Very good overall experience. Initially slow service, but better once a manager noticed that we had been sitting for a while. Interesting menu, huge portions, great tastes. Of note, we had requested outdoor seating on Open Table. The restaurant uses those seats on a “first come first served” basis. That being said, they did move us to an outdoor table once one became available. We will definitely eat here again.

Although the restaurant is air conditioned, you can’t tell. They leave their big doors open so restaurant is almost as warm as sitting outside. Waitress was sweating as she was delivering the food. Waitress was not friendly at all. I’ve had her before and always the same. Only smiles when she drops off bill. Too late. I would not eat here on a hot evening unless you live hot weather, then I’d just eat on the nice patio

Great atmosphere and location. We went on a Thursday evening when they have live music right there in Prairie Fire so it was extra fun and $15 sangria pitchers! They have wonderful salsa and we really enjoyed all our mixed drinks. Miles was our waiter and he gave good menu recommendations and was attentive with a great personality.

Granted we were dining on one of the hottest days of the year, but it was very hot in the restaurant. The food was good, but the drinks were terrible. I had a grapefruit/tequila drink that was too sweet and then I ordered a Margarita that had a jalenpeno added. It was so hot that I had to water it down to drink it and I like spicy food and drinks. They did comp them out for us, but I wouldn't order any of those drinks again.

Despite having a reservation, we were seated in the worst table in the place (right next to an exterior door, in the middle of the traffic flow through room, and nearly sharing a table with the party next to us). About half-way through our meal we discovered a trail of ants going from the door to underneath our table.

When you schedule on OpenTable and the desecration is accepted - one would think the restaurant is open when you arrive for your reservation. This was not the case last week- as we arrived for our dinner and a sign on the door said they had closed early. Would give zero if I could.

Had reservations and were seated promptly. No silverware - got our own from another table. Table for 8 - got salt and pepper. Chips and Salsa for table of 8 didn't last - took a bit to get more. Food portions were SMALL - except for the tortilla wrap. Very little 'anything' within. Price was way too high for what is provided.

The staff was polite and on it but the food left us wanting more. Too much poblano sauce on everything. Great place for happy hour or drinks in the patio.

From the I credible staff with the ever-flowing drinks and endless chips and salsa to the amazing street tacos, coconut rice (try it!), quesadillas, and white sangria, tonight was a complete win for 4 out of 4 ladies on our girls night. The food was memorable and our server, newly trained, hit it out of the park. You would ya e thought he’d been working there 8+ years.

Thank you for being consistently incredible, Bolos!
Never had a bad meal and won’t stop coming back!

Can’t really comment on the food because I actually left before I could even order. 40 minutes and got a water refill & free chips and salsa. Never was asked if we wanted to order or even be acknowledged really. It was also not that busy only people sitting outside. Sad. Love Coco Bolos in Manhattan

The service was not good and the food was not worth the price. I had heard so many great things about this restaurant but it was a HUGE letdown. Our drinks took over 30 minutes to come and then our food was just meh and looked very tossed together.

This was our first time at Cocobolos. It will not be our last. We were impressed. Brought the whole family, including our international student. In his words, "The best steak quesadillas...EVER!"
Atmosphere is pleasant and the food is great! Best chips and salsa in KC. Highly recommend.
