Lively Mexican Restaurant for B-day Dinner?

pielady Nov 17, 2008 09:46 PM

Have read through all the Mexican restaurant recs and now can't wait to try out a lot of them but wondered which you'd go to for a birthday dinner on the Saturday after T'giving for good food, lively atmosphere (and takes reservations)? Group of 5: 2 teens, 3 adults. Birthday boy likes his food way beyond spicy. Not so with the others. Boston/Cambridge/Somerville/Waltham environs would be easiest. Thanks!

    Hey, thanks. I had come to the conclusion that we should go to Ole and your replies support that. Love this board!

      Ole in Inman Square, Cambridge. Very lively, very youthful, very good food.

        Ole was also my first thought. Or maybe Sol Azteca on the Boston/Brookline line. Or a little more downscale at Forest Cafe on Mass Ave. by Porter Sq.

          I had my birthday at Ole this past year and it was fantastic I would definitely recommend it! They have great food- the atmosphere is fun and they also make guacamole at your table which I always feel adds lively/interactive points to the vibe

            Ole is good - however, have anyone in your group interested in spicy food let your server know when ordering.
