    The steak tacos were good as well as the shrimp tacos but I've had better. The Dorado taco was probably the best thing we ordered.

    Beer battered fish and shrimp tacos and steak tacos were perhaps the illest. Good Mexican hot chocolate too! Also have a $1.99 fish taco special on Wednesdays after 3pm

    Fish tacos

    Ennis Glendon · August 12, 2014

    The fish is meaty and steak-like with lovely charred flavor, and it’s topped with cabbage, crema, and a dark green, tangy tomatillo-avocado salsa that makes the dish. Read more · August 4, 2014

    People don't recommend the quesadillasfor a reason. Everything else is awesome!

    Gotta try the cemitas

    Don't forget their hot sauce which is made out of ghost peppers. Spicy but good. 😱👌

    The Sat & Sun brunch is seriously underrated. Breakfast taco plate with a side of patatas bravas!

    Love the portabello mushroom tacos. Grilled fish tacos are better than the battered, imho. The hibiscus tea is fantastic in summer. If you're a Healthworks member, show your card for a 10% discount.

    Patas bravas are a delicious take on home fries but super spicy!

    Whenever I am craving fish tacos, Dorado is the only place I think of. You can't go wrong.

    Have a cemita, a Mexican sandwich. Hard to find those around. The guacamole is also top notch.

    Any cemita is great and I highly recommend the seasonal soups, esp the tortilla.

    Glen Schwartz · June 19, 2013

    Stick to cemitas or tacos, which are delicious (especially paired with a modeling negro), but the taco salad came with some frozen veggies. Yuck!

    Lindsay Krell · May 31, 2013

    This place could possibly have the best tacos in all of Boston. The sauce is unbelievable. It's like eating Mexican food in California. Go tacos or go home!

    Add the tomatillo-avocado salsa to whatever you get.

    Place is rock solid. The chorizo is bomb. I eat a lot of food here.

    This place is incredible. Get the chicken quesadilla with the avocado and tomatillo salsa, you will not be disappointed. Chicken caesar salad is great too.

    Some favorites from our review: The grilled marinated sirloin steak cemita, served on a toasted sesame seed egg roll. Also try the fish tacos. To wash it all down, try the hibiscus tea. Read more

    12 oz Mexican Coca Cola for $2.50 each... don't believe the sign that says $2.25... it rings up at $2.50.
