I ordered a quesadilla and it was made almost exactly like a burrito - not sure why, but it was excellent. The quesadilla and burritos were quite a meal. The tacos were a bit smaller and when we were there there was not a hard shell option. Very dining tables available. Water dispenser available to diners. This is a place... More

Great burritos and chips, inexpensive and down stairs chilled eating area, more fast food style eg KFC, BK than restaurant but worth a visit for cheap or fast eats

I'd love to take Anna's Taqueria back to the UK with me. Really cheap, incredibly tasty. I had a quesadilla with all the extras and it was a meal in itself. Excellent.

Although I was skeptical about spending one of my few meals here in Boston on a restaurant chain, a time-crunch landed me at Anna's Taqueria. I was pleasantly surprised, as the food was cheap, filling, and fresh.

Ridiculously good. We had the tacos and burritos, and freshly juiced watermelon juice. Portions are generous. When you get close, the kitchen is an open one so you can see them prepare the food.. And see all the fresh veggies they use!!

Very good food. Practically no wait. I felt you got a good bit of food for the money. A little confusing trying to figure out the options to add in to your food but once you get to the front it's easy to see what they have to offer.

Great food that has a lot of regulars-- make sure you know what you want by the time you get to the counter to eat. The downstairs eating area is tacky...

I went to Anna's Taqueria expecting good food and I was not disappointed. I had three tacos as well as my wife. She had one of her tacos as chile verde and was warned it was hot - it was! Habanero all the way! The tacos come with two small tortillas with melted cheese and a very generous helping of... More

Not great for vegans, their pinto beans and guacamole aren't vegan. (Why!?). Small servings, even the super size is smaller than a chipotle burrito. A little plain tasting.

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
