We enjoyed the happy hour on the patio. The only complaint really was the slow service. That seems to have been an issue with Cocobolos since even before the pandemic unfortunately though. Always feel like it’s a hit-or-miss.

Sat out on patio during a busy night with Catbackers group. Our waitress was really good and attentive as busy as it was. The Happy Hour prices were great. Food was average ,(Cocobolos nachos and steak tacos).

We sat on the patio on a Friday night. We were pleased to get on rather quickly. As I joined my friend, it was a little awkward. Thank goodness we are not large. The table was squished in. I couldn’t sit down without pulling the chair out and it hitting the guest behind me. Our service was below average. We had to ask for everything. Please can we have more water, please can you take the dirty plates away, please can we have more chips with our queso. There was not one proactive step taken. There wasn’t a problem getting it. But, we did have to ask for steps of service. Food was great.

We arrived and our Open Table reservation wasn't found. I had to show the confirmation on my phone. We were then seated at a very small 4 top table in the bar that was really probably better suited for 2 people. 3 of 4 in our party are over 6feet, so needless to say, the table was way too small. There were booths and larger tables that sat empty our entire visit.
Chips were over fried. Entrees were fine. The Las Cruces potatoes were delicious.
Service was great, which is what saved the experience for us.

Really good food - it just seemed like our server had way too many tables. She didn’t put our drink order in until we reminded her AFTER our food came. It all worked out, but I felt like we were barely taken care of and we had to ask 2 or 3 times for things. Overall, it was good food so that’s important.

We enjoy going here as it's in an area with foot traffic and on nice days, the two "garage door" sides are open to the outside patio. Great patio, too. Food, service, and ambiance are available to the same degree in other restaurants, but the above is what sets this place apart. That and some interesting items on the menu.

It’s an indoor/outdoor restaurant so they have garage doors that they open during nicer weather. Which is great until there’s no fans in the back of the restaurant for air flow, and you’re literally dripping sweat.

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.

Only 4 star, verge of 3 star. Food ok, salsa was not typical and disliked it. What really turned me off was the extra charges for jalapeños and soft shell tortillas for fajitas.
