Reviews for Boca Grande Taqueria

Doesn't Recommend
over a year ago

Zero Stars – I recently revisted Boca after a year thinking the rude service I received was due to the female cashier and male food prep person having a bad day. Nonetheless, during my visit I encountered the same rude behaviors. I was going to recommend Boca to a new colleague and decided against it.

The food isn't any amazing and the prices are just so-so.

I highly do not recommend Boca. I couldn't write a review without selecting one star at the minimun. I would give them zero stars!

Popular local chain specializes in fresh, affordable Mexican food. – The Scene
Hundreds of area office workers and residents call this bright, happy restaurant their second home. During the lunch and dinner hours, tables can be hard to come by, so many patrons take their tacos and quesadillas to go. Speedy counter service ensures that diners get what they want--and fast.

The Food
The kitchen's "time-honored recipes" yield authentic, smoky tamales and hefty burritos filled with tender marinated chicken and steak. Every item on the menu is made daily using fresh ingredients, making Boca Grande a huge step above Taco Bell. An order of enchiladas--fresh corn tortillas filled with cheese and a choice of grilled chicken, pork, steak or vegetables plus refried beans and rice--is truly a meal in itself. Best of all, everything on the menu costs less than $4, including a huge basket of crunchy tortilla chips with freshly mashed guacamole.

"real" Mexican cuisine – I love the food here. It's not nouvelle, or gringofied -- its 100% homemade Mexican. The restaurant is utilitarian, and has all the ambience of any fast food place. Get your food to go and find a place where you can savor the flavors and high quality.

Very fresh and very good – Come here for the food. They have a room upstairs to eat, but this is basically a take-out restaurant. All of the food is very fresh and very tasty. Out of town visitors always want me to take them back to Boca Grande. The prices are good and the people are friendly. It can be very busy at lunchtime.
