  • DigBostonSlinging the most seriously delicious, fresh, and outrageously filling burritos this side of Guadalajara, El Pelon is deservedly this year's #DigThis13 winner in the BURRITO category!

  • Caitlin C.Everything tastes good and fresh here. My new favorite is the chicken tostada, adding guacamole and the lime-pickled cabbage for extra flavor and texture.

    55555 by Al S.
