Haven’t been here in a while but meal was still very good. It’s always been one of my favorite spots but slight let down tonight. I’d go back without hesitation and see if just the freezing weather decreased the enthusiasm in the kitchen??? More

I've been hearing rave reviews of Masa since moving to Boston, so I was excited to try the famous $10 brunch. I had the plantain empanada and the breakfast tacos. The empanada + butter was amazing - I wish I'd ordered more of them! The tacos were so-so, but for $10 it was hard to expect anything more. More

American | South Boston, Boston

Came here with my girls' part of our girls' weekend. They have a 90s hip hop brunch every 1st Sunday of the month and found that to be a bit disappointing as it was just 90s tunes playing with no other themes adding to it (like hiphop themed drinks/food, outfits etc.). If they do ramp that up it would definitely be another star!. Other than that the service was great, albeit our food did take some time to come out, BUT when it did WOW WOW WOW so good! My Good Morning Pizza was so big that I had to take some with me even AFTER I shared with BOTH of my girls (they kindly provided a plastic bag for me to make a portable cooler- to keep it refrigerated until I got to a fridge- with the ice from the ice bucket that held our champagne for our mimosas, which were great too!) . The food I sampled off their plates, the S'mores French Toast and the Chicken and Waffle Sandwich were also heavenly! And the bill was not bad at all for ordering our food plus splitting a table mimosa (which came out to be about 2 mimosas per person for 3 people) - a little less than $30 per person. Overall if you could just be a little patient for the food , it's a great place to come and eat and drink while bopping to some 90s hiphop jams :) More
