At Yellow Door Taqueria, we are serving up traditional & contemporary Mexican cuisine with a New England Spin. Our traditional tacos each have an individual twist and they're all served on the tortillas we make fresh every morning. We offer a full bar and have a stacked drink menu including several different kinds of Margaritas, an extensive tequila, and mezcal list, as well as carefully craft cocktails. If you're not into the hard stuff, no worries, we have mocktails, Mexican sodas, beer, wine, and more!

This is our original location which lives in the heart of Lower Mills, Dorchester. We are right in between our two sister restaurants Lower Mills Tavern and Madre Osteria & Bar - Perfect spots to grab a drink before or after your reservation!

Our second location resides in Boston's South End at the InkBlock apartment community.

We are open 7 days a week for dinner & for brunch on the weekends!

    I love coming here. The food is beyond amazing and the staff are just so kind, diligent and accommodating. My only critique is that we’ve had a bit of a heat wave and there’s very little AC and they should fix that.

    The staff was very friendly and attentive! I ordered the Birria Tacos and they were delicious! Two tacos were the perfect amount of food. I also ordered “That Drink From Instagram” and I’d highly recommend it. We’re visiting from out of town and hope to come back!

    Made the reservation within the hour since we know it’s a tricky spot to get seated as a walk-in. When we arrived the wait time with our reservation was 30-60 minutes. We ended up waiting about 30 minutes and snagged a bar spot. Reservation wasn’t helpful in the end but we enjoy coming here so we were glad it worked out!

    Experience was ok but had to wait a long time for our table despite a reservation. I have made 3 reservations in the past and every single time I had to wait 20-35 min before being seated.

    Definitely recommend this spot! Everything on the menu is amazing. From fresh margaritas & tacos to a sweet churro to end the night- you won’t be disappointed! We had Celia as our waitress and she was so attentive and accommodating for my friends celiac requests.

    Food and drinks are amazing. Service was disapointing. The resturant itself is very small so it is confusing why service is slow. Takes awhile to gets drink, our waitress stood by the bar talking to coworkers instead of tending to the table. Literally had to order two drinks at a time because she was so slow
