How Convenient For Me

I don't like to shovel. I don't like the snow either. Put the two of them together and what you get is my car looking like an igloo.

Seth (pictured) and David were nice enough to pick me up and take me to Anna's MIT.

My car got to stay cozy inside its igloo. I got warmed up by a super steak burrito with extra hot sauce.

Location Location I'm Stuck Here

T-Rex Taqueria had just opened. Maybe they didn't have their act together.

My burrito took a while to make and somehow the hot sauce was left out. The wrap was a little messy and ingredient distribution was poor. And they only had black beans. While waiting I did enjoy the decor: an eclectic mixture of fossil logos and vintage photos of professional wrestlers.

If I were in the area I'd go back, maybe even regularly. But T-Rex is no destination.

This T-Rex Taqueria meal was rated: 3.8.

Welcome To T-Rex Taqueria

Burrito speed eating rivals John Liu and Sheb both brought T-Rex Taqueria to my attention mere days after its opening.

Located on Cypress Street near the Brookline Hills T stop and Brookline High School, T-Rex is mighty close to competition at Boca Grande, Baja Betty's, and Anna's Taqueria. Expect nothing less from the self proclaimed king of taquerias.

My bet is they're going after the open campus foot traffic of the high school students and municipal workers at the nearby library and town hall.
