Breakfast burrito with mostly bread, rubbery eggs, miniscule amount of bacon and way too much pico de gallo, particularly since I asked for none. Refills on coffee never arrived. Hosts were flummoxed at a large group and unable to be flexible or cope. Given seating...More

Pretty straight-up Tex Mex menu, (tacos, burritos, chips 'n' salsa, etc.) but very fresh and vibrant flavors. What makes it fun is the atmosphere (part hipster hangout, part art gallery de la Muerte, part friends-getting-together-to-celebrate-their-latest-triumph). Drinks are excellent - definitely one of the better margaritas...More

This funky little downtown gem goes beyond a typical taco and offers many varieties with super fresh ingredients. No skimping on the drinks, even the house marg is flavorfuland well mixed. Don't forget the chips and queso!

Went there after a long day, didn't expect much, but OMG were we pleasantly surprised... Very good food, the bartender makes some awesome drinks, and our server was Bobby the most friendliest and helpful person ever (even though we went there at midnight)..

Small restaurant, with a patio. Mexican menu. I had a beef burrito. It was huge and I ate only half. Very tasty. Vegan and gluten-free items.

Quick visit to Gainesville and limited choices on a Monday at 9pm led us back to an old favorite. Boca Fiesta didn't disappoint. Great cheap drinks and awesome food! Our server was super helpful and friendly. Chimichanga and burrito were filling and tasted super.

Visited Boca with some friends and I'd have to say the decor is quite different. Wait staff was pretty friendly. Received chips and salsa to munch on prior to our meals arriving. Salsa was great and although the chips were ok, many were small pieces...More

We went with our family after moving our daughter out of her apartment; we were tired and had our little black mouthed cur dog with us. They sat us outside on the porch, which was a lovely setting under a big umbrella. Great atmosphere. Quick...More
