Yellow Door Taqueria - We're a bunch of taco-loving people dishing out Cali-Mex fare seven days a week. 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. Look for the yellow door.

The food was a bit mediocre than I remember it being however full disclosure this was my first time at this location. I think it was because their was almost too much meat (duck & chicken tinga tacos) that took away from the other flavors. I would return for guac portion and drinks.

Waitstaff was attentive, kind and excellent. Outdoor dining experience was great! Really nice heat lamps. We really appreciate how hard the staff were working to make sure we had a great time even with the many restrictions and regulations that are necessary to keep us all safe.

Sat us right next to another table even though there was 0 people in the restaurant. Very bizarre especially given the covid guidelines, but apparently it’s ok bc they have glass separators... so 6ft rule doesn’t count?

The food was simply not good. They increased the prices and downgraded the flavor and quality. I loved the Dorchester location and I’m sad to say this will be my LAST yellow door experience :(

The coconut margaritas are so good! The inside of restaurant is very covid safe with plexiglass up between all tables. The food is very fresh and has very creative menu. It is very lively but could be considered too loud if you were looking for quite. Definitely will be going back.

Food was alright but not worth it for the price. This place is way too hyped up in my opinion. Jalapeño marg was the best thing I had and that was mediocre at best

The tacos really stink. Second time I’ve been here, the duck tacos were so dry, they weren’t edible. Cauliflower taco was edible but nothing special like it is at Bar Taco. Sides were great like the Mexican corn which absolutely delicious, chips were nice and salty and the guacamole was good. Margaritas were awesome, both spicy and regular, very fresh and refreshing. Service was phenomenal but it’s a shame the tacos stink. Won’t be coming back as there are other tacos joints that was far superior for the same price.

Not the greatest food for the price. $140 for guac, the street corn and 6 tacos. The tacos weren’t the best and very small. The guac was ok...wish the chips were warm. Best taco was the Scallop Frito. The daily fish was strange with a purée almost like baby food and the Baja fish was WAY too charred. Probably wouldn’t go back. Had pink taco earlier in the summer and thought it was way better. Service was good though and food came out quick.

Yellow Door is a great casual taco spot in the South End. Honestly, my favorite thing on the menu is the Guacamole and Salsa The taco's are good, but nothing about them really stood out. Also, try to request a table away from the dumpster. The lingering scent of trash took away from the otherwise absolutely charming patio. Overall a good experience and our server was great. However, there are much better options nearby if you're looking to impress someone or have an exceptional dining experience.

This restaurant was amazing! The drink menu was what intrigued me to stop by and they did not disappoint. The tacos were delicious but on the smaller side so get more than you think if you are hungry! The restaurant also had an adorable outdoor seating area with picnic tables and string lights. Would definitely recommend for any occasion and we can’t wait to come back!

There aren't too many places that are 'doing it right' considering the current limitations and regulations on dining, but YDT is doing it all, while at the same time providing a safe and exceptional atmosphere.
