    The waistress was fantastic The street fries were terrible and such a tiny portion. The tacos were so tiny and not worth the money. We won't be back anytime soon We went to Bannished brewery the next night, now they know how to make street fries and much cheaper There was no beer on tap so yes just a terrible night out

    The restaurant was nice but the bench seats we were sat at were incredibly uncomfortable and my legs were numb by the time we left. While the service was great the food was just so so and for the cost I expected more.

    First time visiting the Paradise location. Pre-pandemic patron of the downtown location. Decor: nothing special Lighting: Poor. Hard to read a menu printed on black paper. Amenities: No place to hang your clothes or your hat near your table. Drinks: Tad expensive. $56.00 carafe of Sangria, half of it ice. Food: nothing special Portions: smallish Noise level: music too loud Value for money: poor

    Music was WAY too loud; literally had to scream to talk to the other people at the table. Brutal. Food wasn’t great; served cold and didn’t taste at all like chicken (resembled cat food).

    Service was great! Very prompt…. All staff work as a team, which is nice to see. Hoping the tortilla soup will be back on the menu soon…. It is so awesome and I really miss it! Love the salsa and Tostitos, but would like more salsa to go with the quantity of chips provided.

    We've visited Cojones in Paradise a few times for a couple drinks at the bar but this was our first time there on a Saturday night for a meal. Our server, Zack, was amazing! Such a friendly guy with an awesome personality. Answered all our questions and made some wonderful suggestions. The drinks were awesome and we loved the food! Will definitely be back!

    The first time we were at cojones, we enjoyed it very much. This was our second visit. The portions that we got compared to the first visit was actually half the size. The taco was on a small taco, a small scoop of coleslaw and diced tomato, all for 12 dollars. A small scoop of rice and refried beans for 4 dollars each should of come complimentary with the taco meal. The Margarita wasn't even served in a proper Margarita glass, but it was delicious. The diet Pepsi tasted soapy The server was excellent. The food was tasty but needed bigger sizes. It's a good thing we ordered chips and salsa, which should be complimentary for the price of food there, otherwise we would of left still hungary. Would live to see bigger portions if we ever go there again.

    Our waiter was really good. When we Wprovided feedback that the queso dip was not good he took it off the menu. It was watery and did not taste right. The chips and guacamole were not great either. The guacamole was poor quality. Again runny and lacked flavour. We also ordered moose taquitos which were excellent. Blueberry mojito was also really good.
