REPLIES (last updated ):
Pedro's on Bromfield Street in Boston. The carnenasada.
Purple Cactus in Jamaica Plain!
El Potro in Union Square is the only Mexican Restaurant in Boston.
Taco Loco In Somerville... best in Boston by far!!
This native Texan says Boca Grande in Cambridge. To be honest, haven't tried many others -- no need in my opinion!
Olecito. I have been to Anna's more than I like to admit and I am not sure why I settled for so long...Anna's was good before I had better.
I have to say El Pelon. Do not get the Anna's hype.
I'm from Oklahoma, and I am a huge fan of Cactus Grill in East Boston. I think Anna's is kind of bland.
I'd def go with Cafe Burrito in Belmont as they have amazing flavored meats & chickens not to mention crazy creative salsa's such as this months pinapple & bacon. A must try!
El Pelon - no question. 2nd is El Potro in Union Sq.
boca grande on mass ave in cambridge is the best!
Purple cactus in JP! Soooo good.
Bueno Y Sano - Amherst/Acton
La Siesta in Winthrop!

Anna's Anywhere In Boston ! They are all consistent! I am from Texas as well and yes while not everyone in Boston can make a good burrito ? Anna's can do right everyone I go into one !
Viva Burrito!! Anna's is overrated, I don't get it...
Boca Grande in Brighton or Brookline (Coolidge Corner).
Anna's is pretty much good at every location.
El Pelon's flavor profile is most reminiscent of food I ate in Mexico City.
Olecito is pretty good as well.
I have trouble thinking of Boloco as a "burrito" place (it's more of a "wrap").
Also - Burrito's are in no way "Mexican" food. Mexican inspired, yes - but hardly "authentico".
And finally Taco Loco rocks. Stopped there on a whim - but really if you're only looking for Burrito's you're short-changing yourself.
Blue Ribbon BBQ. Try the one with burnt ends.
Taqueria Carrizal, Brighton ave in Allston. Authentic and delicious.
Anna's is wonderful once you figure out how to get the most out of their ingredients. Yes, you can have grilled veggies AND chile verde.

El Triumfo on E. Berkeley. Looks like a hole in the wall and close by the Pine Street Inn, but it's got amazing burritos at a great price and it's open late.

El Pelon. All others are pretenders.
Bueno y sano by a mile...but haven't had all the others yet!!
El Pelon is good but overpriced for a true burrito.

The main stream taquerias are just fine, however if you truly want to taste a real Mexican taco or torta go to "La Victoria Taqueria" in Arlington Center, great home made fast Mexican food!
