I don't expect to go back there again. The food was average at best. The location was convenient and server was nice, but I don't recommend their food.

Zuma is a excellent low key place to visit at Faneuil Hall. I really enjoy it because you can escape the crowd and hustle and bustle of Quincy Market. The service is always good and they are very clean there. They have excellent mac n cheese balls and great salsa. They also have very affordable, tasty tacos.

We stopped by for lunch and everyone enjoyed the meal. We started with a guacamole for the table. It was good but needed salt. The chips were tasty, they had a good selection of drinks, and there were non-Mexican options if that's not your thing. Great service and clean bathrooms, too.

Every dish is huge. Very tasty and very afortable. The ambiance is casual and loose. A great place for a good time. If you don't want the Mexican food the burgers are very delicious

My partner and I were walking around quincy market and spotted this place. We're very glad we ate here, the food was delicious! We ordered a couple of drinks each and a couple of appetizers to share. This was more than enough! The portions were generous and the appetizers were only a couple of dollars. Our waiter was friendly and... More

Last minute decision to eat here. Food was decent. Margaritas were kind of weak. Didn't wait to be seated. Wait staff was attentive and on top of things.

The food and drinks were typical, good but nothing really special. The waiter actually seemed pissed when we walked in and his attitude remained the same the entire meal. We had a large group which usually the staff want to accommodate as the tip would be large. We had drinks, apps and meals and did have a large bill. We... More

Fun atmosphere, and affordable Tex-Mex food. Enjoyed the quesadilla I ordered and it was a very big portion. Right in the heart of Boston so I would definitely recommend if you're in the city!

Zuma Tex-Mex is a Quincy Market favorite. Zuma's satisfies its clientele with Mexican-American comfort favorites. Enjoy fruity margaritas, sizzling fajita platters, overstuffed burritos and heaping plates of nachos.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
