Thanks for a great night. Mary Lou made a great Primo at the second floor bar and our waiter who we have had before was very hospitable. Thanks again!

Food was good. The guacamole is some of the best I've ever tasted. Drinks were average, Overall this restaurant is good but not great.

We went for dinner - were sitted upstairs. The decor of the restaurant is very nice, Mexican and modern at the same time. However, maybe there was a bit too much light for dinner time... And given the very nice decor of this Mexican restaurant, having those big-screen TVs sports bar style everywhere was a downer. Also, no background music :(. The food was good. The appetizers were delicious (empanadas, tuna tartare, quesadilla). The main dishes were tasty, just not too Mexican though, :(. But tasty nonetheless. Overall, it's a good place for gatherings, very spacious; we will return.

I went to Temazcal in Burlington for the first time for my birthday with my best friends. We could not have had a better time! Food was great, drinks were strong, and I got a free dessert! I will certainly be back. As far as room for improvement, I would recommend that everybody who serves tables and/or greets guests be able to speak English. I had asked for some hot sauce, and the lady had no clue what I was saying, and we had to wait for our main waiter (who was awesome) to return and get it for the table.

Service was terrible. Waited for our food for an extremely long time which is tolerable if you have a drink. Food finally arrived and I was only drinking water and ran out. Other folks manager and other wait staff came and cleared off our plates and no one noticed we didn’t have water and our waiter finally came and asked if we were all set. We have kids and rarely get to go out just my husband and I. Disappointed.

Love the place and service. But just hope they had more vegetarian options. There are hardly one or 2 things that we could eat. So if we do plan to go back I would think twice.

We have tried this place over half a dozen times and it just keeps getting worse. The service is bizarre. We had dinner reservations for 3 and got seated at a cocktail table! The table could barely hold our glasses and plates, way too tight to dine comfortably. The bar couldn't get drink out in a timely way and they really were not that good when they arrives. The server was distracted and not attentive or gracious. All in all this place is overpriced and under performing. I'm female and was treating and the server let the check for the guys even though I had been the one making the reservation and was clearly paying! Bad form....

Great setting and atmosphere; a little soundproofing would be helpful. It was 20% full and very loud. Chips and salsa assortment were delicious; pork quesadilla was a little oily and had too much cheese. Looking forward to visiting in the evening to sample some Margaritas.

LOVE the Lynnfield location, but Burlington experience was awful. Food was just "ok". One member of our party had to return her meal twice (first time was ice cold, second time her order came out wrong). She opted not to eat a meal that night. Personally, my meal came out way overcooked (and obviously very deep fried). I didn't say anything - just ate the sides. I informed the server that I had a seafood allergy and asked for the chips not fried (Lynnfield location bakes them for allergies and brings personal salsas to avoid cross-contamination). He brought out same batch of fried chips as other basket, and no side salsa for me. Again, I didn't say anything because he was oblivious and was obviously not trained well; my friends enjoyed them. Manager DID come over to apologize to my friend who didn't eat and offered a free dessert. Won't be in any hurry to go back to this location.

Service was horrible. Waited 20 minutes to be acknowledged by server. After taking the order only came back after we were done and had been waiting for another 20 minutes.

Come here often, sometimes it’s great, if you get a good server, otherwise it’s regrettable.

All the food we ordered was very good. The restaurant must’ve had the air-conditioning on, as we were all sitting eating dinner with heavy winter coats on. It was beyond freezing. The other problem we had was when we ordered cocktails and dinner but the food came out before the cocktails. It took forever to get the cocktails. Kind of reverse ordering normal restaurants

we wanted to sit in a quiet place so we could sit and enjoy our company - the bar patrons were 3 deep and right beside our table - could not hear our friends at our table - our waitress was behind the bar and never came over to ask how our meals were - the food was delicious but the noise level was unbearable.

First of all, we had an amazing waiter--Melvin, I think his name was.....perfect amount of attentiveness and information. The guys had the corn chowder and declared it the best they had ever tasted. Great tequila selection and good wine choices, reasonably priced. We had the guacamole--really fresh and delish! with chips and three dipping sauces--soo good and flavorful. The tacos were a hit and the bean & rice were notably fresh and yummy--not smushed and mashed. There was a vegan option--so good--veggies layered with corn tortillas and a great red sauce. No room for dessert! We sat in the booths next to the bar, so not QUIET, but was cozy Did not look upstairs, where there seemed to be a larger dining area. The bar was hopping by the time we left.

The service was slow. The chicken enchilada was very spicy despite asking for the sauce on the side. Also the fish tacos were very spicy. The waitress too a long time to bring the bill and our credit cards back.
Our sons fajitas arrived without any wraps to wrap them in.
