Mmmm... Anna's! – Mmmm, nothing like a greasy Anna's burrito to cure that hangover! With cheap eats ($3.99 for a burrito) and ample seating, one can see why why Anna's has such a cult following. The quesedillas are delicious - just be careful, they define "quesedilla" as a fried burrito, not the sliced tortilla treat most Americans are used to.
Best burrito in Boston – I really like Anna's and go at least once a week. Their chile verde is the best I've ever tasted. The salsa is okay, but I think the hot sauce more than makes up for it. If you order the "plate" version, you'll get a sizeable portion of rice, beans, salsa, choice of meat, and two small corn tortillas. I don't like that it's cash only. I've also e-mailed them several times regarding nutritional information and have been rebuffed every time. Regardless, this is an amazing burrito place.
Just okay – I find Anna's Taqueria to be highly overrated. They're decent, but they should not be winning the awards that they seem to consistently win. Yes, they make your food incredibly fast, but so does just about every burrito place. Granted, I've only been to one of their locations, but I've been a few times. I always seem to leave hungry. Sure they're cheap so you get what you pay for, but El Pelon (RIP) charged the same prices for their burritos, and I always left that place stuffed and super satisfied. I think you're better off getting a burrito at Olecito or Boca Grande, that is, until El Pelon returns.
The Best – best burrito in the universe , nuff said

Best Burritos on Earth – The mecca of mission-style burritos. There can be arguments made from those that prefer their burritos grilled, greasy, or generally more in the SoCal style.
But make no mistake. In terms of mission-style burritos, Anna's is king. If this place came west, LA would be a sunnier place.
Popular local chain sells straightforward, overstuffed burritos and quesadillas, served fast and cheap. – The Scene
With a lack of other bargain dining options in the area, this fast food Mexican chain enjoys an amazing volume of customers--but, of Anna's four locations, it's the quietest, the location not as high-profile as the others. You have a good chance of landing a seat among the studenty crowd; service is friendly and competent, but less so when the line's out the door.
Anna's limited menu includes hefty burritos, gooey quesadillas and over-stuffed tacos; all are meals in themselves. The super burritos feature a choice of grilled chicken, tender pork carnitas, moist steak or grilled vegetables with rice, beans, cheese, salsa and hot sauce inside a giant flour tortilla. Weighing in well over a pound and costing around $4, this is one of the city's best bargains. The house salsa, chilled and cilantro-heavy, goes great with crunchy, warm tortilla chips.
Best burrito in Boston – Anna's serves up what I consider to be the best made burrito in Boston. I have been visiting the place regularly for about two years now and have rarely been disappointed with my order. The staff can be pushy at times, even when there is no one in line. They never fail, however, to load their burritos up with enough rice, meat, and toppings to keep me full for a while. The chicken has always been tender, something I can't say about Boca Grande's chicken down the street. A few months ago I was shocked to find that their prices went up. I still manage to get a burrito, chips, and guacamole for under $9--a good deal in my book.
Gross and Uncomfortable – Food was disgusting and not worth the price. The ambiance was also uncomfortable. Not an enjoyable place to be in the slightest.
Love the Tortilla, BEST BURRITO & great deal!!! – I never like any Mexican food until I tried the wrap at Anna! I simply love the chewy and tasty tortilla skin... Plus, the reasonable amount of rice and meat.
Since it is quite hard to rate a simple dish like a wrap, I'm going to compare Anna's wrap with a few others I have tried.
Unlike Boca's burrito, Anna's burrito is a little smaller BUT it has more meat than Boca's burrito... Plus, Boca's burrito has way too much rice relative to the meat. It explains why it's a few cents cheaper (if you just wanna get full, go to Boca).
Honestly, I prefer Felipe's meat filling (steak in particular) because it's more tender than Anna's steak... but Felipe's tortilla is rather tasteless and it's not as chewy. Furthermore, Felipe's service is rather slow compared to Anna's and Boca's.
*TIPS: Sometimes the burrito-maker "breaks" my burrito because the steak is too wet... if you want a nice burrito with no "hole", order the drier pork filling... but if you wanna go for taste, go for steak burrito!
*WARNING 1: If you don't like greasy food, avoid the Quessadilla. You can't taste anything other than the oil!
*WARNING 2: Anna's Burrito is addictive!!!
