There aren't that many Mexican restaurants in Boston compared to LA, but Anna's Taqueria has been going strong for 20 years. In fact, they celebrated their 20th anniversary yesterday! Anna's has 6 locations around Boston now including one at the MIT Student Center, right across the street from my office. As you can imagine it gets quite crowded during lunch hours, but the line moves fast.
I tried a burrito with everything and carne asada in it. Rice, beans, salsa, and cheese. They actually put cheese on the tortillas before heating it up. Anna's burrito is a San Francisco Mission-style burrito and it's a great lunch option for everyone. Cheap (the burritos are $6-7 depending on size) and satisfying. It's not huge like Chipotle's burrito but it's still plenty big. It's actually way easier to eat and less messy.
You can get a side of chips and guacamole to share.
They also serve jamaica, agua fresca, and horchata.
As I post about Anna's on social media, I keep getting comments from people about how it brings back college memories. After all, Anna's has been around for 20 years! You can imagine how many college students have survived on Anna's cheap and filling burritos over two decades.
