    Split the carnitas and grilled corn with a friend for the perfect $10 midnight snack. You won't find anything better.

    After a Sox game (4 PM start) I never expected a seat but they were able to accommodate our party of 4. The food was prepared quickly and was tasty. The 4 soft taco meal was great.

    Since moving to Boston from southern California, I've yet to find a more satisfying fish taco in New England. Sit on the taqueria side. They taste better that way, promise.

    The burritos are only good here on week days, not week nights and not weekends, the only guy that can make them right works on week days.

    The carnitas tacos are delicious, but heavy on the cilantro. If you like cilantro, order these. If you don't, be sure to ask for them with very light cilantro.

    Get the Salsa Mexicana. It's pricey at $5, especially since some joints give you free chips and salsa. But you get three types of salsa, and the verde is to die for. Yes.
