Festive, delicious, and easy on the wallet, Boca Chica is a natural for birthday celebrations. It’s also a shrimp-lover's dream, with various crustacean-centric dishes incorporating coconut, chiles, or garlic. Latin staples such as yuca and plantain feature prominently; the green plantain balls with onion vinaigrette may sound sketchy, but they're a menu highlight. Tropical cocktails like passion coladas and potent margaritas quench the spices. Be warned, however: Reservations are not accepted on weekend nights, so you’re likely to face a wait.


Sat—Sun, 11am—4 p.m.

Reservations are not accepted on after 7:30 on Fridays and Saturdays.
