    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.

    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.

    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.
