  1. man,hargau, you is some kinda wicked good hound.

    marlborough is def not close to us but i can see an urgent road trip in my tea leaves.

    p.s. these Sat/Sun specials (Menudo! Menudo!) are enough to draw some dedicated Boston offal hounds to a Zip car:

    Mexican BBQ beef stew served with Mexican style rice, refried beans and corn tortillas$14.00

    Soup made with pozole (hominy), pork and other seasonings. Served with tostados$14.00

    MENUDO Soups made with tripe, beef feet, red salsa and served with corn tortillas $14.

    1. Yes, it is pretty good. It is on a street that runs parallel to main street through Marlboro. Very homey, mom and pop feel from the minute you walk in. The food is good and decently priced. There was a thread on here about two years ago that discussed it. It may have been deep in the "Why are there no good restaurants in Acton" thread, but I think it was another one about the Hudson/Marlboro area.

        years ago i used to go to a taqueria place on main street, i think its long gone though.

          Yes, I remember that place. We used to go there too. It closed about 8 or 9 years ago, unfortunately. It was a good place to go for a casual, affordable but tasty meal.

      2. This is my metro west go-to for tacos and other small bites. Have not tried the guadalajaran specialties but have been meaning to make it there on a weekend.
