    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.

    Dorado specializes in Baja California-style fish tacos & cemitas - street-style sandwiches loaded with black beans, chipotles en adobo, avocado, Oaxaca cheese, cilantro & choice of meat. Drooling yet? Read more

    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

    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

    I don't usually do tacos, but when I do, I Do-rado. Okay, bad pun aside, this place has the best shrimp tacos! Coming from someone who's lived in San Diego for 3 years - THIS IS FORREAL, guys.

    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

    This place is amazing. Everything is incredible. Skip Anna's and Boca and come straight here. Cemitas are incredible. Their White Corn Chips are amazing. Salsa & Guac are the best i've had.

    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!

    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.
  • Nicholas H.
    The fish tacos here are especially good and I like the chicken as well. Rice and beans aren't the best.

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

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

    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.
