That's a really bad area lol. I grew up in Western MA but moved out here for work. I live in the elm park highland wpi area. It's nice enough. Worcester isn't that bad. Has some really good restaurants actually. Chipotle is here. I go to Moe's because it's closer and the burritos are bigger. There are a couple other decent buritto shops here. Tortilla Sams wasn't awful and Sol of Mexico isn't bad either.
