“Meh”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

So I used to LOVE this spot. But now it is only okay. The margaritas are still good, strong and yummy!!!! You can order them in the litre and many different flavors and the price is decent.
The food is just lacking. Very little flavor. Usually you want spicy flavor, especially for mexican food. And it is quite pricey. Like $11 for a burrito. You could go to Qdoba and get two more delicious burritos....so sad. Used to really like this place!

“Affordable food, good atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

The food is well priced, and although it's not innovative or especially amazing, it is pretty good. Murals and bright colors give the space a good vibe.

“Don't go with high expectations and you should be okay.”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

We went to Frajitas & Ritas celebrating a family member's birthday before a trip to the theater. We told the waiter about the birthday but they do nothing to help you celebrate. Drinks were good, tequila wings also very good but the rest of the meal was just okay. Table is covered in white paper and they encourage you to write on it while you wait. Restaurant was not crowded but service was very SLOW. We had to keep reminding wait staff of our order. If you go for the drinks and to enjoy the company you are with, you will not be disappointed. If you expect five star service, go someplace else.

“Average Tex-Mex food in Downtown Boston”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

Restaurant serves a combination of Tex Mex and Bar B Que as well as drinks that are reasonably priced. The location is central (very close to Boston Common) but the food is at best average and boring. The fajitas are flavorless with the meat just thrown in with the green peppers and onions. Even the salsa is plain and does not have much going for it. The maragaritas, however, are great and priced very reasonably, Overall, this is a place where you go to have drinks and then go someplace else to eat. Lots of great restaurants on closeby Newberry Street and Boylston Street.
