PLACE IS CLOSED - it was open for a while, not bad Mexican food, but never very crowded - mostly groups of after-work people ordering buckets of beer or hanging out at the bar. They later started to serve breakfast, but then abruptly just closed...More

This was a great local Jersey City place with good happy hour specials. However after several years, the doors closed on Friday September 5th for good. Boca Grande will be missed. Where will we all go on 5 May? Closed:(

We visited this place during lunch hours after standard Newport mall visit. Food was good and of right portion, service was pathetic. On top they decided to award themselves discretionary 20% tip for a family of 4. Never go again.

I haven't been here in a while, but when I have been in the past, I've found it to be rather loud. The food is okay but not so good that I would ignore the loudness and inability to actually converse with my husband over...More

The restaurant is in a very convenient spot in downtown Jersey City but that was the only highlight of the place. The place looks dated when walking in and it took a while for us to be seated even though the place was empty. Once...More
