All I can do at this point is sing the praises of this restaurant yet again. It is in my top two favorite places, and my top if I'm in the mood for mex. My friend had the Tacos al Carbon, which I usually also order. I was a piggy this time and ordered the lunch fajitas. Oh, my, yummy yummy yummy! The steak was cooked to order. I also had plenty of sautéed onion, peppers, and tomatoes. It really was a nice portion for lunch.

Our server, Jose, was super. He's a new face for us, but maybe not for the restaurant. He did a great job and will be a super star.

Great service. My breaded fish taco was a bit on the over breaded side but still very flavorful.

First time at Cinco , took my mom and BF. I made reservations but really did not need too because we were the only ones in the restaurant. We loved the salsa that came with the nachos. It was super tasty than any I have had.
The food was good but the portions were very small. The only part of the meal that none of us liked were the black beans. They were very bland and on the hard side.
Other than the black beans , everything else was very tasty.

Wonderful meal. My friend and I got our usual lunches, the Tacos al Carbon w/steak. They were perfect as always. We also had the guacamole, which has always been good, but seems to be even better the last two times. I don't know if it's the ingredients are fresher or a different preparer. We also had regular frozen margaritas w/salt. I've never had a bad marg here. Our server Edgar was fantastic also. He kept our water glasses filled and checked on us just the right amount. We'll be back...we always are. :-)

Fantastic meal, as always. Of course, we asked for our favorite server Miguel. He is the best! We actually pick our lunch day around his schedule. I met a friend for lunch and we had our usual one margarita each and the Tacos Al Carbon w/steak. The guacamole appetizer was the best yet with nice chunks of avocado. It is simply fantastic food reasonably priced. I haven't been for dinner in a couple of years since I now live over an hour away, but lunch is always easy to get in and out and still have taken our time.

We took our Mother here because the first time we visited it was excellent from the food and service. This time not so much- I want to say maybe it was because it was the afternoon and it was also Mothers Day. The service was slow, the place was disorganized and this just wasn't what we were hoping for this time around. I will give them another chance to see if that was just an off day.

Food was good, service was good, however they were unable to find our OpenTable reservation. Had to wait well past reservation time to be seated.

Great Mother's Day reservation. Initial service when table is recognized by server was slow. One dish item was not seasoned enough with flavor. Other dishes were tasty.

The food was good but I was a little disappointed in the guacamole. It was good but nothing special.

I can no longer recommend Cinco's.. We have frequented Cinco's since it opened and have had good meals and great service until recently. The service was still very good but unfortunately the food couldn't come close to the service. The corn tortilla's were bland, the tomatoes I ordered for my grandchildren were old, and the re fried beans were puréed. Yuck!
The skinny margarita was skinny because it was nothing but ice.
The best part of our meal was the chip- still fresh and served with yummy sauce.
I wouldn't write a bad review but this was a good restaurant that seems determined to go by the wayside.

When we arrived at Cinco's, they had no record of our reservation. I showed the hostess my email confirmation, however she just kept repeating they did not have our reservation for 8. She was able to accommodate us in the bar, however it's pointless to make a reservation on open table if they don't honor it. Additionally, we had to request a birthday acknowledgement even though it was requested in the reservation. Everyone at the table later had an upset stomach from the food. Not sure why that was..

I loved the food as always but the service was horrible. Our waiter was way to slow. We ordered a burrito without the pork and when we got the order.. there was pork in the burrito. I was so upset. Then we waiting for a new burrito to be made. Then when we were done with our food, we waited for the check and it was like the waiter forgot about us. The manager came up to us asking if we needed anything else and we told him we have yet to receive our check. Then when I got the check, they charged me with 2 burritos instead of one. We waited some more to get it fixed.

First, ask to be seated in Miguel's section. He is fabulous! I moved a couple of years ago and still drive nearly an hour and half to come here roughly every other week. A friend and I have lunch here and always ask for Miguel. We also get the Taco's al Carbon 99% of the time. I love how they cook the steak bits how you like them. I'm medium. The guacamole is always a treat as well. To make everything a tad more enjoyable, we have our frozen margarita's with salt. Yummy. It's worth the drive every time.

Love love love this place. Met a friend there for lunch and we had our usual guacamole, and Tacos al Carbon. I always get them with steak medium rare. I like that they are cooked to order and always come out cooked just how I order them. I didn't get it this time, but the steak and blue cheese flat bread is great for lunch as well. It is never crowded at lunch, but I have seen it busy at dinner. Still, score your Open Table points and ask for Miguel. He is fantastic.

A good classic Margarita is so easy to do. And apparently even easier to mess up. I started with the house Margarita, listed on the menu in 16oz, 24 oz, etc. Even though it said 16 oz right on the menu, it was served in a 8oz over size rocks glass. The waiter was perplexed when I pointed this out, but went back to the bar manager. He brought back an additional 12oz glass.

If you sell your drinks by size, you should serve in the right size glassware.

In both cases, even though I asked for "light on the ice", the glasses were crammed full of cubes.

The drink itself was overly sweet, with only a hint of tequila.


Unless you are looking for lightly spiked lime-ade, don't bother with the house.
And you need to keep them honest on the drink sizes.
