Hostess very nice. Speaks moderate English. Unable to understand if you order fast. Willing to help. Food taste average Mexican. Chips without salt so good. No salsa, hot sauce instead. Vegetarian options very few. Fajitas delicious. Each item approx. 15-20$.

My daughter recently moved to this neighborhood and wanted to try this restaurant after hearing rave reviews. Angela's did not disappoint. It is a really small restaurant and reservations (for a Friday night) were required. The first thing I noticed was the drink menu - they make Michelada - beer (your choice) with tomato juice, spices and a salted rim.... More

This place is located in a horrible part of Boston. It is quite small - only 7-8 tables. Beyond that, the food was not worthy of a return. The food was mediocre at best. Very, very, disappointing given the other more positive reviews.

Our family lived in the Hilton close by this restaurant. Hilton breakfast buffer was too big for most of my party so we decided to look for a neighborhood restaurant. This cafe is across the street from the Orient Heights T-stop so it is really convenient for our breakfast stop before sightseeing. Their service was very attentive and our coffee... More

Excellent guacamole and the best Mole sauce. The rest of the meal was not good. The portions are small so we had appetizers and dessert. The Margaritas were small and mostly ice for $10 I could not believe the bill was $107 less tip? The atmosphere is not that great and the floor had food and chips from the night... More

My boyfriend and i love to go to Angela's on a week day. Super quite spot with AMAZING food. My favorite dish (which i like to have as a dessert) is the dulce de leche pancakes. They serve breakfast until 3 PM!

Unbelievable food with fantastic flavor. Tucked away in East Boston, but totally worth the trip for anyone living or traveling in the Boston Area. Try the chilaquiles!! 😁

Hands down, best guacamole I've ever had! The house margarita is delicious - make sure you get a salted rim (it includes habenero pepper that adds an incredible, spicy kick to a sweet, refreshing cocktail). The fish tacos are light and tasty -- FYI they're listed as an app, but you can order as an entree. And the homemade mole... More

Angela's is a little too snug for us to eat there and no bar so we do take out and the food is exceptional.
