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

Authentic Mexican flavors make this little dine-in or take-out restaurant a favorite with the locals. The enchiladas are outstanding as are the tamales- but I especially enjoy their bistek. Delicious! Don't confuse Taco House for the more formal Boca Chica restaurant just across the street.

I have visited Boca Chica several times with my daughter and family. It is definitely a favorite in the Twin Cities. The decor is fantastic; you really feel as if you are back in Mexico. The food is excellent and well-priced. And then there are the margaritas!!! Whew!!!

I lived in Cancun for 7 years and I expected really great tacos from this sister restaurant of Boca Chica... First the service wasn't great, although this is basically fast food... It took them until the third time to get my order right... I just wanted my tacos to have the chicken & cheese... Still wasn't right but they were... More
