“BEST Mexican food around”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Sure there is not too much atmoshpere here but you can BYOB, sit inside or out.

The food is absolutely wonderful! The family closes from Nov-April to go to Mexico and we anxiously await their return every April!

“Oh my Goodness”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This mom and pop shop is incredible. Pure authentic Mexican food at its best. After the first time, I was hooked on tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and more. The price is great, the food is finger linkin good. I invite my friends for a quick power lunch during my break from fishing the nearby majestic creeks.

“crave it all winter, eat it all summer!!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Cafeteria style, and you may have to sit with a stranger and get to know somebody! I have even seen conversations from table to table about how far away people come from. Food is good, fresh, spicy only if you want it.Lots of meats to add to burrito, taco, taco salad, nachos. Prices are good for this type of food. Not a chain restaurant.

“Pedestrian Mexican food”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

This no-frills restaurant dishes up food from vats in an austere cafeteria setting. I have found the food uninspiring but a bona fide Mexican that I know thinks it's just great, so maybe I'm missing something. Good prices.

“Go Go Eat Eat at Boom Boom Mex Mex!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

It's cafeteria style, similar to Chipotle. Unlike Chipotle, the food wasn't diced with a bunch of preservatives and other crap. I'd bet that a calorie-to-calorie comparison would show, despite similar proportions, that Boom Boom Mex Mex is far healthier. The prices are much cheaper, too. The major selling point is that the employees as well as one of the chefs is actually Mexican. You won't find that at Chipotle. You sit at long tables with Mexican-themed table clothes. There are Mexican figurines and pictures sprinkled on the walls. Overall, it's a very pleasant experience. Go Go Eat Eat Now Now!
