Boca Chica Restaurant
The authenticity of the food is maintained by making everything from scratch, the old-fashioned way, with fresh ingredients. Even the fiery salsa is still made with fresh tomatoes, chiles, and that special Frias family touch. Our menu includes some of the more traditional foods such as guisados, sopes, carne asada, chile rellenos, and tamales. Taste is never compromised. We also have a full bar featuring the city’s best selection of Mexican beers and premium tequilas. Voted "Best Margarita" by City Pages.
It is very cute in there, our waiter was very friendly, and it was a great night overall.
Always so much fun and a great experience! Our good, cocktails and service was as amazing as usual. Great authentic menu with amazing flavo
Disappointed with our margaritas on the rocks, found out it isn’t made fresh. You could taste it and we asked about it. Waitress was very friendly, I must say, this was one of our not favorite visits to the restaurant. I have been coming to Boca Chica’s forever, always been my favorite place, but seems like it has gone down a little. Please bring it back to the way your family had it, they took pride. I don’t mean to put you all the way down, I still love your restaurant, just had a couple times we were a little disappointed.
It was a great experience. Staff were friendly, service was punctual, and the food was really good. Great place for a family gathering!
We celebrated Mother’s Day with a group of ten and had a wonderful time. Large selection of food on the buffet and the wait staff was very attentive.
Mother's Day Brunch was wonderful and the roving mariachi band made it a perfect choice for those of us who like authentic Mexican food and joyful music
Was very busy. The staff was great about keeping the buffet stocked and clearing plates. Could have refilled drinks. Great atmosphere, love the band! Looking forward to trying them again.
Dinner and the service was good. I had tilapia with mango salsa- yum. But this was a date and this apoarently is a family restaurant. Had 2 nearby tables with screaming/crying kids, which was unpleasant. Also, where was the mariachi band? They used to have that on Saturday nights.
Hadn't been to Boca Chica for a while, but glad we went back. I had the shrimp fajitas and they were fabulous. Lots of big, juicy shrimp. My friends had the steak and chicken fajitas. There was enough food for everybody to have leftovers for lunch the next day. Next time I won't wait so long to go back.
Always great food and service. A must for dining out.
We enjoyed the food and the surroundings. It's a friendly place that we've visited often over the last 20 years. Our server was pleasant but not very adept.
Fabulous food and great atmosphere. A mariachi band was entertaining as well and even added more to a wonderful evening.
Great food! Friendly service. The real deal if you are looking for awesome Mexican. Plus, a good value. Highly recommend Boca Chica.
Great and relaxing, sat outside on a perfect evening.
My favorite restaurant. My first choice and am never disappointed.
Boca Chica is my family restaurant for a lifetime! Plus, to be surprised at the end with a birthday sundae and a song! Memories like that cannot be replicated! Love the staff and management there! We will be back!!
Tuvimos una gran comida y un tiempo maravilloso! Muchas gracias
This place is my favorite. The staff is always amazing. I recommend this place whenever I can.
I have eaten at Boca Chicad for years. This visit was very disappointing. The food was very bland...no flavor at all.
I don’t know that I will ever return.
Always good food.
We are never disappointed at Boca Chica. Food wonderful and our waitress was especially sweet. Always our favorite place for a special meal.
Mariachi music, food exactly as advertised, waitress was sweet and efficient. Not sure if there's a better Mexican restaurant experience locally.
Everything was great! Great service. Great food.
Slow service, ended up having to ask another server for help. Enchiladas were made incorrectly (with the wrong protein) and were mediocre. Rice was hard. Beef tacos and chilled rellenos were okay - not bad but not great. Ran out of dessert.
Very nice restaurant!
Perfect Sunday night
A favorite for years! Great food and sometimes the mariachis are there playing as well!
Food was great and the service was kind and helpful.
We hadn’t been to Boca Chica in a while since we moved farther away so didn’t know what to expect but we were not disappointed as the food and service was excellent?
We love the great food and atmosphere at Boca Chica!
Best in the Twin Cities by far. Authentic food, great drinks. Great atmosphere. Also good for birthdays.
You can’t go wrong here. The servers and Bartenders are very friendly. The food is delicious. The ambiance is wonderful. Great authentic Mexican food for reasonable prices.
Boca Chica never disappoints. We had our standard fare and it was just delicious. Wait staff is friendly and very attentive. Absolutely the BEST Mexican in Mpls/St. Paul and I'd say even in the US. No place makes better cheese enchiladas and their suiza sauce is the best!! You would be surprised at the fails I've experienced with that simplest of dishes at other tex-mex restarants in AZ, NM, CA and TX.... where they should know better! Boca Chica is the gold standard..... and the mole is to die for...
Boca Chica's carnitas are the best you can find anywhere! Our server, Vida, is exceptional! She is knowledgeable about the menu options, and efficient with our service. Most of all she is so friendly and welcoming each and every time we see her.
Pretty good food, inattentive service. Server came only to take orders, bring food and deliver the check.
Boca Chica was a great spot for lunch. Food was great—several people had the buffet which offered plenty of options. flautas were another favorite. Super service!
We lost power and you didn’t miss a beat. Wait staff did an awesome job.
We took advantage of the Sunday brunch and were very much pleased. First, there is plenty of seating and the atmosphere is "cozy." We had made a reservation for six and were promptly seated by a table near the fireplace. Our server was helpful, attentive, and friendly. The Sunday brunch/buffet offered a large variety of choices, even pancakes and sausage, an option that pleased our grandson. The Mexican dishes were excellent. At $14.95/person, I feel the brunch is really a good value for families. I would not hesitate returning to Boca Chica.
Boca Chica has been a WestSide gem for years! My sisters and I will always consider this restaurant 'home' for brunch, lunch or dinners! Really good authentic Mexican food! Thank you Frias family!
We were greeted and seated with our reservation right away. The hosts and servers were friendly and prompt. The salsa and chips just kept coming. Loved my street tacos and portions were good. All the food tastes great including the desserts.
