Lively Mexican restaurant bringing together south-of-the-border fare, a big drink menu & live music.- Google
"The actual Mexican food on the menu isn't even good."
"We had to wait 10 mins at least for a hostess to show up at the hostess station."

I would never eat at La Boca again. The actual Mexican food on the menu isn't even good. I had enchiladas that were cold, barely seasoned, and covered in cold salsa. When I saw the canned refried beans and dry orange rice on the side I knew the meal would be bad. Some other people I was with had better meals, but they weren't the Mexican dishes. Why would a Mexican restaurant have crappy Mexican food but pretty decent non Mexican food? Service was OK, but the wait time for food was much slower than expected. I've heard the bar is fun, but we were there early on a week night and it was empty. Drinks were a bit pricey and staff wasn't very attentive. Which reminds me, we had to stand in the entry for a while before the hostess came out and even then I am pretty sure it was only because someone in the bar told her to. There are much better places to eat in Middletown, better food and better service. I won't be back to La Boca.

$14 for a taco meal and I was given less then a half a cup of hard, warm-coldish rice and beans in a container for salad dressing -- as the only sides, and 3 strands of cheese on the top. $14. Just not competitive quality to the market around them. There are better and cheaper choices around them. I just don't understand it, they used to have good food at their old location. I should have returned it!!!!

Bad service, food was cold coming out, also due to the fact that the dining room was also freezing, I ate with my winter jacket on. Ordered their drink of the month and it was nothing like the picture, and this was their pictured drink on all menus. Also tasted really bad. Overall, do not come here, overpriced TexMex food, nowhere near real Mexican cuisine, you are better off eating at On the Border, at least yo won't freeze.

Probably one of the most unique restaurants in Middletown. The decor is stunning, the food rocks, and the service is top notch. I've been here for a nice sit down dinner with friends as well as later at night for fun night at their fully-loaded bar. This place has more types of tequila than anywhere in town! Check it out sometime!!

Two words: damn disgusting. Boy, if you like your food boring, bland, and generally nasty, then this place is for you! If I can go home and cook a better meal, without using any references/recipes, then you sir, have a serious problem; because my culinary skills are sorely lacking. My black bean soup was just beans in some weird gooey mixture, with absolutely no seasonings. It was tasteless (cardboard is not a taste). I mean, come on, cut up a jalapeno maybe? Green pepper? How about some black pepper? Just add something, anything. No need to trash the rest of the order, I think my opinion is clear. Although, I cannot complain about the glass of water I ordered. I suppose I'm being very harsh... but I used to live in the area and would frequent La Boca quite often. Their food was awesome. It was one of my favorite places in Middletown. I don't know what happened, but whatever it was, it wasn't good. It's sad really.

Great food . Nice atmosphere -- a little dark, but it's a mood. Kind, helpful service. Only complaint is chairs and table were quite sticky, even after an extra wipe-down from the waitress.

I was craving Mexican food and decided to go out for dinner. Ordered a bunch of food and was really excited. The meats in my entrees were dry and did not have any flavor. Rice and beans were the same and were probably sitting under a heat lamp for hours. The only time I do like going is just for the bar. The bar atmosphere I'd give a 4, restaurant I'd give a two. So we're meeting in the middle for a 3.
