You might miss this place if you are not looking for it. This isn't a Mexican restaurant this is a latin fusion cuisine in my opinion. I had the pollo milanesa and the presentation alone was awesome. They do serve chips and salsa and the salsa has cilantro which is always a plus. The two other people I was with had soft tacos and they enjoyed it. I want to go back and try the ceviche and other tapa type items soon.

...it's time to let *you* know after telling my friends and family. They've made it one of their favorites, too. This is THE place to get consistently tasty, well-prepared, pleasingly-presented Spanish/Mexican fare that's easily on the "plus side" of the South-of-the-Border teeter totter.

Small families, large groups, lunchers can sit on the patio or enjoy the tastefully decorated restrained interior - concrete painted floor, standard diner tables/benches/chairs piped with good lighting and music. It's a comfortable place to hang - think Starbuck's without the overstuffed chairs - and the food is *good*. If the S. American owners were to put tablecloths, candles and ferns out for dinner, two having an appetizer and beer/wine with dinner would be 50-100% more than the $45-55 it costs now. There's a lunch priced menu, too.

"El Macho", fish tacos, Coco Shrimp, tostadas - all wonderful. Even the salsa makes Boga at least three clicks above the "speedy with beans" joints. And, the service is good.

It's priced right. It's good. The location is convenient (N.Main/Hwy 9 just north of Windward on the west side). Excellent.

... and it won't be our last. Each time confirms our opinion that this is darn good food. My dish of choice is the carne asada. How do you manage to give a good char to a flavorful skirt steak and still keep it medium rare? My husband has had the shrimp with a butter lime sauce twice. Didn't disappoint either time. He plans to try something else next time. He thought a pork dish sitting in the pass looked awfully good. The server was attentive without being obsequious. The room has an industrial loft feel with terrific background music. It was a Thursday night this last time and there were tables of business people, family with young kids, and older couples.

While shopping in Alpharetta we were ready for lunch and looked up fish tacos. Upon arrival I needed to wash my hands. I usually start here as the restroom usually says a lot about the restaurant. My wife went first. Her rest room had a strong smell of urine but looked clean. Men's had the smell of vomit but also looked clean. The foot pedal to open the trash can was broken so it was either open with foot or hand. I choose foot. The server was nice and knowledgable of the menu. She was also attentive and not annoying. We both ordered grilled fish tacos. $10 for 3 tacos to give you an idea of pricing. The tacos came out pretty fast. Very nice presentation with small side of rice and pickled carrots. The tacos had great flavor although they were quite messy. Either the sauce or the slaw was way too watery. It actually made the tortillas soggy and sticky. If not for that I would give the food a 4. Overall it was a nice lunch. Not somewhere i would specifically drive out to just to eat. Don't sit in the middle booth as we did but maybe if in the area. Someone must have miss calculated when laying out the floor plan. There was barely enough space to get in and sit. We are smaller people and it was still really tight. Worth checking out. With just a little tweak it could be much better.
