To celebrate Hispanic and Latine Heritage, we asked our colleagues at NESN what their favorite Hispanic/Latine owned restaurant is.


Alex Chimis

NESN Colleague Says: “Small hidden jewel and food is delicious and they are fast”

358 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain


Vejigantes Restaurant

NESN Colleague Says: “It’s a great, authentic Puerto Rican restaurant in South Boston! Great food and drinks, and if you go on a Friday or Saturday night they have live music too.”

El Vaquero

NESN Colleague Says: “Family owned Mexican restaurant with great service and food. Especially the Birria tacos.”
