2022 Guide to Employee Engagement and Food

Based on Q4 2021 survey responses from hundreds of professionals across the country, we uncovered data on aspects of employee engagement, the workplace experience, and food.

When we’re looking for restaurant partners, we’re searching for the best of the best from trendy downtown restaurants to scrappy food trucks to hidden-gem mom and pops. We’re proud of our roster and each year we celebrate it with the Best of Fooda awards, asking you to choose your favorite. The votes are in, and the People’s Choice Award for Minneapolis goes to Boca Chica.

People’s Choice – Boca Chica

11 Cesar Chavez Street, Saint Paul, MN 55107

Opened by the Frias family in 1964, Boca Chica is a Twin Cities institution. Serving up flavorful and authentic Mexican cuisine is their trademark and its won them spots on a number of Best Of lists, including this one. Maybe it’s because they serve traditional dishes such as guisados and sopes, maybe it’s because they make just about everything from scratch, or maybe it’s because they’ve cracked the code on how to make a perfectly fiery salsa. Whatever the reason, people who like lunch eat lunch at Boca Chica.
