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.

Best burritos in the area. Fast prep & good ingredients. I recommend "extra meat" in a burrito. (The frequent-burrito card is a buy-10-get-1.)

Best burrito ever !! DONT BUY THEIR CHIPS ! I saw them stack up boxes upon boxes of open lid containers near their toilets YES TOILETS !! All the while folks walk in and out of toilets releasing who knows what upon exposed food !
