Best of Boston

1997 Best Band, Mariachi

Tacos El Charro

There is a little bit of Mexico at this pinata-filled spot near Jackson Square. Despite the bright lights and the warm sangria, Tacos El Charro is worth it for the flavorful Mexican food and the hip, campy mariachi band. As the band kicks into high gear, dig into a dense bean-and-meat-filled flour tortilla and smile.
