I don't know why this is not on offer in more places - El Pelon is one of the few I've found that does it. The El Guapo is dope! Seriously one of the best burritos I've had ever :)

This place is what's right in world. Tucked behind the main thoroughfare on Peterborough street, this place is my go to takeout place on Fenway.

Extensive menu: much more than just tacos and burritos. Vegetarian selections are well marked. Limited indoor seating with more seating outdoors. Our food order was ready very soon even though it was a busy lunch time. Hot, fresh (and freshly prepared), and thoroughly enjoyable. Well...More

On a visit from the UK... Great to go to an authentic neighbourhood Mexican for lunch. Enjoyed tasty food at the outside tables. They had a few gluten free options which was great too.

Tacos were excellent, especially the steak tacos. The taquitos were delicious. The breakfast meal was perfectly cooked and a bargain for $4. I will definitely go again. 4 stars because the chips were hard and under-salted and the chicken in the quesadillas was overcooked. Small...More

loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
