Fresh, Authentic Mexican.

All day.  Every day.

El Pelón Taqueria offers authentic Mexican food in Boston for every appetite.  Our menu features Mexican favorites from light tostadas to beefy burritos big enough to satisfy any appetite. From the day we opened fifteen years ago, our food has always been prepared with care daily with fresh meats and produce. Customer favorites include our fish tacos (prepared with locally made corn tortillas, lightly breaded Atlantic cod, limed onions, house made spicy mayo, pickled cabbage and fresh cucumbers) and the El Guapo burrito (prepared with carne asada, Mexican rice, black beans, jack cheese, fried plantains, lettuce, and our home made crema and smoky fire roasted salsa). Best Mexican Food in Boston All of our salsas, guacamole, hot sauces and crema are made in house from our own time-tested recipes, and it’s obvious at the first bite. We have no problem accommodating dietary or personal preferences when preparing your food. Our fresh, made to order menu makes it easy for us to adjust a meal for your needs. El Pelon also offers a catering menu perfect for entertaining crowds of any size. This menu includes gluten-free and dairy-free options as well, and is the perfect way to enhance your next event with great food. We can even deliver your catering order right to your door if given 48 hours notice. Whether it’s a single taco or lunch for 200, we put the same about of love, care and attention to detail in to everything we make.

The next time you are craving Mexican food in Boston, we hope to see you soon at either our Brighton or Fenway location!
