“Great Concept - Great Food - Great People”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Boca Loca is another clever creation from the owners of Caricaturas (Corozal) and the now-local staple Desecheo. It's just as family friendly and cozy as the former and about as original as the latter. Boca Loca seeks to present the guest with a number of staple dishes from across all of latin america; Argentinian Churrasco, Peruvian Salteados and Ceviches, and so on.

Service is prompt and attentive and the decor is cool and inviting. The cushions on the seats are clever-looking, but they could be much cleaner. Do yourself a favor and just get them out of the way.

The food is well seasoned, very well cooked, well plated, and the portions are generous. Meat lovers will be pleased, since the options include everything from chicken, to pork, beef, and even chorizo (the GOOD kind, not the cheap, greasy variety that is so often served elsewhere). The wait is just a bit longer than I would expect from such a well staffed place. I would expect the place to move not that much slower than Desecheo, although the menu here is quite larger, which probably accounts for the delay: variety takes up time.

Prices are good if you manage to stick to the specials and avoid the temptation to venture on to the "a la carte" section. The offers are enticing, but the price is on the premium side. Also, keep an eye out for expensive adders such as dessert and specialty drinks: they can fatten up the check quite fast. However, if you want to treat yourself to a good cup of coffee, do so: it is excellent.

A friendly, chic and cozy place with great staff and great food. Good for lunch, family outings or even a date. Enjoy!

“Menu for more than two”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Excellent place to go with the family,quite modern. They offer plates from different countries with the option of sharing with someone else;they serve enough for three persons if you have children its just great because is just one price and a fair one. It gives one the opportunity to visit another town of PR and eat in a great family atmosphere. The frappes and sangria are very good.

“Bad Experience”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We went to Boca Loca after being highly recommended by friends. The only thing good was the waitress and the nacho Acapulco, delicious. My friend order a mix mofongo and it was not well cooked. I order the chillo stuffed with mamposteao and tostones. The fish was not fresh and looked like it was fried earlier and then warm up. The mamposteao was cold. In fact before we finished eating the nachos our food was on its way to the table and when they saw we were still eating, brought it back to the kitchen. Between ordering and leaving not a half hour. U can expect that on a fast food but not in this type of restaurant. The waitress noticed that my friend didn't eat the mofongo and enquire what happened. He explained to her and she told someone who looks like a supervisor but he did not do anything about it. Since they did not care to come to our table we did not pursue the matter further. That's why the review.

“Design nightmare”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

They thought that mixing all design tendencies would make a masterpiece of an atmosphere but it did quite the opposite. Although the food tastes good its presentation is as bad as their taste in wall papers. They should definitely simplify.
