like I haven't tasted since I was in Puebla during my honeymoon 25 years ago. Simple, comfortable room and really warm friendly service, but the real winner is the food -- just outstanding.

Not burritos, but mole poblano and other pre-Spanish specialties. Guacamole prepared tableside and ceviche are the best in Massachusetts. Friendly service.
