Where it is: Boston, MA
How many are there? Six in the greater Boston area.
The deal: Boston is known for its diehard allegiances. Its residents are slightly more than fond of the Red Sox, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Martin Scorsese’s The Departed -- that much everyone knows. But ask them what burrito chain has stolen their hearts, and you’ll get a much less familiar answer, and not just because of their accent. Anna’s Taqueria, with six locations around the Boston area (not enough!), has been serving up Mission-style burritos, tacos, and more since 1995. One bite into the carnitas burrito, replete with melted cheese and tender pork, and you’ll finally understand your Bostonian friend in more ways than one.
