Great tex-mex place close to MIT. My go-to is the chimichanga, because why eat a regular burrito when you could deep fry it. Super delicious, really large portion, and the fried part is always nice and crispy.

The only minor annoyance is that it gets really crowded during peak meal hours and there isn't much space inside to start with.

My family and I were looking for a bite to eat after visiting the MIT Museum. We found this place through Trip Advisor and fell in love! My husband got the chimichanga and I got the flautas. Great flavor and great service!

Solid tex-mex here at Beantown. I have become fond of their tortas, which are foolproof solutions to lunch hangriness. I would recommend the Torta de Pescado, and the Chicken Tinga as well. If you're extra hangry, get the plate for a buck more, with rice and beans, chips and salsa. Your choice of spiciness.

Small but very good place. We were a big group and they served quickly and very good stuff. Only problem is that it is small.

we had supper here on Sat. night. these folks started with a truck takeoout and now have this bricks and mortar location in Central Sq. near MIT. it looks like they do mostly takeout to the student population but they do have a few tables to eat in. bare bones is the set up here. but the food is decent and fairly inexpensive. no table service though, it is a mostly do it yourself eat in set up. if you want it fast, and fairly cheap, but not Taco Bell, than this is a good alternative.
