Best of Boston

2006 Best Burrito

Cantina La Mexicana

Bostonians who bemoan the city’s dearth of real burritos have obviously never been to this Union Square standout. You won’t find assembly line stations here, just hardworking cooks who steam flour tortillas then load them with rice, beans, cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole (ask for extra), grilled veggies, and your choice of meat. Trust us, this burrito will change the mind of even a stubborn aficionado.
