Mexican
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 location resides in Boston's South End at the InkBlock apartment community. In addition to being right off of Route 90 and 93, we are steps from SoWa Market, Peter's Park, and so much more! Our original location lives in the heart of Lower Mills, Dorchester.

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

    I am excited for this place and the menu has great potential, but I think everything was a bit over-seasoned. It is hard to ruin nachos, but they were so coated in chili powder that it was hard to enjoy the mix of the sweetness of the corn, the mellowness of the creamy sauce and cheese, and the salty crunch of the chips because of the complete spice overload. Give the flavors a chance to shine! But the ambience and service were great as were the drinks. I’d just say less is more on the seasonings.

    Service was cold and frankly rude. Apps (empeñadas and ceviche) were ok, but nothing special. Got a handful of different tacos and every one missed the mark. Sadly, would rather go to Chipotle

    This was my first time visiting the South End location for Yellow Door and everything was amazing! The Broccoli Taco was absolutely delish along with the queso and salsa’s. The Watermelon Salad was fresh and tasty along with the Birria tacos! The watermelon margarita was the absolute truth. Our server Danny was amazing, he was attentive and extremely knowledgeable. Great Job Yellow Door!

    The drinks were tasty and pretty! The tacos were also very good! I particularly recommend the scallop. My only complaint is that the tortilla is a bit small so I had to use a fork and knife to eat them.

    Overpriced carafes of sangria, filled completely with ice as well as the wine glasses. Barely had enough to refill the glasses of two guests; more so topped off what was already there for $44. Food was good, and the location was tight in size but nice

    Food was good. Great Guac and queso. The tacos were awesome - the coconut shrimp one was good. The empanadas were pretty solid as well. The drinks could have been better. For the margs, they were a bit cheap on the drinks - weren’t that strong and had a ton of ice in them.

    The food was outstanding and we savored every bit of it, but seniors like us were set aback whendraft beers for me and 2 cocktails for my wife amounted to 42% of the tab. We'll surely return for the food, but will probably skip the drinks next time.

    Came for a late lunch on Saturday. Really didn't have great service from our waitress. The tacos are good but I think overpriced. Queso was not good & the street corn nachos weren't good either.
