Coming from Southern California originally I've had my fair share of authentic ""Mexican"" food, and one of my biggest disappointments with Boston was the lack of quality Mexican food. There are of course generic burrito places but generally their food is...well generic. Then comes Picante! My favorite dish is the Roasted Poblano Chicken Burrito while my friend loves the chicken and rice with Picante's homemade mole sauce. Picante also has a full salsa bar with at least 6 different types, all of which are unique, fun to try, and leave you with the difficult task of deciding which salsa you want to spend the majority of your chips on. If you need beer with your meal Picante has it, along with many typical Tex-Mex style dishes (which I have not tried and therefore can not yet suggest). Also, I wouldn't call the staff enthusiatic but they get your food out quickly. All in all, I really enjoy Picante and happily make the mile walk from where I work to eat there each week.
Pros: Food, Price, Salsa bar,
