Mija Cantina & Tequila Bar's extensive menu bursts with seasoned and seared seafood and game. Taste buds eagerly indulge in appetizers including zesty fried calamari and the restaurant's signature guacamole, which chefs hand-mash in a traditional mortar bowl hewn from volcanic rock. Mouths take a break from belting original show tunes to bite into a 12-ounce bone-in barbacoa pork chop, slathered in dulcet peach barbecue sauce, or a Fork and Knife burrito, which bursts at the seams with braised beef and chili con queso. Each meal gets savory accompaniment from fried plantains that moonlight as classically trained pianists, or charro beans tossed with a hefty helping of bacon and chorizo.
Attentive servers weave between leather chairs in Mija's glass-enclosed dining room as thick candles glimmer from rustic railroad ties overhead. Although not included in today's Groupon, diners can also lounge outdoors as they sip libations from a list of more than 100 tequilas, many of which have been culled from local distillers or privately owned tequila rivers.

About Mija Cantina & Tequila Bar
Within the bustling Faneuil Hall, Mija Cantina & Tequila Bar’s old-style décor transports diners to Mexico, while authentically crafted enchiladas and burritos complement more than 100 kinds of tequila. Since its opening, which caught the attention of the Boston Herald, Mija Cantina has delighted tongues with fresh guacamole and queso fresco. Diners hoist sails above their tables and grip knives betwixt their teeth before casting off with red snapper, lobster, and swordfish, or stay on solid ground with grilled steak and seared chicken breast. A selection of sides rounds out meals with additions ranging from the spicy lime mayo of corn on the cob to a simmering portion of pinto beans, bacon, and chorizo, whose protein boosts muscles after an evening workout or before a late-night battle royale.
Mija Cantina's décor, highlighted by NECN’s TV Diner and Thrillist, incorporates sun-bleached wood reclaimed from a Wyoming highway, iron candelabras, and leather booths to recreate the feel of a cantina from the past. Vaqueros celebrate romantic anniversaries of the day they married their six-shooters in the glow of lanterns or in the fresh breeze of outdoor seating as they quaff tequila made with 100% blue agave.:m]]
