Foursquare Tips

  • This is the kind of big, big-flavored, low-priced food that makes El Pelon a natural in this college neighborhood. Victory is theirs, and ours.
  • Stop in and say hi to el Guapo, then proceed to eat one of the tastiest burritos this side of Mexico.
  • Rajas con queso menos queso. Aww yeah.
  • I don't come to Boston without stopping at Pelon at least 3 times
  • Always add plantains in you burrito. Always.
  • Another place to try. I'm loving Foursquare
  • Go for the carnitas burrito with guacamole, hotsauce, black beans and rice. It's delicious.
  • The salsa brings their burritos from good to great. Pure authentic burritos. Mexican coke too!
  • Best hot sauce around and it's homemade! Double win.
  • If you frequent Pelon, you must get the punch card. One free burrito after twelve visits
  • The only burrito worth getting in Brighton. I got the El Guapo and was greatly surprised at how delicious it was.
  • Love the carnitas and el Guapo burritos! Also got to grab a Mexican Coca Cola.
  • Every Wednesday in April after 8pm Fiery 15 qualifying round for Chili Eating Champion 2012 -Eat 15 Habeneros in 15 minutes, win a special TShirt and a spot in the finals entry $15
  • The El Guapo is to die for! Don't miss it.

  • Definitely get the el guapo
  • Awesome fish tacos: cubes of cod are fried in a spiced cornmeal batter and lightly dressed with chile-scented mayo instead of salsa. El Peln nails the essential crisp, unoily fry job.
  • Plantains in burritos!
  • The closest this Texas girl could get to a real Tex-Mex enchilada and tamale in Boston.
