“great salsa bar, friendly vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Felipe's is reliably tasty and the prices are low compared to other burrito joints in Cambridge. Lots of seating, central location in Harvard Square and excellent salsa bar, which no other similar place has. I just ate there today and noticed at least 8-10 spanish speakers eating there - always a good sign. Highly recommended!

“Nice Salsa Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012 via mobile

The tacos, burritos and tostadas are very good and the self-serve salsa bar allows you to spice up your food to your own tastes ( something you can't do at Anna's Taqueria). The lemonade tasted freshly squeezed. This is where I go for a quick bite in Harvard Square.

“Affordable and Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

We ended up here on a whim after another place we wanted to go was closed. So glad we did! Almost all the burritos were under $5 (with chips or soda an extra $1 or so), so our total bill was only $12 compared to usually $20 whenever we go to Moe's or Chipotle and we ordered the same things! The burritos themselves were fantastic. I had the spicy chicken burrito - which was just a little tangy, but not overwhelming - probably the best burrito in Boston I've ever had. The service was fast and one of the workers even let me taste test the chicken first to make sure it wasn't TOO spicy, haha! The only downside is it's a little cramped. You can sit down to eat after you get your food, but you might have to wait for a table and sit right next to other people (not exactly a quiet romantic spot). However, the food was so good, the atmosphere isn't an issue. Highly recommended and we will definitely go there again!

“Great quesadillas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2010

Food is delicious and gets served quickly. Fine to eat there, but I usually take it away. Not sure if they serve beer or not. It's open quite late, at least compared to other places. Popular with college students.

“Great Burritos Found Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

I like the quality of the beans, and the salty intense flavor the meats all have. My only complaint about the food is that I've become accustomed to monster size burritos like at Chipotle. These are much, much smaller - but definitely quite good. If you're in Harvard square and want a quick burrito, this is the place.
