Beantown Taqueria specializes in spicy dualities. One side of their chalkboard menu splits off into authentic territory, boasting tacos on homemade corn tortillas and tostadas that Thrillist Boston claims will satisfy "SoBo purists." The other side embraces crispy Tex-Mex classics such as burritos and chimichangas drizzled in sour cream and guacamole. Guests stroll up to a counter whose wooden slats evoke a street taco stand, placing orders until 11 p.m. from Sunday to Wednesday and until 4 a.m. on weekends.
