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!

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.

Drinks were great, food was so-so, service was incredibly slow. Ceviche was plain and tasteless. Coconut shrimp tacos and churros were really good.

Friendly service, a little slow because the restaurant was understaffed. Menu very limited, but we enjoyed everything we ordered. A good place for a quick and cheerful dinner, rather than a long stay.

Our server was SO attentive and sweet. Food was unreal. BIRRIA TACOS A MUST. The cucumber - pineapple margarita....perfection. Sitting outside with my loved ones under a string of lights on a beautiful summer night for my birthday was everything.

Perfect patio spot for casual drinks and a few tacos before a show. Quick and friendly service, tasty chips and guac, and then only a 10 minute walk to the theatre district.

Some items were good like the Elote, but most weren’t worth it. A bit pricey for what you get. Drinks were sent back and service wasn’t the best. It’s a drinks and hang out spot. We expected a bit more but the atmosphere was really nice. Just won’t be going back any time soon.
