I used to love their burritos here, but the last few times I went, I was disappointed with the way the meat was prepared. The steak felt dry both times. The tortilla is good though, and to me taht's what makes or breaks burritos.

Highly recommend their tofu adobo burrito. It's delicious and very filling. I'm not a vegetarian, I just like this burrito so much that I choose it over their other options!

Pineapple chicken quesadilla was sloppy, soggy, and generally sad. I was not impressed with the food. Let's face it: if a quesadilla isn't crispy, it isn't worth the calories. The menu seemed to have extensive offerings at a price point just below Chipotle, which is...More

I am a huge Mexican food lover, and I will tell you that these burritos are outstanding. The experience of going there reminds me very much of the "soup nazi" episode on Seinfeld. This is no frills dining - you have to make your selections,...More

Worth crossing the river - no burrito I have had in Boston matches the Colorado Chicken with black beans and no rice from Boca Grande - and they always assemble it properly so you can eat it on the go without it bursting, leaking or...More

I just got off a 8 hour flight and I wanted real food, nothing from a chain or where a hostess has to look for a table in an empty restaurant. This place was simple and folksy with no bells and whistles other than a...More

This is my go to food spot. I live down the street, and it is so nice to be able to get a whole meal in about 45 seconds for $5-6. The pineapple burrito is my recommendation, but it is hard to go wrong with...More

I like this place and I think they offer a good value for the food. Usually the portions are large and you can choose what you want to add while you're in line (a bit like Chipotles) since it's also an open kitchen. The menu...More
