I definitely recommend The Purple Cactus! It's the place to go if you're in the JP area! I love their regular burritos but have become a fan of their steak burrito bowl. It kicks both Bolocco and Chipotle's hinny!!! Go and check them out! The...More

Purple Cactus has been in Jamaica Plain for decades (in three different locations). The food is absolutely reliable. The burrito you get today is the same one you will get next week. They are very busy at peak times but also very fast. Suggestions for...More

The good food is fresh and cheap and always always delicious. I always get a large Santa Fe sling it's the best drink. The nachos are perfect size and the Santa Fe salad is a safe choice for ANYONE. This is a local charm

I've stopped in here two or so times for lunch while in JP - they have massive salads that are okay for taste, but somewhat bland burritos. Not bad for a quick lunch when in need.

Somewhat disappointing. Had the chicken burrito but was unimpressed with the contents. Mostly rice, scant beans and little else. I have had better at many other burrito places, even at Whole Foods.

Felt a strange compunction to get a pork burrito, which is usually a disappointment at most places. Was delighted to find it moist, tender, well flavoured and generous. Definitely would recommend, and also cheap!

This is one of our favorite places to get take out when we visit my daughter. We call and order our food and it is ready by the time we get there. The prices are good and the menu is great.

Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
