"As if the margaritas weren't spicy (or strong!) enough, we decided to start with the Fried Pickled Jalpenos ($7.01). Served with a cook and creamy chipotle blue cheese dressing, these bread and butter jalapeno pickles were lightly fried and borderline addictive...especially when dipped in the accompanying dressing."
"I love the decor here, different artists have come in and painted murals on the walls in bright colors. Fajitas & 'Ritas has an outdoor, backyard, neighborhood-y, casual place to meet your fiends out kind of feel."
"Unabashedly fun, this ultra loose joint attracts a surprising number of button up types"
"If there is such a thing as comfort food, there is such a thing as a comfort restaurant. And for that alone, I'll always return to Fajitas & 'Ritas again and again."

"Boston has so many fantastic places restaurants and bars and I have been to my share of great places and not so great places. This one lands on my great places list."
"For my entree, I ordered the steak and shrimp fajitas....I loved it all. It was a large portion of vegetables with steak and 4 shrimp. The steak was lean, flavorful, and tender while the shrimp had a nice blackening to it from heat of the cooktop."
