New Favorite Mexican Place

Great place for fast food Mexican food! Their salsa is fantastic and the chips and guacamole were excellent. I grabbed mine to go. Had the red Chile pork burrito, which was excellent, but noticed after I ordered that they have a green Chile mix quesadilla. Will have to have that next time... read more

Pretty average food - a step up from Taco Bell for sure - their main restaurant serves the more filling/traditional Mexican fare. Service is pretty quick, but it can get nuts around lunchtime. Usually have the flautas lunch special - $5.50 for flautas, lettuce rice and a drink is not too bad at all.

I really enjoyed the patio and the interior of the restaurant was very nice. The food was mediocre and there are many more authentic Mexican restaurants in the area (within walking distance). I did enjoy the guacamole.

The food is served hot and relatively fast. The quantity was good for the price. I prefer the food across the street at Boca Chica aver the Taco House. But if you do not feel like a more formal meal than this will do. Not much parking and only one handicap spot.

I've been here a few times now and every visit I try something new. I have not yet been disappointed. And even better are the affordable prices and the fact that they sell salsa outright. Good stuff.

What is great about Boca Chica is that the "taco house" is on one side of the road and the "restaurant" is on the other. It is the same food but one gives you nicer tables and a waiter. I'd rather pay less, get the same food, and be happy.

I've been eating here since it Opened. Originally it was a converted Gas Station. Gueremo the Owner was the Nicest Owner you had ever met, the food is Authentic and Delicious Over the years it has gotten a little Pricey but the Quality is still Awesome

This is a hidden gem in St. Paul! If you love Mexican food, you need to try this place. The prices are very reasonable, and I have yet to have anything "bad" from here. As a matter of fact, my husband and I make it a game: you can't have the same thing twice in a row! They have tacos,... More
