Mexican Restaurants in Somerville


Select Local Merchants

There's only one way to describe the drinks at Cantina La Mexicana: colorful. The bartending team specializes in fresh fruit margaritas, which they blend together and serve on the rocks with 30 different tequilas, instead of one tequila with 29 nicknames. They also squeeze limonada, melon, and other seasonal juices, serving up sweet counterpoints to the zesty cuisine. That cuisine is inspired by a combination of family recipes and Boston-area chefs. On command, the kitchen springs into action to cook homemade chicken mole, pulled pork, and grilled chicken with pickled cactus, pairing these entrees with rice, beans, avocado, salad, and corn tortillas on the signature "Mexican Plate." At lunch time, the focus turns to satisfying meals such as chalupas and fish tacos.

Even before you step inside, Tu Y Yo proves its authenticity. According to The Phoenix, a handwritten note on the door warns guests, “No burritos served here!” But with grasshopper tacos on the food menu, and micheladas (Mexican beer cocktails) on the drink list, the burritos will hardly be missed.
