Editors’ ChoiceBuenoMalo, Andover Philosophy: Just like Abuela makes. Using recipes passed down by his Mexican grandmother, chef/co-owner Franco Lozano III sticks to classic preparations and high-quality ingredients. What’s Unique: During the day, the space is all fast-casual fun, welcoming families and folks on their lunch breaks with overstuffed tacos and burritos. At night, the lights go down, the music cranks up, and a garage door rolls up at the back, revealing a full bar. Standout Qualities: Soft flour tortillas overstuffed to the point where it’s hard to wrap your fingers around them, never mind your mouth. 93 Main St., Andover, 978-409-2119, buenomalo.com
Readers’ ChoiceHowling Wolf Taqueria, Salem Insider Tip: Not one, but two vegetarian options—a tofu taco and a vegetable one. 76 Lafayette St., Salem, 978-744-WOLF (9653), howlingwolftaqueria.com
