We at Boca Grande are committed to serving fresh, healthy food that is well balanced and nutritious as well as being flavorful and interesting. None of our dishes or recipes contains any chemical preservatives or processed food items. All of our sauces and marinades, including our hot sauce, are made on the premises with fresh ingredients.

How We Prepare

All our food is made fresh daily. Each day, early in the morning, Jose cooks the beans and rice for the noon time crowd, while preparing our fresh pico de gallo of chopped tomato, onion, and cilantro. Just before the rush, Our crew prepares the lime infused salsa, which is just slightly picante, and our rumored best-in-town guacamole made from grade A Hass avocados. A few minutes before noon, our fresh flour and corn tortillas arrive, sometimes warm. About the same time Maria turns on the steamer, and fills it with an assortment of vegetable and chicken tamales that she has made with the fresh masa. Then the marinated meats, chicken and vegetables are skillfully grilled on our open pit throughout the lunch hour. After lunch, we begin again, and prepare for dinner.
