Review: Chilacates ‘Feels Like a Godsend’

Tacos from Chilacates.

Jamaica Plain taqueria Chilacates, which opened this summer on Amory Street, got the Improper Bostonian review treatment today, and the review is a good one.

Restaurant critic MC Slim JB calls the tacos “an essential starting point,” with fillings that are “vivid and satisfying.” He also praises the taqueria’s rendition of the Mexican street corn elote, among other items.

The bottom line: “This tiny, humble neighborhood spot may ultimately not rank as destination dining for most folks from outside JP. But for any Bostonian with warm memories of wandering off the beaten path in the Yucatan, or standing over the hood of a car eating $2 truck tacos in Los Angeles, Chilacates feels like a godsend.”
