Boqueron Tapas + Wine

$31 to $50
Tapas / Small Plates
Boqueron is a premier wine destination in the Rio Grande Valley, having won a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for its innovative selection of 130 wines—30 by-the-glass— and an educated wine team to guide guests at this petite wine + tapas bar in the heart of Historic Market Square in Downtown Brownsville, Texas.

Advanced Sommelier Vanessa Trevino Boyd hand-selected the wine list to include bottles from boutique wineries in California to old-vine vineyards in Spain. The experience includes a gem of a small plates menu designed to go hand-in-hand with the wine list.

Chef Eugenio Uribe’s menu features classic tapas—Pan con Tomate, but he’s also creative with Matrimonio with Lemon Butter. Other highlights include an American Wagyu Bavette and Jamon, including an Iberico de Bellota from 5 Jotas and a weekly selection of East Coast Oysters. His emphasis on the best ingredients from Spain and around the world is remarkable, as evidenced not only by 5 Jotas, but by Brujula conservas.

    The evening at Boquerón Tapas & Wine was as if we were in the Basque Country in downtown Brownsville. Our table & staff were awaiting our arrival and the staff addressed our family by name. The attention to excellence was spot on from the food choices to the wine pairings. So many delicious options to choose from and served with the timing of a symphony. From the East Coast Oysters,Manchego and Membrillo, Crispy Squash Blossoms, Patatas Bravas garlic aioli, brava sauce Yellowfin Tuna, Gulf Shrimp (tastes like lobster) Maitake Mushrooms Morcilla de Burgos Torrija to the French Bordeaux & New Zealand Pinot Noirs we were unexpectedly delighted! Congratulations to culinary director Eugenio Uribe and the wait staff for an unforgettable dining experience.

    Charming place with a small but thoughtful list of classic and creative tapas and an extensive wine list. Strange that there is no tortilla! But everything we got was well executed and beautifully presented. Service was lovely. We loved it and will be back soon.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in South Padre. I ended up booking dinner here for one of those nights and was very pleased. Here are some of the highlights: - The tapas were prepared meticulously and well. - The chef focuses on dishes and ingredients from the gulf and the surrounding area. - The service was fantastic and because it was our anniversary, the chef whipped up something special for the Mrs. and I. :-) We had almost everything on the menu and here are the ones that stood out to us: 1. Crispy squash blossoms. What stood out to me was the chef's preparation of the blossom. It was vibrant and the batter was flavorful and fried well. It's worth getting one for each person. These arent' shareable portions but if you want something innovative and tasty, get this. 2. Of the cured meats, the duck prosciutto stood out. Unctious with a good spice. 3. Morcilla de burgos: I'm a fan of blood sausage and their prep was 1000 out of 10. 4. the whipped goat cheese and croquetas de Pollo and jamon serrano were out of this world good. Fresh and the croquetas had amazing flavor. all in all, if you're ever in Brownsville and want a nice evening out. I recommend this place.

    The food was absolutely amazing. I haven’t had delicious tapas since visiting Spain. Everything was cooked to perfection and had wonderful flavor. Had the croquettes and patatas bravas. A little pricey, definitely delicious though.

    Boquerón is a culinary gem! From the moment you walk in you are warmly greeted! Prepare yourself for carefully mastered culinary bits paired with outstanding and affordable wines! Chicken and Ham croquetas are perfect blend of flavors. We had special octopus tapa melt in our mouths! Beef Carpaccio paired w Pinot wine was heaven in a little bite.
