Annas never fails to disappoint as a solid Mexican food experience. I wasn't very hungry so I got a taco especial al pastor and it was the perfect amount of food and they don't skimp on any of the ingredients. I was with some friends who were visiting from California and they thought it was a 6.5/10 where the best tacos they've had are close to 8 or 9. That's pretty strong for an East coast joint! More...

Had the late night munchies on a Tuesday 10pm and this place was opened. There were plenty of parking on the street at that time. I ordered a super size quesadilla with rice, beans, sour cream, guacamole, spicy beef, jalapenos, and salsa. It was delicious as far as quesadillas go. Horchata for drink. I like the cinnamon flavor and it was not too sweet. Recommended. More...

Anna’s is always amazing. The best authentic Mexican food I have ever had anywhere. I had them cater a party for me once and everyone raved about the food all night. I go to the newton location often. They have recently started charging extra for a lot of stuff which is fine, everyone does now. My only complaint is that they skimp on a lot of stuff recently as well. I love their salsa and used to ask for extra but would just get regular. Now I have them put it on first then ask for more but still end up with a tiny serving. If your customers are going through fixins’ like salsa and veggies quickly then simply make more! Don’t be cheap towards your customers! More...

This is a fine spot for an authentic, quick, and cheap meal. My order: regular size burrito on a wheat tortilla, steak, guac, rice, pickled onions, pico, and lettuce. You can easily tell that this place is a local favourite. There are two lines for serving, and ample seating downstairs. There seems to always be a line. Lunch is about $8. The food was expertly seasoned. The tortilla was warmed up before the burrito was made.The layout of the restaurant is thoughtful. Dining only downstairs. two lines to order in. elevator for handicapped access. water and utensils on both floors for dining. I will absolutely come here often, and I look forwards to many delicious meals here. More...

Very reasonably priced, quick tacos/burritos. I really appreciated how my burrito was stuffed to its fullest - i could barely finish it! The chicken and the carne in red sauce are the only types I've tried so far but i liked both. I enjoy a little crisp on my burritos for structure so I like to ask for mine to be grilled. It makes a huge difference and helps keep the burrito in shape :) last time I went I forgot to ask for it and my saggy (but full!!) burrito was so hard to keep together. There are locations for anna's everywhere so I'd recommend anyone craving tacos give it a try! More...

Update- had a small steak burrito. The toppings were all good- guac, rice, beans, sour cream, sauces, and jalapeño.  Not into the cut of meat they use as steak though. It tastes like kind of more of a stew meat, which I don't associate with a classic steak burrito. From before: Quick service, amazing guacamole and chips, and a tasty carnitas burrito with super spicy sauce. More...

Had a huge taco bar for our wedding and EVERYONE loved the food! I would absolutely recommend them for catering for any event! Downfall, they forgot the sour cream. This was a huge disappointment.

I've been coming to Anna's for years, and they're a solid choice for a cheap burrito. I always get a super burrito with steak. The ingredients seem fresh and it's always hot. I'm not the biggest fan of the tortilla chips here, they're pretty generic. I prefer house made chips. They have lots of yummy drink options too. Def a great cheap lunch or dinner option. More...

I come here often due to convenience (steps from the porter t stop) and usually I'd give it 3 or 4 stars. The chicken tastes dry, the ingredients never blew me away, but WOW. I ordered the al pastor speciality tacos last night and they were fantastic. Succulent, spicy beef, drizzles of guacamole and salsa, and a sprinkle of cilantro and onion, all on top of hot corn tortillas.  I got 2 for just $7! I'm 100% coming back for these. More...

Anna's is a must if you're in the Boston area.  Reminds me of all the times I used to come here for lunch during my free blocks in high school.  You have not had a quesadilla until you have been here.  Their quesadillas are like intense burritos.  The put the cheese in a tortilla and sear the tortilla giving it a great crispy crunchy texture.  Then they open it back up and add all your food inside of that and roll it up like a burrito. You can't go wrong with any of the meat options from chicken to pork to steak.  This place is not even comparable to Moe's, chipotle or qdoba. More...

