At Yellow Door Taqueria, we are serving up traditional & contemporary Mexican cuisine with a New England Spin. 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 including several different kinds of Margaritas, an extensive tequila, and mezcal list, as well as carefully craft cocktails. If you're not into the hard stuff, no worries, we have mocktails, Mexican sodas, beer, wine, and more!

This is our original location which lives in the heart of Lower Mills, Dorchester. We are right in between our two sister restaurants Lower Mills Tavern and Madre Osteria & Bar - Perfect spots to grab a drink before or after your reservation!

Our second location resides in Boston's South End at the InkBlock apartment community.

We are open 7 days a week for dinner & for brunch on the weekends!

The staff was very friendly and attentive! I ordered the Birria Tacos and they were delicious! Two tacos were the perfect amount of food. I also ordered “That Drink From Instagram” and I’d highly recommend it. We’re visiting from out of town and hope to come back!

About the restaurant
We are very excited to present Olé's renovated space and updated bar menus to the neighborhood. Olé has been in Inman Sq for 15 years, bringing traditional as well as innovative Mexican cuisine to Cambridge. Our 6 seat bar served us well over the years, but we always wanted a little more. Now we have it!

Please join us in our new space name with new cocktails, wines and new bar dishes.

More about the Restaurant:

In eclectic Inman Sq. lies a distinctive restaurant - Olé, where Chef David Tapia creates authentic Mexican delicacies from Veracruz, Oaxaca, amongst others. Popular for table side-award winning Guacamole it's the perfect destination for an outstanding evening.

Back Bay
About the restaurant
After 40 years, my customers still tell me what a delightful discovery it is to step out of a Boston alley and into the heart of Mexico. That is exactly what I had envisioned when I decorated the coffered door and walls of my restaurant with the bright Talavera tiles from Puebla, Mexico. Casa Romero is located in the midst of glamorous Back Bay at 30 Gloucester and offers the best traditional Mexican food in Boston.
