The line is well worth it. The food is made right in front of you and is excellent. I've tried half the menu and never had a bad meal here.

The quality and freshness is consistent. The best Mexican around. I happened to run into the owner when a staff party was being held and told him how much we need a sit down restaurant for Tenoch in Medford Square. They must not want to mess with a good thing, but really?????

I love the sandwiches here. I always get the veggie torta but I hear the others are good as well. The line can be long and kind of slow so I try to go during off hours.

Tasty horchata in two varieties, chocolate and original! I had never had one before, it's a tasty creamy sweet drink. Also, the food was spiced really well.

I visited Tenoch about ten times this year. On one occasion, my wife had me drive 90 minutes out of our way so we could get Tortas and Burritos for a 450 mile drive. For bread lovers, try a tortas. We have tortas in Virginia but nothing compares to the bread from Tenoch. I really like the carne asada and... More

Great sandwiches and tacos. They serve beer and wine. Parking can be difficult, but there is lots behind the drug store.
