If you're in the mood for a "quick" Tex-Mex fix, this "convenient" local chain remains "reliable" for "filling" staples like char-grilled burritos and tacos served over the counter at a "bargain price" ; it's a "simple" operation, but it leaves its "legions of fans" "with a smile."

This is a great little restaurant, popular for lunch with the many techies who work in the area. It's kind of like a more-authentic version of Qdoba = choose the meal type (salad, burritos, tacos, etc.), pick the fillings, and watch it get made -- but, the food is infinitely better than any national chain. Gets really busy during the noon hour, but service is fast. There is seating available on the second floor.

Great Mexican fare, very good tamales, tacos, clean and attractive space, staff very friendly. The original location on Massachusetts Avenue was sold and closed, the original owner sold the second location to the manager and thankfully Boca Grande continues on.... But when I visited last time it was a empty, the location is not ideal to pick up foot traffic, I hope they survive.

This is a regular destination for me and my work friends. Not a place to hang around really, though the upstairs seating is fine. But the huge delicious burritos grandes make it with the walk and even the wait when there's a line.
