I love this place on Cambridge Street, Boston opposite MGH. The rice is cooked in a broth which really imparts an amazing flavour. The breakfast bowl with chorizo is fab. So it the pork. I had multiple meals at this place - breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's beats Chipotle hands down.

The best thing: beef tongue (lengua) available on all dishes. It's difficult to fund beef tongue in any restaurant, and this is a real treat for me. Went with my husband, niece and her boyfriend. Both tried a little chunk of my "lengua quesadilla" and found it tasty. The men of our group got burritos, which were huge. Women got... More

When we walked in we wanted to turn around because the smell of mildewy mop was almost overwhelming, but not many places were open around there at 11pm after a Celtics game. The restaurant is very similar to Chipotle in its service- you order the type of dish then they push it down to the next person for meat, then... More

Great value for money and very tasty food! It's a fast food restaurant but food is made in front of you and you can be quite flexible with the fillings!

Very simple mexican fast food, but absolutely amazing. Very well made, good quality. We both enjoyed our meal a lot. This place was recommended to us, we travelled specifically there, and will pass the recommendation on.

Anna's was a great find in Boston. All of the food is made right in front of you so you get exactly what you want. Our only problem was it was a bit noisy and we couldn't hear our choices very well. That being said, what we did get was very good food and a lot of it!

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

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood 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.
