Sunset Cantina


Sunset Cafe is a Mexican restaurant and bar right in the heart of BU’s campus (to the extent that BU has a campus). It’s right across Comm Ave from Agganis Arena, making it an ideal spot for pregaming hockey and basketball games, especially since it has a lot of margaritas and a menu bar Tex-Mex that works for that type of thing. We wouldn’t really recommend it for any other situation, though.
