Service
 
The Mexican street eats include “outstanding” burritos at these taquerias that “simply cannot be beat” for fans who contend the ingredients are “better quality and fresher” than the “typical” ; expect “Day of the Dead” –inspired interiors in both Brighton and Fenway (which is mostly takeout with some patio seating), along with “quick" service.

Quality of food excellent. But would prefer to build my own taco. The menu only allows you to select from menu. To add hot sauce and try from the two they had cost me .25 each. I simply wanted to try the hottest and have it be part of the meal.

Pretty good but check your order before leaving because they regularly forget sides and chips

The fish tacos and the horchata here are amazing! the tamales were ok and felt like they were basically steamed masa with string cheese inside which is not what it is at all. i tried all the tacos and they were not bad but they were not exceptional either... Car parking can be a little tight but the T drops you off right outside. leave your car at home.. The crowd is mostly from BU and takeout is a popular option given the size of the restarurant.
