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.

Food was excellent as usual (Nacho’s and deep fried Taco). Service was outstanding - Lisa! And the place was busy at 1:00.
Nice table, lots of space, good food!
One of my favorite places for decades.
We were seated right away and our server checked with us immediately, getting us drinks and chips. The poco loco (which is our favorite!) didn’t seem as good as usual, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying them. The full menu is back - yay! - and we ordered the enchiladas suiszas , and a combination platter. The soup that comes out first is excellent. We have tried to find it at other restaurants, tried making it, and nothing compares. The enchiladas were delicious, and very filling. The platter had a combo of a taco, tostada, tamale and enchilada. Everything was fresh tasting and delicious! Boca Chica is our favorite Mexican restaurant - we even use them for catering !
Excellent as always! A perfect night to eat out on the patio also.
Exactly what we were looking for: fun ambience, authentic food, traditional musicians they came to the table and sang happy birthday to my daughter!
The atmosphere was great, hadn’t been there in many years.
Our second visit. Once again we were able to be seated on the patio. The setting was lovely and away from street noise. Service was attentive, even with the pressure the pandemic is putting on wait staff. The food was delicious. We got in just before the end of happy hour so got a good price on drinks and appetizer. Had food to take home. A bit of a drive from our house but we’ll worth it.
I have eaten at Boca Chica several times and each time the food and service has been great. I will eat there again.
We have been going to Boca Chica for years. Love the nachos, Flautas and Steak Tampicaña.
The enchiladas are outstanding- no one does enchiladas and refried beans like Boca Chica! The Don Guillermo margaritas were the perfect accompaniment to our dinner. Our server was great and checked on us frequently.
Love this place. Staff was amazing and the food never disappoints. Can’t wait to go back.
Our waitress Alyssa was fantastic! Very friendly and attentive. She was always checking in. We went during happy hour and Taco Tuesday- it was all great food!
One of the best places to eat, staff was great and management was great too. Recommend this place to anyone looking for great food!!!
When we arrived the parking lot and street were full, but there was no waiting to be seated. Our waiter was prompt and took our drink orders. The Poco Loco continues to be the best margarita I have found. One in our party also ordered the mango margarita, and it too was good, but a bit sweet. For mains we ordered the chicken flautas and seafood enchiladas. Both came with sopa- and I have never had better at any other Mexican restaurant. The flautas were done crisp but not over cooked, and the seafood enchiladas were very good. I would get both again.
The service at this restaurant continues to be excellent even in spite of staffing challenges in the industry. We will definitely be back!
We were seated on the patio--a very lovely place to dine. Our waitress was very friendly, pleasant and helpful. The tilapia was excellent and the chicken tacos very tasty. Drinks (margaritas) were delicious. The only complaint was that our soup was lukewarm, but not a large issue. Would dine here again.
Always love to hang out Boca Chica
I’ve been to Boca Chica many times. The people are always friendly & the food is outstanding!
Waitress was super sweet. Plenty of refills. Meal arrived at very different times for 1/2 of our group due to an error in the kitchen. I’m guessing short staffed like everyone else. We’ll go back again.
One of my favorite Mexican restaurants when I visit the Twin Cities. Their tequila selection is great however I tend to go with the Hornitos Resposado with my margarita.
First time there for three of our party and they loved it. We will be going back again soon.
An old family favorite we haven’t been to in awhile- my son asked to go for his birthday dinner. Good as always.
We always love Boca Chica! Great food, excellent service and we love the patio. Highly recommend Boca Chica.
Beautiful atmosphere! Live mariachi band to celebrate our 12 year wedding anniversary! Food was so delicious the staff was super welcoming.
We wanted outdoor dining, but because of the weather this was not available. The hostess found us a quiet place in the bar.
Fantastic as always
We used to live in Albuquerque, NM and Boca Chica fare is as close to that fare as we can get: the food is always excellent and the staff is very accommodating.
Best Mexican food and Margaritas in the Twin Cities. Outdoor deck and patio are shaded and quiet.
Great!!! One of my favorite places! Family owned!!
Went for Sunday brunch and was very happy to see that the buffet is back! The set-up now occupies the back room and is more spacious. This also allows for more seating in the main room where tables are socially distanced from one another. Reservations are encouraged. The well-appointed outdoor patio is also open, but seating there is limited… and cannot be reserved.
The food was delicious and choices were excellent. We received exceptional service by the very pleasant server, Adrian.
Staff are Always Welcoming. The patio is beautiful with plants and flowers.
The food is Always good!
Very good!!!! A little noisy staff friendly. Restrooms clean.
Went to Boca Chica for a birthday dinner and all our meals were delicious, the chicken enchiladas were amazing!
Delicious food! Friendly staff. Clean, quiet, and now my wife’s favorite place.
Beautiful patio and super friendly server made for a wonderful evening.
The food and service were fantastic as usual. Wonderful outdoor atmosphere.
Food was great and service was fantastic! Probably one of the best servers I have ever experienced!
As good as it gets. They do not skimp on quality whatsoever
The best tostada I have had since Mexico! I would definitely recommend to others. The food and drinks were great! Nice inside and outside atmosphere.
I love the authentic Mexican food here!! My family has enjoyed this food for over 40 years!
The food was fantastic,and if you like your salsa hot, their's is the best.We made reservation on line,were seated immediately. Our waitress checked on us ,made sure we were satisfied with our orders. We ordered food to go for my husband and his boss, they too, were happy with their food.
