“Better than Anna's”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Better than Anna's. This place is cheap, tucked away behind Fenway Park so it's great to go before a ball game. The food is better than Anna's---Less Greasy! The plates, rice and beans, have tremendous flavor. Anna's plates are rather bland. If you're in Fenway, hit it up, you won't be disappointed.

“Yummm”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

El Pelon is probably one of the best Mexican restaurant in Boston. Although it is not really a restaurant,(self-service, small seating area..) the food is inexpensive, authentic and very delicious! Grilled steak and fish burritos are my two favorites. Definitely stop by when you're in Boston!

“Simple, cheap, good”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

Great place for a quick meal. We usually go there for lunch. Don't expect to find a seat at 12:30 though. It's one of the few places that serve plantains.

“The best in town”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

El pelon is truly the best in town, in my and my friends' opinion! Their offerings are affordable, well portioned, and most importantly, delicious and authentic. Every ingredient is cooked to full flavor, and their combination balanced and heavenly. I love their tortas, quesadillas, burritos... You name it!
