Mexican

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!

    Showed up for our reservation and waited an hour and a half with no table, had to get take out because we had no idea when we would eventually be sat.

    The food is delicious. The delivery system is chaotic though. The music is too loud to have an enjoyable conversation but the place has a great vibe.

    The restaurant has a cool vibe but little to no seating. We made reservations for 3 and were out at a 2 top. They said we would get bar seating but they didn’t assist. We had 2 on the bench and one in a seat. It took our waiter 15mins to get our drinks. We had to ask them twice. The drinks were great! The tacos were good but they served them quickly to our table all on the same plate. It was hard to distinguish what was what. Especially since we had a severe food allergy we were concerned about cross contamination. All in all it was an okay experience for overpriced tacos.

    Yellow Door had a very cool and fun atmosphere. The menu had a very diverse option when it comes to dietary restrictions (I.E. vegetarian, vegan). The drinks were delicious and the staff was friendly. Only issue is parking.

    Street corn was amazing, as were the duck, coconut shrimp, and scallop tacos. The other 5 tacos were not as great unfortunately. Drinks and service were excellent as well.

    Really great cocktails, and well priced! Service was very accommodating and attentive. Venue was smaller that expected, but very quaint feel. Food portions are large, but somewhat average.

    The music seemed louder than usual on 80s night (Jan 31, 2021) which I didn’t like too much. My father is deaf in one ear and it was difficult for me to have a conversation with him. I hadn’t seen my dad in long time and I thought it would be nice to have dinner here, especially for the occasion. Maybe this is not the place to bring older folks or people with disabilities. Other than that, everything else was amazing.
