Taqueria El Barrio

The beloved Taqueria El Barrio concept initially debuted in 2019 from Chef Alex Sáenz and hospitality pro Servio Garcia. The brick and mortar location opened to great fanfare in the shadow of Boston University, and now Taqueria El Barrio has found a new home down the street at Time Out Market Boston. With flavors and ingredients reminiscent of Northwestern Mexico, Taqueria El Barrio serves up authentic Mexican favorites including gourmet tacos, nachos and quesadillas. Sáenz and his culinary team fills flour tortillas, made in-house, with a tantalizing assortment of lovingly-prepared proteins (carne asada, pastor, carnitas, birria, chicken, fish) and spicy vegan chorizo. Guests can finish off their meals with mouth-watering churros featuring toppings such as dulce de leche, sweetened condensed milk or Nutella.
