Fresh Food and Juice, Affordable, Casual 9/16/2007

We just got back from this place in Union Sq. and will definately be back soon! The food was made right there, fresh ingredients and was VERY tasty! I had the tamale plate (4.50) an a pork taco (2.00) and my boyfriend had a small burro (4.50, it weighed about 2 lbs.). On they way out everything had been so good I decided to try a house made juice. It was AMAZING, I had the mango and blackberry... very fresh and sweet. Total damage wth a water and soda: UNDER $15$!! You HAVE to try this place if you like mexican food, you'll NEVER go to a Qdoba or Chipotle again! Pros: Cheap, Fresh Juice and Ingredients, Quick more

Great for Catering! 9/29/2005

Roberto catered a party for us for 60 with fabulous food. He helped us choose the menu and made some off-menu veggies for us when we requested that. The chicken mole was a big hit. The food was delicious and plentiful. The price could not be beat. I sent a friend who was organizing a last minute party for 40 and Roberto catered that on a few days notice. She was also delighted with the food and service. Pros: great catering, inexpensive, delicious more

Wow 9/16/2005

Excellent Mexican food and right in the neighborhood. Not great seating or ambience, but its so cheap it's probably cheaper to eat here than cook for yourself. The people who work there are so nice and the food is simply delicious. Definitely worth checking out. Pros: Excellent food Cons: off the beaten path more

Delicious cheap eats 8/24/2005

This was singularly the BEST mexican food I have had in Boston, hands-down. Nachos with fresh onions, beans and cheese, enchiladas stuffed with grilled veggies, soft-shelled tacos-- they were all impeccable and made fresh right in front of our eyes. A hole in the wall, this taqueria comes highly recommended for good reason. Pros: Inexpensive, Delicious Cons: Basic surroundings more

Excellent food and service! 6/13/2005

Taqueria La Mexicana is where I go when I need some good home-cooking. It's the best place for tamales, tacos, chiles rellenos, you name it. I've also had Taqueria cater my organization's event at Harvard for several years now, and I am never disappointed! More than enough food of the highest quality and service is prompt! more

Don't miss this 10/18/2004

I've tried five Mexican places in the Somerville, Cambridge, Boston area and this is the best by a mile. Focus on the food and you'll be happy. Much less expensive than several others and very authentic. Take the kids too. Pros: Authentic Mexican, very inexpensive, good for families Cons: , tough decor, can be loud more

Yes!! 2/11/2003

I am also from the West Coast. I have yet to top this place. The food is great, and the price is right! You must have the chicken flautas plate! more

Good food and Friendly service

Owner Message

  • Full bar, fruit margaritas and over 30 different tequilas. The Cantina serves up authentic Mexican dishes and sides that utilize both family recipes and Boston area Chef's inspirations.

Editorial

  • As with true taquerias, Cantina La Mexicana's sauces are minimal (more like condiments, really), but that doesn't take away from savory authentic treats like tamales and chalupas. Prices are...
