Beware The Chicken Roja
Times past, Felipe's has run out of things like my beloved chicken verde, beans, or burritos altogether. This time was different, worse. Felipe's took the chicken verde off the menu - about a year ago. My heart raced. What was I going to do? The man behind the counter recommended the new dish in town, the chicken roja.
Let's do it.
Some observations. The chicken roja:
- Is not nearly as good as the chicken verde
- Is very messy
- Will stain your shirt

Three Amigos At Felipe's
When these two came north for the weekend, we hit Felipe's after a night of casual drinking. How things have changed since college.
Pretty Girls Make Graves And Tacos
I do not remember if the women that made the tacos were pretty. In fact I think they were men.
This show was tough to beat. Topped off with Felipe's, it was definitely one of the best nights of spring.

Felipe's Shuts Door On Boston Tourists
The Boston tourists were my friends Brian and Maria. We went to Felipe's Taqueria after meeting up at a bar. We got there around 2:15 am, and Felipe's was packed as usual.
But there were no more burritos.
I don't mean they ran out (which has happened before), I mean they stopped selling them.
Felipe's After Bar, No Chicken Verde
A few of us decided to try and beat the Felipe's rush by leaving the bar at 1:30am. We were not successful.
There's been a lot of speculation that the Boston area burrito title is up for grabs. Given the bitter rivalries and remarkable similarities between Anna's, Boca, and Felipe's, it's no surprise that these are usually the three finalists. DJ Turbz (top) and Chris (left) give the vote to Felipe's.
The chicken verde is only available at Felipe's. Better get there before 1:30am if you expect there to be any left.
No Mas, No Mas!
The big guy in the lower right is blockading the door as drunk students charge. Think European soccer match stampede, but for burritos.
Late Night Sour Cream
Felipe's has a habit of running out of food late at night. Fortunately they had just what I needed. The chicken verde cures all.
Kevin, pictured above enthusiastically points to some sour cream on his "Dammit how does a burrito place run out of beans?" burrito.
As usual, Sara didn't get anything.
Peppers: Red, Yellow, Green
It had mayonnaise on it. Poor girl.
Felipe's Petition To Stay Open Later
According to Junior Burrito Analyst John Furnari, they are collecting signatures to petition the state for a later closing time. Currently, they close around 2:30 am or so on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The goal is 4:00 am.
Where do I sign?
Felipe's Abandons The Diced Jalapeños
I don't know whose idea this was, but its discovery made my day. I love the constant improvement. It makes the burritos better for us all.

John and I initiated our new intern today with a standard burrito ritual. John got a nice parking spot over in Harvard Square, and I got the chicken verde. Sara, our new intern, has a fondness for spreadsheets. We rule at HR.This Felipe's Taqueria meal was rated: .
Welcome to Felipe's TaqueriaMap) since Newbury Comics first settled upstairs at the Garage many years back. Felipe's is a new entry into Boston's small world of burrito options and people are taking note.
People say change is always good, but in this case, change was a necessity. You see, Felipe's took over where Real Taco used to be, one of the worst places ever created. It was horrible, but that's all in the past.
Felipe's offers the standard menu items (Super Burrito, Burrito, Taco, Quesadilla, and Plate) plus a few extras like their Tostada and a condiment bar. The real differentiating factor is the hours. They close somewhere between 2 and 3 am Thursday through Saturday. Waking up with an undigested burrito and a puddle of liquor in your stomach isn't the best feeling, but an after bar snack always seems like the right thing to do at the time.