Honestly not sure how this place doesn't have a 5 star rating. I've been eating at Anna's since I was in high school and their burritos are just as bomb as they always were. I live in California now and just reviewed a Cali burrito spot and said "it's a top 3 burrito I've ever had". The reason it isn't #1 is because Anna's is far and away the best burrito I've ever had. Every time I'm home I get Anna's. I'm boarderlined offended as to how the ratings are lower than a 4*. Honestly don't buy those ratings. Anna's is 5* and always has been. More...

This is one of those places that tis like Qdoba and Chipotle but so much better!Went here with a former frequenter. I got a grilled veggies burrito. The assembler grabbed three large veggie pieces and sliced and mixed them before putting them in the burrito. This was neat to see and had a very good flavor. My one complaint is that the line moved slowly. Seating is in student food court area... Except there are few tables and chairs. More...

Overall, good food for a decent price, but a lacking inside.FOODQuesadilla w/ half chicken, half veggies: 4/5First off, I like that you can put some chopped grilled veggies in your quesadilla - huge game changer. Like Felipe's (a rival Mexican place in Harvard Square), the quesadilla was basically a burrito where you can load it up with all sorts of fillings. For the quesadilla though, they crisp up the tortilla and melt the cheese inside! I asked for the green hot sauce, but personally didn't find it very spicy, and my tolerance is very low, so go for something hotter if you want a kick. AMBIENCE: 3/5I've been told before that Felipe's is usually considered Anna's rival, but in terms of ambience, Felipe's has this place beat. Anna's isn't an evening type of place. It's a smaller store and didn't appear to offer alcoholic beverages. If you're going for a casual meal with friends, then this would be perfect! More...

Anna's is a Boston staple. Burritos are amazing because of the texture of the tortilla and the quesadillas are fun and cheesy.

No matter how many Mexican places I try, NONE even come close to Anna's. I even went to El Pelon Taqueria which is rated #1 in Boston by Yelp and the meat was nothing like the tender, juicy, fresh meat at Anna's. Here's my secret for the perfect meal at Anna's: always get the quesadilla. Basically it's a burrito but the tortilla is fried on the hot top, so the outside is flaky and crunchy and the whole thing is warm and crisp and not soggy. All the workers are Hispanic, unlike El Pelon. I've recently switch to being a vegetarian and last time I went I got the quesadilla with cauliflower and zucchini and it was absolutely amazing. Never have I had better Mexican food. More...

Why oh why did it take me so long to visit one of these locations? I heard so many good things but still was hesitant. Well on this fine day I wanted to eat tacos so bad and I decided let me give it a go. The menu options are something else. Everything on there is just appealing, have to be careful with some places cause that's how they get you. Thought that would be the case here and it wasn't.You walk in and that is kind of weird cause there are 2 serving stations and a cash register in the middle. If it is your first time going there you are kind of lost cause you arent sure why there are 2 places and there are no signs that tell you where to go. But once you know where to stand the rest is magic. The Food:OMG it is so good, the salsa is so fresh and so delightful. The food is so good the smell is amazing. I had the chili verde pork burrito and my oh my. They are not as big as you would find at other chained restaurants but  you wont find their taste either. Writing this review is making me want more now. What else could you ask for then low prices and great food?The staff was great More...

Okay so this place is AMAZING. It's set up similar to Chipotle except it shits all over Chipotle. Anna's is excellent in house or to go. There are 8 locations 2 in Brookline, 2 in Cambridge, 1 in Somerville, 2 in Boston and 1 in Newton (which is the one I frequent). Anna's serves up some authentic Mexican cuisine, but my recommendation is the Super Burrito. The Super Burrito remains superior above all other burritos because of its delicious taste, and it's ability to hold together no matter what. I believe this is because they steam the tortilla (with or without cheese). I add white rice, chicken, corn, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, and their house made special hot sauce. Anna's is vegetarian friendly too!  I highly recommended if you like Mexican, especially burritos More...

Wow. I stopped by because I was in the area and wanted a snack, so I decided on a single al pastor taco and a horchata. I was blown away. The meat was incredibly flavorful but light at the same time and the combination of meat, onions, cilantro, and lime were just magic. This ended up being so good that I had to turn this into a mini meal and ordered another. More...
