Taqueria Mexico Waltham

Taqueria Mexico in Waltham has been here forever and are located on a one-way street just at the start of Moody Street. Not only is it hard to find, but parking is also very sparse and isn't helped by the construction project across the street. I never knew, but they have dedicated parking behind the restaurant.

There is a small patio outside, nice during the summer.

Stale and greasy chips arrived with two salsas. The chunky one was good and with a fair amount of heat and the smooth one was also good and spicy. That one can be used as a hot sauce.

This is the Presidente ($13.50) and comes with one Red Chile Relleno, one Green Chicken Enchilada and one Pastor Taco. The Pastor Taco was good with a pork and chili filling and was served in a double tortilla. The beans and rice were really good, both was nicely cooked and very tasty. The Green Chicken Enchilada was tasty with a tart green sauce. The Chile Relleno was inedible due to having all the seeds left in. It was also undercooked. The "salad" was a few undressed shredded lettuce leaves with a slice of tomato. Overall it was a very meh meal. The prices are OK for dinner but relatively expensive for lunch. Why doesn't more Mexican restaurants have a lunch menu?

The interior is nice and bright and the waitresses were enjoying their lunch as well. Isn't the staff meal supposed to be before the customers arrive? This really irritates me, I think it shows a lack of respect for the customers. I usually leave Taqueria El Amigo with a smile and this place with a "Why did I go back?".

A serious amount of rental apartments is going up across the street and at the corner of Main and Moody.
