Beantown Taqueria
Late-night Mexican in the 'bridge

Though no one would argue that your normal post-bar meal of cream cheese dipped in nacho cheese dipped in hummus dipped in loneliness isn't delicious, you may consider occasionally switching it up by scoring tacos from Beantown Taqueria instead. The now-soft-open 19-seater in the old Olive Tree Cafe slings "Mexican Soul Food" in the form of dos menus (one authentic, one Tex-Mex) in a six-table space bordered by faux-finished yellow walls dotted w/ subtle religious imagery (plus pics of dolphins and a naked chick!), chalk menu boards, and a slat-wood ordering window designed to resemble a street-side taco shack.

For SoBo purists, go all-in with traditional plates (stuffed with one of eight fillings like carnitas, tinga, shredded beef, etc) like huaraches drizzled with sour cream & queso fresco, crispy rolled flautas, an egg-battered & stuffed poblano pepper chili relleno, and meat/ onion/ and cilantro-only Mexican tacos so simple, you just know they dream of one day owning a farm where they can tend to and pet soft rabbits. Or if you're more like "What if we combined Texas culinary traditions with Mexican ones but called it something shorter", find culinary contentment in Tex-Mex highlights like a 12in super burrito, steak fajitas, crispy fried chimichangas w/ refried beans, nachos, and tacos loaded w/ cheese and tomatoes, gringo-style.

Assuming your late night turns into an early morning, celebrate your probably-pretty-weird evening with a hearty breakfast of serrano peppered huevos a la Mexican, chilaquiles (pan-seared tortilla chips topped w/ tomatillo sauce, eggs, and onion), and scrambled huevos vaqueros w/ potato and shredded beef, all of which makes this a tough place to argue against.
