El Pelón: Authentic Mexican Food in BU's Backyard


El Pelón: Authentic Mexican Food in BU's Backyard

Do you want to eat authentic Mexican food but don’t know where to go? Whether you want to eat in or eat out, El Pelón Taquería is the perfect place! The nearest restaurant to campus is in Fenway, but it also delivers through Grubhub, Doordash, and Caviar. If you do not want to to wait in line, you can order online! Along with these convenient services, the food is exceptional.

El Pelón provides food for all types of eaters. Being a vegetarian, I ordered the veggie burrito and the black bean and cheese quesadilla. I was able to taste each specific ingredient in the burrito because it had just the right amount. The black bean and cheese quesadilla is for all the black bean lovers out there. The combination is a perfect vegetarian spin on a classic Mexican dish.


What is so great about El Pelón is that it offers all the classic Mexican dishes, but you can customize them according to your taste and preferences. If you want to try a little of everything, they offer different platos, or platters. The restaurant’s specials are the chicken chimichangas, tamales, and vegan tamales for those who want to try something different.

El Pelón Taquería is a great place for everyone to experience the authentic flavors of Mexican food!
