Where to get a good burrito?

A good burrito is an important part of my diet. Where to get the best one? Especially around Cambridge.

  1. If you search this board you will find many lengthly discussions comparing the virtues/pitfalls of the local burrito scene. Anna's in Porter Sq gets props, as do a few others.

    1. I won't miss this opportunity to plug my favorite, Taqueria la Mexicana in Union Sq Somerville. But yes, there are a number of good choices.

      1. If you're in Harvard Square head to Felipe's in the Garage. I especially like their carnitas and tinga pollo versions.

        1. I like Felipe's as noted above, but my favorite is the Colorado Chicken at Boca Grande in East Cambridge (not their other locations for some reason) - black beans, no cheese, no rice, and ask for the extra hot sauce (not more of the regular hot sauce, a different more spicy condiment).

            The beef biria burritos are really good too at Boca Grande. I've had it at the Mass Ave (Harvard/Porter) location and also the Brighton Village location, both very good.

          2. While we're calling out favorite dishes, I'll recommend both the chile verde burritos and the tacos al pastor at Anna's.
