It might be separate technically but the businesses are connected and that arrogant wannabe hipster bartender Brian needs to be fired. Denying service to a paying customer because you didn't agree with something on their Facebook is childish and far beyond place or his call. I hope he's jobless very soon. Over privileged pretentious people like him don't deserve to... More

I am way past getting a kick out of grungy college town eateries. Walking into this place we almost changed our minds because in keeping with the laid neo hippie style the tables outside had not been cleared for much longer than it takes the left over lettuce to wilt and cheese to coagulate. Inside though, things changed -- still... More

We just went on Friday night. The place was hopping but the wait wasn't bad. Our waiter was friendly and walked by frequently to check on us. The food came out quickly and was delicious. The beef chimichanga was terrific. My son had a veggie sandwich option and liked it. My only caution would be that even though I asked... More

Good mexican food. Took my son and his friends and they ate two baskets of chips and salsa. I had a chicken bowl with rice and beans which was wonderful. My husband had Chicken Burritos and they were vey good. Salsa was fresh and plentiful.

We enjoyed some excellent late-evening food at Boca Fiesta. The rice bowl was fantastic, as was my husband's burger. The decor is fun. Had we been in Gainesville a bit longer, we would definitely have gone back.

On Sunday's they have a Bloody Mary Bar; order you drink and take it up to the bar and put all kinds of yummy things in it "a meal in a glass". I had the pork enchiladas, they were very good. My husband had the steak burrito which was also very tasty. Our son had the elk sausage and was... More

All of the above we're fantastic. The service was stellar. Sonja was quick and fun. Wild night is a tasty brew. Fried Mac and cheese blew my mind! Always a good time. I will be back my next time though town

Really interesting items on the menu, so I tried some things that you normally wouldn't see at a Mexican restaurant. I shouldn't have, but even the regular tacos my boyfriend had were pretty bad. I had duck sliders and the duck tasted like it was sitting around for days. The meat in the taco had a very odd flavor to... More
