We stopped in for an appetizer and drinks before heading to a show. The drinks were fresh and tasty, and the nachos were plentiful. Atmosphere was fun, and the location was perfect, albeit a bit touristy.

First time in Quincy market, Boston. Were looking for some light brunch and a drink. This place was just right! Had some issue though with one of the waitresses, but beside it - no other complaints. Watch for the specials :)

Stopped by before the Bruins game. The two cocktails we had were fresh and delicious. Our bar tender was lacking personality, but delivered the best nachos we've ever had. The burrito was equally as good. Everything was going great until we saw a mouse scurrying around the restaurant!

Dropped in for a spot of lunch and some margaritas while shopping in Quincy Market. Very good nachos (very large plate-almost too much) and wings. Great drinks, Mot to pricey. Friendly service, good location.

Just OK The salsa was not true salsa. It tasted like sweet marinara sauce. When we inquired about a hotter salsa...we were given a bottle of hot sauce WHAT!?!?! Margarita were good BUT for the size...priced too highChili con queso was average...tasty floury more than cheesy. Mahi taco was very tasty. Service was with too much attitude and not enough...

I dined here alone after arriving in Boston the day prior. I was seated in the rear of the restaurant at a relatively quiet period. I ordered a cocktail while I was reading the dinner menu. During this time I noticed several small mice running around in the restaurant. I quickly alerted a waiter who was quite dismissive and told... More

I guess the place's name tells the tale, but we expected more. It feels like a sports bar with some tables on the side. The food was average with a limited selection of 'Mexican' items and the service was slow.

I got the tacos here, and was expecting a normal sized taco that you would get at any other restaurant. Instead I got a very small, tapas sized taco with literally one piece of chicken in it. It was delicious, I just wish there was more of it. For the price I paid I expected a normal serving of food... More

Wow what a place! I don't normally go for cocktails but the pomegranate one was awesome. Actually most of the drinks made were really delicious. The staff were fun and the atmosphere was lively. I was actually there in August 2015. Can't wait to visit in 2017

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
