Has anyone tried El Mexicano in Marlboro MA?

I've seen ads for this place alleging "100% real Mexican food" but I'm wary. Anyone tried it yet?

      Or the one on main st in the center? I have been to that one several times. Its ok but nothing special

      1. re: hargau

        The ad says 67 Mechanic St, Marlboro - is that the center? I'm not too up on my Marlboro streets :)

        Oops! Just checked MapQuest - it appears to be at the corner of Mechanic & Lincoln, so it may be the place Lilibet's talking about.

          Chowcat -

          That's the place... on the left hand corner going south on Mechanic. I work close by, but haven't heard the lunch crowd mention it yet.
          Will keep my ears open.

            Ok i know the place now. Best to visit before night fall in that neighborhood!

              Yes, not a very savory location....but a bit better now that Bert's is gone. The clientele shifted up to the Cozy Cafe on Lincoln!

        If this is run by the same people who run El Mexicano Jr. in Manchester NH, then the food is great.
