Another East Boston staple, Taqueria Jalisco is serving up dank burritos with a SoCal vibe. Enjoy their house-made chips and salsas as you wait for your burrito to be crafted. The star of the show is the burrito mojado, which is larger than a small child, and covered in a delicious red sauce. Just make sure to bring your appetite because the servings are large, and the food is as authentic as it comes.
Yes, this spot is technically outside of city limits, and yes, the tacos are king here rather than the burritos. However, we think this place is worth a spot on this list nonetheless.
Just outside the city is La Victoria, which is cranking out world-class tortas on a daily basis. These Mexican sandwiches pack savory, cheesy goodness in every bite. The highlight is the choriqueso torta, complete with house-made sausage and melty cheese. This is a heart attack in a sandwich, but well worth the trip to the ER.
There isn’t a bad item on the menu. From the burritos to the tacos, everything is authentic and always made in-house.
This Cambridge taco shop is taking traditional Mexican cuisine and putting a unique twist on things. Menu items include: pig’s head tortas, duck confit tacos, and wagyu beef tortas, just to name a few. This culinary bravery pays off– because although we could eat an al pastor burrito everyday, these twists add a refreshing new take on all the classics we know and love.
Conveniently located across from A4cade, Naco Taco is a great stop before or after a night out.
