Boston's Best Burritos

A favorite grab-and-go meal for Bostonians, burritos offer a balanced meal all wrapped up in one. Stick with chicken, veggies and beans for a healthier treat, or splurge with steak, sour cream and guacamole. I dare you to find a Boston neighborhood without a favorite burrito spot.

Taco Loco

44 Broadway
Somerville, MA 02145

Taco Loco isn't fancy, but their food gets rave reviews. Customers call the food fresh and flavorful and the portions are large. Enormous, some say. And a burrito with "everything" means just that, for no extra charge.

The first Tapatio was destroyed in a fire in November 2006, but reopened in early 2009. Before the fire, it was a popular place, and since reopening it seems to be on the right track. No extra charge for guacamole is one perk that keeps regulars coming back.

Villa Mexico

296 Cambridge st

Yes, that's right; this Mexican restaurant is in a gas station. And it's getting lots of attention. "Best burrito in the world." "One of the best burritos I've ever had." "Go here, it's pretty awesome." That's what folks are saying about Villa Mexico in online reviews. It is cash only and because it's so popular, expect to wait at lunch time.



Several Boston locations

Anna's calls itself "Boston's most beloved taqueria since 1995," and plenty of Bostonians would agree. It's Mexican fast food that you order at a counter, but regulars are big fans of the taste, price and promptness.
