The Mexican torta (almost like a burger) was thoroughly enjoyed by other members in my group. Great tacos. The flavor and... seasoning was spot on. Read more

I happened to be in Boston. Wanted tacos for lunch. This place had really good reviews. I got three different tacos. All... were incredible. Wish I were close to that location. Read more

Food is usually quite good, but sometimes it's quite awful. I've found that at a lot of Mexican places; you get the same dish... each time, and 1 out of every 10 times it's really bad. The main reason for the 2 star review is the way they treat call inorders. If you call them, you're not even a 2nd class citizen, you're a nobody. They let the phone ring for minutes at a timeand sometimes never pick up. When they do pick up, they put you on hold and then forget about you, literally. That is not anexaggeration. Whenever I call, I'm put on hold and forgotten about. Usually I can last about 5 minutes before giving up. Onetime I tested to see how long it would last. I was on hold for 8 minutes before the line went dead. I called back, and asked ifthey forgot someone was on the line. They admitted they did. This would of course be excusable if it didn't happen every time.It would also be excusable if there were a long line of customers in store waiting to be served, but that's not the case: theynever put you on mute so you know whether they're helping people or not. The time I was on hold for 8 minutes, after the onecustomer that I was put on hold for, there were no other customers the entire hold time. This has been the case most other timesas well. So, managers: get your staff together and train employees how to handle the phone line. I worked in food service forover a decade, so it's not like I don't have empathy, but if you want business then you need to take orders. And you can't takemy order, or anyone other callers' because the phone line is hung, when you leave me on hold and forget about me. Read more

They had lots of options, quick service, online ordering available through one of those 3rd party sites, inside seating, it... seemed that take out was the default for most people but there is seating for maybe 15 people inside. I had a torta w carneasada and holy HECK so good. I also got elote because I HECKIN love elote and I get it everywhere I go and it was so delicious Imight literally come back just for that. They also had horchata and agua fresca which is also like the best when that's offered.I paid around $26 for all that so it's classic Boston type pricing but it was def worth it. Read more

My burrito was delicious, well rolled, well made. Deserves a 5 star rating despite a few setbacks. $17 is pretty pricey for a... burrito with no sides, and the sauce comes in a tiny thimble. The flavor of the sauce, the skill of the burrito, and theperfectly cooked carnitas make up for its faults. If you're in the area and looking for something to grab and go, Chilacates isworth it if you have a little extra money in your pocket. Read more
