Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 7, 2018

We traveled to the Polish Club to see a great band, The Verge in Gardner. We wanted an early dinner, and one in our party is vegan, so we phoned in advance to be sure a vegan meal could be prepared. Even after re-stating, twice, the request for no dairy, the beans cooked in advance included melted cheese. The vegetables were not fresh. The burrito/fajitas were fair - - nothing was too exciting. The Margaritas were quite WEAK. Sadly, we won’t be returning.

We had planned to eat at the Gardner Ale House, but there was a lengthy wait - on a Tuesday night. My husband remembered eating here many years ago (perhaps under a different owner?) We were seated right away by a very nice hostess and the friendly waitress came right over with chips & salsa which were good. We each ordered the ribs. They were moist and meaty, but my husband thought they were better than I did. Mine were a little fatty. The salads were great and the waitress brought more chips without being asked. If we go there again, I'd probably order the salmon or a Mexican dish. The atmosphere was nice (if a little loud) and we'd go back without hesitation.

Just Meh. Never as good as you want it to be but always better than fast food, thoug definitely more expensive. Certainly better hispanic Foods available elsewhere. Moe's and Xtapa come to mind.

Great margaritas, and food.
Atmosphere was impressive, and they have live music!
Friendly staff, and the place was packed even after a major winter storm.
Had the 5.00 happy hour food special, a prime rib taco.
Best taco I've ever had.
