Lone Star. Come for the tacos, stay for the insane Mexican street corn and vast drink selection. Choosing which tacos to get is the ultimate Sophie’s choice, because they are all top-notch in their own right. One easy choice is the Mexican street corn. Grilled corn smothered in a flavor-packed garlic lime aioli… Do we need to say more?
Lone Star also boasts a great drink selection, containing freshly-squeezed citruses which we include on our “Best Margaritas in Boston” list. You can never go wrong with a Lone Star Happy Meal to start the night: A shot of blanco tequila, a side of sangrita, and pint of Modelo for $10. That’s what we call a screaming deal.
Nothing gets the taste buds watering more than watching a grown man slice up a pile of carnitas. Felipe’s is like Ford in the 1900’s, they have burrito-making down to a science. Creating a fast and efficient assembly line of flavor, they are serving up fresh burritos in just seconds. The magic starts with the steaming of the tortilla, and continues down the line until it reaches your mouth. In the summer months, people can be found enjoying the sun (And the margaritas) on their rooftop deck (Don’t forget our guide to the best margaritas in Boston).
Many Bostonians will only ever venture to East Boston to go to Logan, but we think that those people are missing out dearly. Angela’s is serving up juicy, tender al pastor in a vibrant setting that is perfect for a date. Whether it be a boozy brunch or margs and burritos before your night out, Angela’s has you covered. On the weekends you can expect a wait for breakfast but fortunately they have two locations in Eastie so if one is filled you can try your luck at the other.
