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 location resides in Boston's South End at the InkBlock apartment community. In addition to being right off of Route 90 and 93, we are steps from SoWa Market, Peter's Park, and so much more! Our original location lives in the heart of Lower Mills, Dorchester.

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

The place is super cute and our waitress was great, it was getting really busy and she kept up and was pleasant. Thought it was very overpriced but hey…we are in Boston!

Food was amazing! Not your typical Mexican restaurant. Very unique and delicious drink and good choices. Small plates so you can try several things. Ceviche was the best I ever had!

The tacos were quite good, on the messy side but that just means they were generously stuffed. Drinks were just ok.

We were in Boston for a NYE wedding and wanted a New Years Day brunch on our way back to RI. This place had a great looking menu and was walking distance from the Revere hotel. Every single thing we ate was phenomenal. Best queso I’ve ever had in my life and I eat Mexican in every city I visit. It’s my favorite cuisine. We had the queso, guac, birria tacos, mushroom carnitas, breakfast chimi, chicken tinga tacos, pork belly torta, pancake tacos, and elote. I also had a bebida rosa and my boyfriend had the bloody Maria which was nice and spicy. Everything was fresh and hot and yummy. We had a teensy bit of leftovers but we threw down it was GOOD

This spot is really cute and in a great location near Ink Block/South End. The margaritas were good, and the drink menu more expansive than most Mexican places. However, the tacos are tiny and not worth the price for each one. Service was okay, several issues with our order and the bill (overcharged for for drinks we didn't order, which was resolved before paying). Incredibly difficult to hear the waiter.

I had an awesome experience at Yellow Door as always. Their margaritas are top notch, I love the coconut marg! Their dips are delicious and their tacos are unbeatable. I have yet to find a fish taco that compares to the one at Yellow Door. Service was fast and great.

This was my third time dining here. The margaritas are fantastic and the tacos are delicious. The birria tacos are a must order for everyone! We all had 2-4 tacos, depending on our hunger levels. We sat outside and it’s a great atmosphere/cute spot. Definitely recommend!

The food was awful! Food was under seasoned, tacos were soggy, and for the price I expected better. Our drinks were also a disaster! The service was poor, we waited 10 minutes to be acknowledged and later we received our drinks 20 minutes after our food arrived. Do not go here, avoid at all cost.
