      Dunno about fish tacos but Ole in Inman Square and Cantina La Mexicana in Union Square (Somerville) are my favorites. Tu y Yo in Somerville is good if you want a fancier place w/ authentic dishes. "

      Many people swear by the Border Cafe in Harvard Square, but I find it pretty bland and touristy. I think Ole in Inman Square does an excellent and authentic job, and Jose's in North Cambridge is great, too. Not sure about fish tacos, but Ole's take-out shop across the street (Olecito) has a battered shrimp taco (if memory serves correctly) that is good. "

      The best quick take out style Mexican that I have ever had anywhere in New England would be Ana's Taqueria.  They're are two in Cambridge but they have them all over Boston actually.  (Porter Square and MIT)  It's something about the tight tortillas they use for they're burritos that make them absolutely amazing. Also it's the kind of burrito that will never fall apart which I appreciate.  The meat they use is nicely marinated and very flavorful.  I've been at least 20 times and I've never had to wait more than five minutes tops.  They have an operation that bangs it all out so fast. It's quite impressive actually! Highly recommend them.
