    My food showed up cold. When I asked to have it sent back and taken off our bill, I got a long explanation that "it's cold outside", "the sauce made the fish cold", "it's seared so the inside is still cold". Regardless, the rice, brussels sprouts and shrimp all showed up cold, in addition to my main meal. I didn't eat it and just asked for it to be removed from our bill, they only gave me a 50% discount on my dish. We sat outside, and requested to have heater moved to our table (all the heaters were available, we were the only party outside). We had to ask 5 different people for help before the 5th one explained it would be a fire hazard to move the heater to our table. So we sat outside with the expectation of a heater for an hour, just to be told we couldn't actually use one..

    Went here for the first time and was mind blown!! The food and drinks were amazing and the service was perfect. I had the Agra Chile de Atun Fresco (Ahi Tuna Avo Mango etc. and the Shrimp Tacos (best ever) and my husband had the Huevos Con Costilla Short Rib Fajita and the special tacos of the day, and I had the spicy Pina Gordita and another drink (forgotten the name- complex, layered cocktails) . 10 out of 10 and will be back soon.

    Great experience. This was the second time we went to Cocina Hermanas. For the second time Gabriel made the experience and outstanding one . Gabriel’s attention to detail and ensuring customers have a great experience with service, food, and the whole experience is beyond what I have experienced. Mathis message is to the owners of the restaurant, you should consider making Gabriel run your restaurant.

    Great food. Delicious cocktails. Good service. The food came out timely. Everything was so good. Salads were perfectly dressed. The ceviches were fresh and flavorful. The tacos were all delicious. We ordered the trio, then ordered another plate of birria because they were so dang good. The chicharon was “chef’s kiss!” Cocktails were very good and strong!!

    My sis in law brought me here for a post birthday lunch- we ordered the ceviche- fresh and delicious with a variety of fish and shrimp and a tangy sauce, I ordered the chicken enchilada with red mole sauce- it was sooo good. Sis in law had the tacos and liked it spicy- she’s from Texas so she said this is authentic Mexican haha - The free chips and salsa was a nice plus - overall a very good meal and the server was super friendly and attentive - would highly recommend this restaurant!

    Food and Service were excellent but it was 103 outside and it felt like there was no AC on. I left the restaurant in a giant sweat ball. And the more people who came in the hotter it got. If your AC wasn't working then you should let people know - if you were just being cheap then you should also let people know.

    This is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. Great quality food with terrific balance of flavors. My wife had the shrimp with butter and garlic which was impressively not greasy or oily. My pork shoulder with chili sauce was spectacular and I could not get enough of it. The homemade guacamole we had was top notch and fresh. Margaritas were delicious and the churros to finish off the dinner were hot & crispy with just the right amount of chocolate dipping sauce on the side. The servers and kitchen were all very busy since it was a Saturday night but the restaurant ran smoothly with purpose, professionalism, and a smile. This was a great dinner all the way around. We will absolutely be back!

    We dined outside and enjoyed their patio right in the heart of Danville. Our server, Andreas, was so friendly and attentive! As was the rest of the staff that dropped off plates and drinks. The patio was so nice as it was such a hot day and the evening dinner was such a treat. The food was good and flavorful, but lacked the spice/heat expected. We enjoyed every dish and definitely will be returning! Just maybe we’ll pack some hot sauce. Drinks were phenomenal and refreshing! Absolutely perfect for a hot summer night.

    Cocina HermanasResponded on June 12, 2022Hi there! Thanks so much for the kind words! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us. I wanted to mention that we do offer a hot habanero salsa for all of our guests, and it definitely has the heat you may be looking for, just remember to ask your server for a side of it. Thanks again, and looking forward to seeing you again soon! Cheers!

    Worst service I’ve experienced. I ordered guacamole twice, it never came. My mother in law ordered a beer, that never came. We were out of chips for 30 minutes, we asked for a refill, they never came. My mother in law’s enchiladas never came at all. At one point she walked into the kitchen asking about her beer & meal. She had to eat after the rest of us finished. And it was her birthday. To top it off, we were charged a 20% gratuity as we were a party of 7.

    Consistently delicious food and drinks with a great outside patio full of charm. I’m particularly fond of the the fajita bowl with shrimp. Nicely portioned with delicious and perfectly al dente veg and shrimp which come out succulent and juicy every time! While that is a favorite, my husband and I have tried a variety of dishes and can say we’ve never been disappointed.
