good burritos around newton/needham??
My husband and I lived in Brookline and Cambridge for many years and loved Ana's Taqueria, and the other burritos places around there. We can't seem to find anything good in the 'burbs. :-( Can you recommend something around Newton/Needham? Thanks!
Waltham is not too far, and has one of my favorite authentic Mexican taquerias in Greater Boston: Tacqueria El Amigo on Willow Street, a little hole in the wall, cheap and amazing. I've only had their tacos, never burritos, which are more of a border-food thing, I guess. I know that Carl's on Prospect St in Waltham also does burritos, but I've only done their cheesesteak subs, which are excellent.
Here's a food blogger who covers the Newton area; I can't vouch for her stuff, but you might get some ideas there: http://tishsdish.blogspot.com/ She has good things to say about a place called Acapulco in Newton Highlands, but that's from December '05. I guess she went on hiatus at some point but is posting regularly again.

Carl's burritos really aren't burritos, they are cheesesteaks wrapped in a tortilla with salsa.
El Amigo makes an ok burrito I guess - but they are more of traditional meat/refried bean tex/mex type, not the rice, choice of bean, cheese, lettuce, guac, sour cream, salsa, etc. type you find at anna's. Their tacos are pretty good though.
Occassionaly I enjoy the bbq burritos at blue ribbon.
Acapulcos is horrid. Been there half a dozen times, each time worse than the next.
Someone needs to take the empty Zathmarys in needham and turn it into an Anna's! When we're craving mexican.... we make it ourselves (kind of sad..but no good options in Newton/Needham area. ) Sol Azeteca is ok for higher end...but if you just want a quick burrito....forget it.
