Cocobolos was a complete disappointment. When this restaurant first opened it was awesome, classy, busy, delicious drinks and food. Now unfortunately it’s the opposite. Full of flies, very dirty, the food was horrible. The staff not trained to wait on people. Overall awful, couldn’t wait to get the check and leave. Ordered food, didn’t eat it. It was disgusting. We paid for it didn’t complain also left a 20% tip but we will never go back. Just awful.

Sunday afternoon on their patio with drinks and tacos… great way to spend a lazy Sunday! Jesus was a good server and the food and drinks ( house margarita & beer) were good too. I wouldn’t say the total experience was outstanding or amazing but definitely decent.

Very unhappy with the service. Had to ask 3 times for my alcoholic beverage. Sat for awhile with no refills on water and chips/salsa. The food wasn't worth the money. Won't be going back.

Cocobolos has the best happy hour and best ambiance in the South OP area in my opinion. We ordered the black & white pizza and the chicken fajita quesadilla and both were excellent. My margarita was a little on the sweeter side and low on the alcohol content than I like but not terrible for the $5 price tag. Our server was friendlier than some we've had in the past so this was a good experience overall.

Went for lunch and it wasn't busy at all. 3 of us were seated first and 2 joined later. The 2 that joined were not greeted in a timely fashion and had to wave down waitress for drink order. The 2 also never received any menus, silverware or waters. Server would drop off items and immediately leave without asking if we needed anything else. We had to wave someone down every time we needed something. No music and no energy in the restaurant made it a dull experience. Also specifically mentioned in the reservation that it was a 51st B-Day lunch and another guest mentioned it to the server. No Happy Birthday, no nothing! Super disappointed!!!

Overall bad experience. Asked the waiter to relate my vegetables and rice on my fajita for rice. To which she responded she could easily do. I was shocked and responded to find out that it ended up being 4 extra dollars for a fry that was supposed to be replaced. Additionally, when I received my chicken fajita I was disappointed to find out that there were only 6 measly pieces of chicken. I called the waiter over and instead of fixing the problem she said she would ask the kitchen staff about it and never ended up coming back. Should have been a quick and easy fix on the waiters part and should have never been sent out of the kitchen looking like that.

I’m not really sure what’s going on with their hours but I made the Rezi for 8pm and by 8:30 the server was telling me the kitchen was closing. And that’s very confusing since reverse happy hour is at 9pm. This isn’t the first time I’ve been told that the kitchen is closing early, but it affected this meal and is quite disappointing. Otherwise the food is pretty good and the salsa there is some of the best. It’s thick with a Smokey-ness to it and not just running and bland.

We had a large group of 11. Ordered pitchers of margaritas and queso to start, both were very delicious! My grandson ordered chicken alfredo, loved it. I had bacon wrapped shrimp, loved it. My friend had a mahi-mahi dish that he ate all of, so I would say, he loved it too. Everyone was happy with the food and drink selections. We went early, around 3:30 on a Saturday, so I think our service went smoother than peak hours would have. We love Coco Bolos and will definitely go back.

Tyler was our server & she was outstanding! She was prompt, thorough and didn't miss a beat! She got everything 100% right and made great recommendations! The food was also delicious - warm and flavorful and timely! The salsa is super tasty & my husband likes the hot salsa too! (he says the hot is very hot!). The atmosphere was great & fun, its an open environment so a bit on the noisier side but not overwhelming and it was a great atmosphere overall! We can't wait to go back!

Worst service every!!! The food was cold and the beef taco was nothing but chucks of fat no meat, not to mention the fajitas was a soupy cold mess. The first thing out of our waitress was the kitchen closes in 30 minutes and then leaves for 15 before we could order. All four of us dining, are in the restaurant business and was appalled at how everything was handled to the men being served first to the eye rolls of the waitress!

Server was new. Lots of mistakes, but she was attentive and very nice. Queso appetizer came out burned, it was bad... should never have been served. It was replaced - but even tho Manager came by the table to apologize, it was not removed from the bill. Should have been. Drink orders messed up 2X. Excellent food though. Thanks for being open - we’ll be back, but you guys are better than our experience was on Saturday night. A voucher or a free drink or whatever would’ve gone a long way in this case.
