    Best nachos I've had! Get them with pulled pork, you won't be sorry. Great beer list too, with 38 on tap. I come here every time I come back to BU, it's that good.

    the place is good for drinks, although if you want to sit to eat you've got be patient because the wait list its around 20- 25 min on the weekends.They have a lot of options of beers and tequilas.

    Seriously the greatest white sangria ever. One of my favorite places to visit when I come back to BU. The nachos are awesome too!

    Sunset is definitely the college & post work hang out place in the area. Their wings and nachos are phenomenal, and their cocktail list is extensive.

    If you're drinking beer, this is not the place to order Coors Light, Bud Light, etc. Try something new! I highly recommend the Bear Republic Racer 5 on tap now.

    It's never a bad idea to go for a bigger size of nachos - they last in the fridge for a while! The leftovers are pretty delicious still even a couple days later.

    If you're undecided, you can get beer or tequila flights to try a bit of each flavor you'd like to sample.

    Pulled. Pork. Nachos. Also, every Monday and Tuesday at midnight, they have free nachos & fries.

    Best beer selection in Boston, so good. Also the buffalo chicken skewers are the bomb, as is the spinach dip.

    Order the Tyler from Jon at the bar. You won't be disappointed and you won't find your way home.

    Nachos are to die for! Substitute the chili for pulled pork. It's totally worth it

    One of the best (but most inconsistent) spot for food and drinks on the BU campus.

    People aren't kidding. The South of the Border Nachos with Beef Chili are amazing. Fan-freaking-tastic.

    Best Nachos ever. Hands down great value for 3-4 friends to split the XXL size.

    Hope you're not in a rush - service is notoriously slow. The nachos with BBQ chicken make up for it though. Also, avoid up to 2 hours before BU hockey game time - it's a madhouse.

    150 tequilas + 50 bottled beers + 38 draft beers = 238 reasons to visit Sunset Cantina (the kitchen is open until 1am too)

    It used to be great when I was in college at BU (2010-2014). Management has changed and the quality has gone down hill. Nachos are no longer to die for. Unfortunate.
