A Waltham Favorite Mexican Restaurant Lands on Yelp’s “Top 100 US Restaurants 2023,” AGAIN
Earlier this year, I had a chance to try a Mexican restaurant I’d kept hearing about in Waltham called Taqueria El Amigo. The funny thing about this restaurant is, I would walk by it everyday on my walks but never tried it. It looks like a hole in the wall BUT I would always notice there would be a line of people waiting for their food. So after finding out the restaurant made it onto Yelp’s Top 100 Restaurants of 2022, I decided to try it. When I tell you, as soon as I tried it I was sad that I hadn’t tried it sooner. The food was unbelievable! That being said, I want to be the first to congratulate the good people at Taqueria El Amigo for once again making Yelp’s list of the Top 100 Restaurants of 2023!
It is a family owned and run business and they’ve been serving food out of this hole in the wall on Willow street for years. Last year, they landed at #60 on the list. This year, they dropped to 84 but just being on this list is prestigious enough. Last year, it was the ONLY New England restaurant to make it. Its Yelp rating is 4.6 out of 5 and there are several 5 star reviews. Personally, my go to is the chicken soft tacos. the flavor is absolutely spectacular. You just have to try them for yourself.
Check out my pictures and review from when I went to Taqueria El Amigo earlier this year.
