From all of us at Chacarero, we thank you for being our customer and we will continue to make our tasty Chacareros for you!


LEFT TO RIGHT: Christian Moreno and Juan Hurtado


Chilean native Juan Hurtado started selling his sandwiches from a pushcart. At first, the combination of green beans, grilled chicken or beef, avocado spread, sliced tomato, muenster cheese and hot sauce was a tough sell. People weren't familiar with the soft, round bread that Hurtado bakes every morning. Then word spread that the sandwich was outstanding - and a bargain at the prices. He moved into his current location.

Hurtado hopes to open two or three additional locations around Boston, and then see if the concept flies elsewhere. The chacarero many not be the next burger, but it does have plenty of potential. - CLARA SILVERSTEIN

With plenty of tables with umbrellas, there is plenty of space for you to eat your tasty Chacarero! But around lunchtime, you have to act fast and grab your table before it's gone!




Hurtado started out with a pushcart and a lot of doubters. "People said things like 'Am I going to like a sandwich with green beans?'" But he won them over with what he proclaims is the best sandwich in the world." written by Tony Rosenfeld
