The ingredients are sourced mindfully— with some assurance of quality. The proof is in the eating! The food is great. Boxcar avoids the common Tex-Mex error of too much cheese. Overall, the great flavors — mole, pico de gallo, green chili salsa— come through. This...More

Food and atmosphere and service were perfect - please open one in NJ. Easy parking at restaurant but the best thing is the food

The fajita was large enough for two. Standards, like guac and chips, were fine. The soups were good as well. Service was friendly. It's in Greenwich, so the prices are higher than other Mexican places.

Took our nieces Lauren and Emme out for their favorite food. Mexican. Haven't been to Boxcar in a long time. Not sure why as the food has always been great. The restaurant was jammed. We went at 6:00 and waited a half hour. They were...More
