My wife and kids always enjoyed and recommended La Boca at its old location up the road across the street before it moved a few years back to where it is now. We went a couple times immediately after it moved and were no longer impressed. The prices went up, the serving sizes got smaller and the food quality didn't... More

My family & I love this place! Great variety and authentic flavors. Generous portions and polite staff. On a Main Street with a ton of other options you can't go wrong with choosing this one!

We ordered the special short ribs. There was nothing spectacular about our meal. The short ribs were rubbery and over cooked. The vegetables were soggy and over cooked. The mash potatoes were the only good thing in the plate. Gotta do better. This was my first time coming here and sadly will be my last.

Typical Mexican lugar with two separate areas--bar on one side grub on the next. Large and well decorated..... Lots of daily entertainment nightly .... A Middletown classic.

Went there once. It was okay. The food was decent and most likely won't go back again. Not my favorite place to go for dinner. It's more of a lunch spot.

I was raised in CT close to Middletown, where La Boca resides. It used to have a little tiny adobe-like frontage on Main Street way before Main Street Middletown became the restaurant mecca it is today... La Boca has always been an amazing restaurant~the food, atmosphere and management have always remained sound and constant, which has allowed this little place... More

I am especially partial to the margaritas and the Mexican spring rolls at happy hour at La Boca. The rest of the food is very good but can't compete with my two favs. Yum! The bar is large and usually has a open seat. At this location there is now an open cafe area in back that is great for... More

My daughter & I stopped here for lunch. We sat outside to enjoy the beautiful day. Service was timely and efficient. Waiter brought us tortilla chips with salsa. Salsa was a bit spicy for my taste and lacked fresh flavored of fresh tomato and cilantro. We both ordered tacos. Since I can't have spicy food the waiter suggested a creamy... More

I usually base my review of a Mexican restaurant on the guacamole and margaritas. The guac didn't seem homemade. Overall, food was good , just not fantastic.
