New Jamaica Plain restaurant is the taco the town

Jamaica Plain reports that Centre Street in Hyde Square is getting a new taco place, called Viva Taco. It replaces a burrito joint.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


It's pretty good too if you're in the area.

When my son was 4 or 5 we were planning what to do on a day off and he suggested "The Arburrito!"

He had been there with his pre school class. We all still call it that, and had to explain this to their partners.

Will it be a JP standard 4.9 star mediocrity?

This is one of those locations that seems to have endless turnover -- in the last ten years it's been a pizza/sub shop, empadana restaurant, then burritos, now tacos.

It's not a bad location on paper -- takeout-friendly bar next door, compact footprint, main thoroughfare, dense residential, and plenty of other businesses have been in the area long term -- but there's something challenging about this storefront.

that spot? I remember that place fondly (reviewed it for Dig Boston way back when): good, cheap Salvadoran food, and also the first and last place I heard a Spanish-language Muzak cover of "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You."
