About the restaurant
Boqueron is a premier wine destination in the Rio Grande Valley, having won a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for its innovative selection of 130 wines—30 by-the-glass— and an educated wine team to guide guests at this petite wine + tapas bar in the heart of Historic Market Square in Downtown Brownsville, Texas.

Advanced Sommelier Vanessa Trevino Boyd hand-selected the wine list to include bottles from boutique wineries in California to old-vine vineyards in Spain. The experience includes a gem of a small plates menu designed to go hand-in-hand with the wine list.

Chef Eugenio Uribe’s menu features classic tapas—Pan con Tomate, but he’s also creative with Matrimonio with Lemon Butter. Other highlights include an American Wagyu Bavette and Jamon, including an Iberico de Bellota from 5 Jotas and a weekly selection of East Coast Oysters. His emphasis on the best ingredients from Spain and around the world is remarkable, as evidenced not only by 5 Jotas, but by Brujula conservas.

Boquerón is a culinary experience every time… from the moment you walk in you are greeted with a smile. Tuna plate is a fresh exquisite blend of flavors ! The unexpected blood sausage with sliced apples will blow your mind… all paired with their recommended wine !

We visited to take advantage of the Father's Day prime rib special and were so impressed by the service. The staff was so helpful and eager to help. Everything was excellent from our table being ready on time, calling to confirm our arrival to our departure.

The table for two are too small. Can’t really try different plates without having the items come out staggered. I know this won’t change anything but it makes it hard to share multiple plates from appetizers and meals. The bread alone took up a lot of real estate. It was delicious though. The Berry Cute dessert was delicious and looked awesome also. (Photo op) lol

About the restaurant
Alfonso Salazar, better known as “Dirty Al” originally started shrimping as a young man with his father and 6 brothers. In 2003, he and his youngest son, Cameron, who graduated from Culinary School, transformed his bait stand into a restaurant where together they have been known for having “The World’s Best Fried Shrimp”! In 2005, his other two sons returned home to help grow the business. To this day, they now own 7 restaurants on beautiful South Padre Island and across the valley and continue to bring only the “best” Gulf Seafood to each customer’s table.

Food was good , they put their own twist on things that you wouldn’t expect, gravy on the mash wasn’t expected and the ajusus on the prime rib wasn’t normal. Bananas foster had a cake in it.
