Located in District Del Sol on St. Paul's West Side, the landmark Boca Chica Restaurant is just minutes away from Downtown St. Paul. Boca Chica Restaurant has served the flavorful, authentic cuisine of Mexico since 1964. It was then that Guillermo and Gloria Frias opened the doors to their new restaurant that seated only 28 patrons. Today, Boca Chica has grown substantially and is rated "one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Twin Cities," according to the Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazineâ€™s March 2006 issue.
The authenticity of the food is maintained by making everything from scratch, the old-fashioned way, with fresh ingredients. Even the fiery salsa is still made with fresh tomatoes, chiles, and that special Frias family touch. Their menu includes some of the more traditional foods such as guisados, sopes, carne asada, chile rellenos, and tamales. Taste is never compromised. They also have a full bar featuring the cityâ€™s best selection of Mexican beers and premium tequilas.
At Boca Chica Restaurant, they have a desire to contribute to their communityâ€™s cultural heritage through their beautiful painted murals of the history and the essence of the Mexican people. These murals, painted by Rigel from Merida Yucatan, cover the walls in all three of their dining rooms. You can relax and enjoy comfortable dining in the Aztec room, the El Grito room, or the El Cortijo room.
