Chacarero Closes Its Prudential Center Location in Boston's Back Bay

A pair of Chilean sandwich shops in Boston is now down to just one, as it has shuttered its newer location in the Back Bay.

Universal Hub is reporting that the outlet of Chacarero within the food court at The Shops at Prudential Center is now closed after being in business for less than a year. The post indicates that the eatery may have shut down on Friday, with the apparent reason for its closure being business that wasn't up to expectations. The existing location of Chacarero on Arch Street remains open.

Chacarero began as a pushcart in Downtown Crossing about 20 years ago, eventually moving to a takeout space in the former Filene's building nearby before opening shops on Province Street and Arch Street (the Province Street location is no longer in operation). The dining spot is known mostly for its sandwiches with grilled steak, chicken, and veggie options, though it also offers empanadas, sweet oven-fried potatoes, rice pudding, and breakfast items. The website for the original location is at
