El Pelón Taqueria offers authentic Mexican food in Boston for everyone in the family. Our menu features Mexican favorites from light tostadas to burritos big enough to satisfy any appetite. From the day we opened sixteen years ago, our food has always been prepared with care daily with fresh meats and produce. Customer favorites include our famous fish tacos (prepared with locally made corn tortillas, lightly breaded Atlantic cod, limed onions, house-made spicy mayo, pickled cabbage, and fresh cucumbers) and the award winning, a recently featured by Taco Trip with Aaron Sanchez, the El Guapo burrito (prepared with carne asada, Mexican rice, black beans, jack cheese, fried plantains, lettuce, and our homemade crema and smoky fire roasted salsa). We have no problem accommodating dietary or personal preferences when preparing your food. Our fresh, made to order menu makes it easy for us to adjust a meal for your needs. El Pelon Taqueria also offers a catering menu perfect for entertaining crowds of any size, and perfect for office parties too. Our Mexican menu includes gluten-free and dairy-free options as well and is the perfect way to enhance your next event with great food. We can even deliver your catering order right to your door if given 48 hours notice. Both locations are open 11am-11pm seven days a week. For take-out orders call 617-262-9090 and we will have your order ready when you arrive. We also offer online ordering where you can order and skip the line, just come to the counter and pick up your order, great for the lunch time rush. Download our app for delivery options too!
