Boca Grande in Kenmore Square

Has anyone been to the Boca Grande that just opened in Kenmore Square? The rumor from a couple of years ago was that an Anna's Taqueria was supposed to open. Whatever happened to that? At least something's opened, though.

  1. I heard it was suppose to be an Anna's as well. I'm just glad there is another food option in Kenmore. Now all we need is a good brunch place and we'll be all set.

    1. Ugh, it turned into Boca Grande instead of Anna's? BG is hideously awful.

        Are you crazy? Boca Garande is better than Anna's by a factor of about least the one in coolidge corner. Better meats, more freshly prepared, very tender pork...yum!

      2. fyi

        This is in the old Burrito Max spot.

        1. Over the past two days, just about everyone in my office has been at least once. It's ok. I definitely prefer Anna's, but Boca Grande's food is a little less greasy. Some of the choices seem a little strange (grilled lemon chicken?), but the menu is fairly extensive. It's great to have another (cheap!) option for lunch.

            The grilled lemon chicken doesn't sound like it belongs at all, but it's pretty good--no discernable taste of lemon, but that's not a bad thing in this case :).

          2. Im from San Francisco, where the burritos are HUGE and more authentic. Anyone know the size and quality compared to California burritos? Thanks.
