El Pelon is a very colorful little counter-service Mexican place in the Fenway. It’s on the Peterborough Street restaurant row, which means it’s got a patio out front that’s probably even bigger than the restaurant itself. It’s hard to beat sitting at one of their picnic tables with a cornmeal-crusted cod taco on a summer night.
