This is a place where you order at the register and wait for your name to be called to get your food. The chips and guacamole are really good. I’ve also enjoyed their quesadillas. My favorite was the “el guapo” burrito. It contains the basic burrito elements plus plantains! So good!

The cashier recommended the fish so I tried the fish burrito and daughter tried the fish tacos. Both were flavorful and good sized portions. My friend order chips and salsa. It was a huge portion! I also tried the fried plantains which were good, but it was too much food.

Don't expect atmosphere, sophistication, or whatever. It's a taco joint -- Boston's best. The fish and the carnitas are the best, but everything is good.

It's cheap. Face it, it's kind of a dive. So what? It's terrific.

Compared to places like Chipotle this place is definitely a step up. Pork carnitas are delicious. Can get very busy on Friday nights as expected.
