    Don't skip the el guapo burrito: whoever thought to put fried plantains in a burrito is my hero. It's as amazing as it sounds.

    A small neighbourhood joint that offers delicious Mexican fast food. Very popular but with efficient service, lines move fast. Try the pescados! I enjoyed the carnitas torta too.

    Horrible! These are not real tacos. Tortas also were disappointing. I guess this a place for burritos only.

    The plantains were great.. but everything else was nothing to write home about.. pescado tacos and the veggie burrito were okay, at best..

    Next time you're at Fenway, stop by El Pelon to try the Northeast's best burrito. The popular El Guapo Burrito features fried sweet plantains that mix well with the savory grilled steak. Yum!

    The El Guapo burrito with fried plantains is the way to go if you appreciate authentic Mexican flavors. The sweetness of the plantains is a great new dimension.

    Amazing food with really good prices. A great small Mexican place. Prefer it over chipotle to be honest

  • Jeremy K.

    Get the El Guapo burrito here. If you don't, get lost! It's the only way to go.

  • Jeanie N.

    Can't go wrong with burritos the size of your forearm. El guapo burrito is really good, would definitely get it again but if you're expecting the plantains to be super sweet, don't.

    Brian Kinsley · August 21, 2014

    The "El Guapo" burrito place is a strong choice. Is the first time I've seen fried plantains in a burrito and it's a game-changer.

    burritos are awesome. they'll also make them into burrito bowls for when you want to feel more virtuous.
