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 burrito under $10 in Boston, easily. Particularly their veggie option, which is usually treated as an afterthought by most, is incredibly tasty. Add in awesone house made chips, delicious plantains (a rarity in Boston), and an amazing fish taco...and El pelon only pulls further ahead of the competition. Oh, they are also active supporters of their community and customers, great owners! Count yourself lucky to live close enough to be a regular.

The service is quick! This place has been the best Mexican in Boston for as long as I've been in the city. Burritos are giant and extra tasty. And the fried plantains are great.

A delicious hidden gem on Peterborough street in Boston, MA. My only regret was not knowing about this place or even trying it out when I lived down the street back in college. Absolutely amazing! You will not be disappointed if you are looking for some good mexican eats.
