Loyalty means something in this town. When El Pelon burned down in a 2009 fire, longtime fans patiently waited through the rebuild, visiting the Brighton outpost in the meantime. The original Fenway location reopened in 2011 with the same “authentic Mexican” tagline. No reinvented classics here, just the classics themselves, from fried plantains to the house tacos, including a terrific, cornmeal-crusted fish varietal. Only a Mexican coke will do in this instance, which El Pelon can also supply.
