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 wait staff were all so kind- we were celebrating two of our friends birthdays and I put that in the notes of the reservation and they saw that and without me even asking they brought over shots WITH sparklers!!! It was so fun and so appreciated, and everyone loved their food:) oh also their bathrooms are really cool so if ur a person that likes places with cool bathrooms, this is the place for you

Disregard any negative reviews about this food. The tacos here are some of the best you will find in the area, they’re off the charts. Food comes first in a restaurant everything else is secondary. Pretty cool spot tequila selection is decent and cocktail my girlfriend got was well crafted. Being someone who loves Mexican authentic or not and someone who works in a fine dining steakhouse I give this place a thumbs up. Also ppl complaining about the 90 min restriction get over it, shut up for a second and eat your dinner. Thank you.

The mole tamale was cold and not tasty. Some of the soft tacos were hard and stale on around the ends. The fish taco was so good with two fish nuggets that we ordered another. We only had fried batter and no fish in the second order. Also the food wasn't seasoned enough, it was bland. The duck taco was cold and tasteless. The whitefish tequilas were the best out of everything. The drinks were also good. The waitress never asked us how was our food. The table was too small and we were small to medium sized people. There wasn't enough space on the table for our food. It was packed in the restaurant and although they had partitions face level to separate the tables, the seats were so close on the benches that another person's coat was on my bench side and touching me. Because we are in a Covid pandemic, I didn't feel safe at this establishment. And parking was extremely difficult to find. After waiing in a long line to park behind the building, we only discovered that it was ONLY parking for Whole foods. We will never eat here again. We love the eatery in Dorchester where it is smaller, but the food is more authentic and seasoned. The staff is super hospitable and the drinks rock!!!

Drinks were amazing, service ok. We’re asked to leave after 90 mins and there were available reservations online for as soon as we were done. So we could of booked a reservation and come right back in. We’re declined to sit at the bar. Food was dry.

Would go back for drinks and an appetizer but not main meal.

The food was horrible. Some drinks just tasted like sour mix. Very embarrassing to bring friends here. Will never go again- restaurant is so hyped up for nothing. Recommend the Dorchester location if anything.

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 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.

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.
