    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!

    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
