Due to the increase in COVID-19 restrictions, Casa Romero will be temporarily closed January/4/2021 thru February/9/2021. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. Thank you very much for your support during this difficult time.

After 40 years, my customers still tell me what a delightful discovery it is to step out of a Boston alley and into the heart of Mexico. That is exactly what I had envisioned when I decorated the coffered door and walls of my restaurant with the bright Talavera tiles from Puebla, Mexico. Casa Romero is located in the midst of glamorous Back Bay at 30 Gloucester and offers the best traditional Mexican food in Boston.

    I have spent a lot of time in Mexico and really appreciate the food. The chiles rellenos were outstanding, the other dishes we tried were very good. The space is nicely decorated, too. We will definitely go back.

    We are from Chicago and have dined in many Mexican restaurants with great food. Based on a personal recommendation, we found this lovely gem - Casa Romero. Our dinner here rivaled some of the best Mexican cuisines we've ever had. The cocktails were excellent and the Chile Relleno was truly outstanding! The Cochinita Pibil - pulled pork marinated in an achiote and orange chili sauce - was phenomenal. We dined in the cozy outdoor courtyard and would happily dine here again!

    Margarita was excellent, but expensive @ $15. Chips and salsa were extra, could have been included with drink. Both chicken and shrimp fajitas were excellent.

    Overall great experience. Food was awesome. Only downfall was the noise level but with margaritas as good as they were that’s expected. Service was a tad slow but on point, it was slammed in there. Overall highly recommend.

    Food was excellent, especially the Al Pastor tacos and ceviche. I loved the more traditional Mexican vibe on the menu (as opposed to tex-mex). Only downside: it was quite loud inside with the tiled surfaces and music.

    Fantastic food- authentic and not overly heavy, friendly and attentive service. Small courtyard in back has some noise from urban streets- what place in a city does not- but charming and perfect. Walked to Fenway for a game after.

    They tried to seat us at the bar even though the restaurant was almost empty and we had reserved a regular table. When we sat, no one came to our table, even though other people who came later were served. After 15 minutes we gave up and left.

    My daughter and her friends went and felt they got tricked into ordering two orders of guacamole at $14 a pop. They felt the server treated them pretty poorly. Maybe because it was a Saturday night and they were teens who clearly couldn’t drink - I don’t know. But they felt irritated with this rude treatment from their server the whole time.

    I love this place. I have been coming here for years and will continue to do so. The food is always great (I highly recommend the tuna tacos or the chicken mole) and it’s reasonably priced for Boston (please keep it this way). It’s a bit off the beaten path (you walk down an alleyway to enter), and is definitely a hidden gem. They have a really cute outdoor patio as well.
