Nice relaxing environment, outdoor seating and very good happy hour. You need to ASK for the happy hour menu but it's pretty decent and you can get a $5 burger, $3 beer and $5 drinks. Great spot to unwind after a long day!

Overall very impressed, the restaurant was busy when we went but the food came out quick and was very good. Large portions and good service. Highly recommend the fish tacos.

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!

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 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...More
