We returned for dinner recently and as usual, the food and service were excellent. Everything thing was served fresh. We especially liked the Vegan Street Tacos and Quesadilla Andele (see photos) this time. We heartily recommend Cocina de Carlos and will return.

We stopped in to see what the food was like since it's about ten minutes from our house. We enjoyed our fajitas and would go back again.

We visited for a birthday. Although the restaurant was busy the service was excellent. We had their specialty which was a grilled pineapple filled with jumbo shrimp mango and chorizo. Excellent

We went on Labor Day and the kitchen was very short-staffed. Not sure why. From the time we got there to the time we left it was 2 hours. Very hard on a 3 year-old toddler. The reviews were what attracted us, but the experience...More
