We go often to meet up with friends. The staff is great and so friendly...like Cheers they know your name and your favorite drink! We enjoy!

“So-so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

We went to La Boca for the first time at dinner time. The atmosphere was nice and the waitress attentive. The food was not memorable. The rice and beans didn't taste good and the pico de gallo was oily. The taco and enchilada meats were not really tasty, mostly greasy. The presentation was nice. Maybe there are other better tasting dishes on the menu but overall, I would not go back.

“Not as good as it used to be...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I remember the old La Boca in a building north of where it is now...In the 1970s, it was owned by a couple who made it into a go-to place. The food was terrific and the margaritas even better. Today, it is a shadow of its former self. Not exactly clean, the food is so-so and the bar is a dive. It's really sad to see, but this place just isn't want it used to be.

“Good Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

New location is clean and nicely appointed. Old time menu with some nice twists. Late chicken wing selection. Good guacamole. Hefty portioned entrees. Nice mohitos and draft beers. Pleasant staff. Will return with my wife alone and also with family and friends.
