Description: We offer authentic Mexican food prepared in our kitchen daily using only the freshest ingredients, the same way we've been doing for over 12 yrs. Our taqueria offers more than just the ordinary tacos & burritos. Make sure not to miss the ever-popular "El Guapo" burrito made with grilled steak, rice, black beans, fried plantains, jack cheese and our in house made fire roasted salsa.

Better than Anna's. This place is cheap, tucked away behind Fenway Park so it's great to go before a ball game. The food is better than Anna's---Less Greasy! The plates, rice and beans, have tremendous flavor. Anna's plates are rather bland. If you're in Fenway, hit it up, you won't be disappointed.

El Pelon is probably one of the best Mexican restaurant in Boston. Although it is not really a restaurant,(self-service, small seating area..) the food is inexpensive, authentic and very delicious! Grilled steak and fish burritos are my two favorites. Definitely stop by when you're in Boston!

Great place for a quick meal. We usually go there for lunch. Don't expect to find a seat at 12:30 though. It's one of the few places that serve plantains.

El pelon is truly the best in town, in my and my friends' opinion! Their offerings are affordable, well portioned, and most importantly, delicious and authentic. Every ingredient is cooked to full flavor, and their combination balanced and heavenly. I love their tortas, quesadillas, burritos... You name it!
