This place was busy as usual. We've been coming here for a few years every time we visit South Boston. We prefer this restaurant to the other 'Mexican' (I use this term loosely) restaurant on the other side of SoBo - Mexico Viejo. The margaritas were super strong and the food was delicious. The only drawback was having to wait... More

We've been here several times and really like the food. We tried the fried calamari, which is an appetizer, it was very interesting and fairly good. We like the burrito el Puerto, think that's the name of it that has chorizo in it and your choice of chicken or steak, with cheese sauce on top, has loads of flavor. Sometimes... More

They spent a huge amount of $ decorating. Had thick wooden tables, and had hand carved wooden separator walls between the benchs. Food was high quality. You would find it hard to find a better Mexican restaurant. Service was good.
