An array of different cultural foods. Good size portions. Friendly staff. What I like the most about this place was the attention they gave us. They didn't rush our meal but we always had a plate in front of us.

My wife and I ate here recently. The food was only fair. Everything fried and breaded. Empanadas, quesadilla, taco's. Heavy, cheesy, doughy. Wine list limited and only fair. Service attentive. Atmosphere poor. More like a diner. Old, sticky menu's with pictures of selections

Went to Vinoco last Tuesday night for a friend's birthday. We were a party of 7 ladies. Joe, our waiter, was really helpful in explaining the menu and gave pointers on how much we should order. We tried several of the special empanadas - pulled pork, buffalo chicken & mozzarella & tomato - they were all delicious. We also had... More

My husband and I went to Vinoco for our anniversary. The service was truly outstanding and the thought of the food still excites me. We did a tasting menu and enjoyed every single morsel. When the waiter learned we were celebrating, he decorated our dessert. It was an absolutely lovely place to go. We won't be waiting a whole year... More

This was the second time we visited and both times we enjoyed ourselves! The red sangria is the BEST! The first time we went we ordered the spinach and feta cheese empanadas which I wasn't sure about until I tasted them: Delicious! This time we had chicken empanadas with some sort of coconut curry sauce: I should have ordered more!... More

Vinoco is relatively new to Mineola and still needs to work on some of the flavor combinations on the menu (like the peach infused chipotle bbq chocolate meatball topped with blue cheese and sliced peach, which downright scared me) but overall the food is very good, service excellent, friendly owner and good wine.Their cuisine is described as global fusion.

Order plain salad and didn't ask the price.. Definitely not big-nothing special and very disappointed that so much was charged. Whe I told them they seemed uninterested. Would not go back.

This is a great place to try a lot of new dishes and delicious drinks. The dishes are mainly tasting size and priced accordingly so take advantage and try 2 at a time along with your drinks. Many different flavors and cuisines are represented by the varied menu. Sit back and enjoy.
