Cocina Superior Ratings and Reviews
Casual atmosphere with good food and a fun vibe! The people who work here are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Everything I've ever eaten here has been good. Except for the gluten free tortillas, which should just come off the menu because the corn tortillas are gluten free and they actually taste good.
I was disappointed. The noise level in the room to the right with the garage doors was almost unbearable. Yes it was packed and noise comes with the territory but it bounced off the doors and the glass. At times we couldn't talk because we couldn't hear. Food was average and service was fine. Don't plan to return unless planning to sit at the bar for drinks.
I always enjoy this restaurant! The food is above average and the drinks are tasty. Order drinks from the bar if you are seated in the dining room. The drinks from the kitchen are not as good. Service is good. Chips and salsa are the best. Can be pricey if you plan to eat and drink!
This restaurant had been recommended by friends & it did not disappoint! The shrimp brochette was DELICIOUS as was the chipotle shrimp. The salsa was addicting & the table side guacamole was so good!! We even went back the next day for lunch bc dinner was so good. The shrimp brochette was not on the lunch menu but they made it for us anyway!!! Highly recommend this place!!
We had reservations, but were seated 15 minutes after our reservation time. It was another 20 minutes before anybody took our order. It was so noisy, I couldn't hear my husband across our table for two. Food was okay, but I do t think we will be back too soon.
We were glad to have made a reservation for this Saturday evening, as the place was crowded and there was a small queue in the lobby and outside. When the hostess tried to place us at a small table just off the lobby, we requested and received a different, larger table in a better location. Nice and responsive.
The menu has a lot of choices. We've been here for lunch and those selections are available, but the dinner selections are also good. My wife had the veggie-licious enchiladas and said they were fine but unremarkable. Basically just sauteed vegetables rolled in tortillas with cheese on top. Adding salsa helped. I had the roasted pork enchiladas, which were very good (I recommend them). We also sprung for a small guacamole - would have preferred to pay less than $7, but it tasted very fresh and was chunky, not completely pureed.
The arroz verde is delicious and the beans also flavorful. My wife doesn't usually like refried beans, but complemented these (maybe because her veggie enchiladas were meh).
Our server was prompt and attentive, but not very well-versed in the menu. He didn't know the price of well cocktails ("about $7, I think") and when asked to describe the roasted pork enchiladas, didn't understand that they're not just pork rolled up, but are quite juicy and almost al pastor. As for the cocktails, they were very small, definitely overpriced and not worth the $6.50. Have a beer or margarita instead.
We'll be back. This is a good spot.
I had a really good time and the food was great. It was my friend's birthday and he said this was his top pick to eat on his special day. I have a food allergy and the Waiter was very understanding and made sure nothing came to the table that would make me sick . That really matters to me that he took that extra step for me. Overall I had a great time and I would go back again. The food was amazing.
The service and food was terrible. They clearly were not properly staffed in the dining room and the kitchen. My folks who live here, said that the food has never been this terrible. The kids cooking in the kitchen were not the same people that are normally working. If they can't provide the same level of service and food quality the day after a holiday, they should stay closed until their normal staff can be there.
I was a little underwhelmed. The prices were not way out of line, and the food was decent. I had fish tacos and my wife had chicken enchiladas, neither was amazing, but certainly okay. The salsa and chips were amazing! Service was slower than I expected (seemed like they were short-handed that night) and it was noisy, even for a evening when it wasn't so busy. We came to celebrate an anniversary, but I doubt we'll come again unless we just happen to be close and really want some Tex-Mex food.
We made reservations the Friday before the birthday luncheon (11 people reserved). I called the restaurant that day to be sure they had us down....my first time with Open Table. When we arrived at 11:30 they did not have the table ready. We waited 10 minutes for it to be set up. They set us up outside even though inside was not busy. There were bugs, bees and a bird in the outside area where we were sitting. They opened the door to try and get the bird out....just let the heat in; bird stayed for lunch. Had to track the waiter down several times to get service. Checks were very late in getting done. We had attendees that had a meeting at 1pm and were late to their meetings due to slowness of service. Waiter indicated he was normally catering staff. At one point I had to get someone to get his attention as he and the other waiters were too busy talking to notice me when I was waiting to talk with him . We were on our lunch hour and given special occasion expected it to take us over an hour but not an 1hr. and a half just to get food, eat, and pay out.
