Foursquare Tips

  • Seriously the best. Better than Annas chipotle bolloco. This is real authentic owner operated family place. Trust me it's the best money spent. They're so nice! Foods amazing. Can't go wrong. TRY IT
  • try this restaurant!
  • Tacos! Flan! Everything! Just beware the red enchiladas are blazingly hot. Very delicious, but on fire!
  • Best Mexican in the area. Prices are very reasonable. Can't go wrong with pollo tacos especiales. Definitely get a horchata too. But be prepared to wait, the place is tiny and there's often a line
  • (Best of Boston 2013-HIDDEN GEM) Improper Bostonian says, "It's exterior is dubiously nondescript, and next door, the divey Hose Trough Tavern is like a guard dog warding off 'fraidy cats."
  • Great, family run restaurant. The food here is fantastic.
  • The $2 tacos are amazing.
  • Pastor tacos, just do it. Great place for take out if you don't want to risk not getting one of the 6 tables.
  • Bring cash! They don't take credit cards.
  • The best places are hidden in buildings like this. Probably would never had tried it if not for Yelp but so glad I did.
  • Best tacos ever. Get the tacos especiales with carnitas or al pastor.
  • love this place. authentic Jeff Onore
