Great service, very disappointing food. Poor meat quality masked by too much sauce.

Our first visit, and how great! Love the open-air garage doors that make dining indoors feel like on a terrace. Fun, casual, interurban vibe. Great service and very good food! We'll definitely be back.

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.

I want to stress this first. TOO LOUD!!!!! Way way way too loud. My wife has decided she doesn’t want to go back there due to the level of noise. Something you might want to think about is CoVid and with that the louder it is the more someone, who is not wearing a mask because they are eating, has to speak and project their voice. So, the music doesn’t have to be that loud. Our server said, “it’s so loud in here I cannot hear myself think”. Our daughter orders the chicken fettuccine Alfredo... the breast was not cut up it was just thrown on top. Other than that our food was good. Our server was awesome.

We went for a family birthday dinner and I made a reservation given COVID. We were put in the back room where a large group was, and we were definitely NOT social distanced. It was so loud in the room that we could only talk to the people right next to us. The hostess that was taking us to our table, turned around and said, "I don't think that you can go there.". She checked with someone else and they said it was fine. We should have left.
