    Great, great food! Highly recommend
  • Chris P.
    Tacos are bigger than you think. I got 3 but 2 probably enough. Carnitas were great. Carne Asada was tough, chewy & bland. Also, if you get chips & salsa, the salsa is thimble of pico, not salsa.

    kind of expensive at $4 a taco, but bearable if you get the house specials. try the beef or fish, but avoid the chicken. horchata was extremely diluted.

    Try El Guapo!! They have a veggie option for it! You won't be disappointed... and don't forget to ask for their hot sauce!

    The food is delicious but if you order take away, always check your order before you leave. They frequently forget items.

    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.

    Best Burrito I've tried in Boston so far. Wouldn't say plantains are a burrito stAple but they taste great in El Guapo. the salsa has that uniquely fresh taste and service is great too

    Ask for the habanero hot sauce, then add it sparingly to the salsa, your tacos and anything else you want to burn your taste buds. So hot, so delicious.
