El Sarape, Braintree= terrible!

Hi, I'm new to the board and found it when searching for restaurant reviews in the Boston area. I was searching because I had a truly awful experience tonight and wanted to warn others ;) Looking foward to some good recomendations!
My husband and I visited El Sarape in Braintree for what we thought would be an inexpensive, good mexican meal. To start from the beginning, as we were seated we were served tap water in glasses with food caked on them. We didn't mention it so as not to be rude but just hoped it would improve. Next we were served margaritas in glasses that were still hot from the dishwasher. Not really what you expect when you order a cold beverage but, hey, at least we knew they washed these ones!
And it only got worse when the food arrived.. I ordered the chicken enchiladas and they arrived lukewarm, full of dark meat, covered with the saltiest tomato sauce I have ever tasted.
My husband had the tacos which he said were edible but definitely not good.
To top it all off it was at least 80 degrees in the restaurant and we were seated so close to the next party that we had to be careful not to bump elbows!
All that to say, stay away!
