If you're single or want to gather a group of couples this is the place. It's unpretentious, comfortable, loud, and the drinks are delicious. Then the food is standard Mexican but, hey, you don't go Mexican for a fine dining experience. There are too many places in Greenwich to do that. Come here to celebrate or watch others do so.

My fiance and I wanted to try a new Mexican restaurant so after doing some research and looking at their nice website, we decide to take a drive from New york and try Boxcar Cantina. The restaurant is very cute. They have a bar side and a restaurant side. The bar side is great for couples, groups or singles. The restaurant side was full of children. The service was very average, and the food was below average. I had their guacamole, which was not very tasteful. I also had their vegetarian brie quesadilla and their flan for dessert. The quesidilla was not good but not bad the same goes with dessert. However, my fiance had the mini burrito, and he enjoyed it. He also had their brownie for dessert and said it was good but not great. That being said, we will not be returning to this restaurant it was nothing special.

This place serves some very tasting Mexican food, what is mostly admired is the price point specially for Greenwich. It's a great family place, can get crowded quickly since it is a small place.

As far as drinks, I highly recommend the Margaritas, really great but also really strong, so be sure you eat well while drinking them.

Recommended dessert: The Flan, out of this world.
