Villa Mexico Cafe
Beacon Hill. Mexican Food. From a gas station. What? Yes. It's places like Villa Mexico Cafe that separates the real foodies from the poseurs. If you can get over yourself and order up a burrito in the tiny, cramped Grampy's Gas Station, then you will be rewarded with the best burrito in Boston. It's actually a little bit pricier than the ubiquitous Anna's Taqueria, but it's ten times better, more consistently good, and less likely to beat the hell out of your insides. Villa Mexico is run entirely by a very sweet, talented Mexican woman and, I think, her daughter. And Mister Todd English himself has sung the praises of Villa Mexico, so even the snobbiest of snobs (if Mexican food snobs even exist) can make no excuses. Whatever you order off the menu, get it in spicy form and indulge in the smoky heat of the best Mexican street food this side of the border.
