Boca Grande Rating:
Lunch spots and anytime bites don't get much better than Boca Grande... emphasis on GRANDE. This is one of those whole in the wall spots that will keep you coming back for more.
First the burrito is damn good. Choose from 3 different kinds of chicken, steak, pork or vegitarian. Add on rice your choice of black or pinto beans, cheese, tomatoes, grilled vegetables, hot sauce and you are on your way. Best part is these oversized gems are just ~$5, yum!
I usually like to pair mine with the house lemonaide. Other interesting points about this spot is that the lunch line is often out the door. Fear not, these guys make the fastest burrito in the east and move that line fast.
There are two things holding Boca back from a 5 rating. First they move so fast there are times when the burrito fillings are not evenly distibuted through the tortilla. For example all the cheese will end up on one end. Second, while these guys may well produce the best burrito in Boston, they are a small step begind many tacquerias on the west coast.
That all said, these are great burritos. Try one the next time you are in Cambridge. They are located just behind the Cambridge Galleria Mall.
